Why does it say there are no reviews for my product?
Sometimes you run a ReviewMeta.com report and see the dreaded “There aren’t any reviews for this product yet!” message. You’ve double-checked the Amazon listing and it says there are reviews! So what gives?
There’s a few things that can be happening and a couple of tricks you can try if clicking the “Check Again” button over and over doesn’t seem to work.
1. There may be “ratings”, but are there reviews?
We can’t analyze Amazon’s “One-Tap” Ratings. Be sure to check to see if there are any actual written reviews for the product you are trying to analyze. If there are no written reviews, there is nothing for us to analyze!
2. Are you looking at an international site but it is displaying reviews from Amazon.com?
This is probably the most common scenario that I see when ReviewMeta.com users write in. Often times, if an item is for sale on an international version of Amazon (Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, etc), and there are no reviews on that platform, it will show a handful of reviews for the same product on Amazon.com.
For example, this product on Amazon.co.uk doesn’t have any reviews, but it’s displaying some review data from Amazon.com:
If you scroll down to the reviews, you’ll see that it shows no reviews locally, but that there are reviews from Amazon.com:
If you want to run these reviews through ReviewMeta.com, you’ll have to scroll to the end of the reviews and click the link at the bottom to go to the product on Amazon.com:
From there, you’ll be able to run that product through ReviewMeta.com and it should work!
3. Are you looking at a Product Variation that has no reviews?
Sometimes you’ll see an Amazon product listing that appears to have a bunch of reviews, only to find that ReviewMeta.com does not detect any. It could be that the product variation you are analyzing doesn’t actually have any reviews to show.
To check if this is the case, try visiting the customer review page for that product. Scroll down to the review overview and click the link to see all reviews:
Once the page loads, try running that URL through ReviewMeta.com – either by clicking the extension or copying and pasting the URL in to ReviewMeta.com’s search box.
If that doesn’t work, try clicking through to an individual review (click the title of any review), and then click the product that is displayed in the top-right corner under “Product Details”. Try running the new URL through ReviewMeta.com.
If all else fails,
4. Contact Us.
Sometimes Amazon works in strange ways and confuses ReviewMeta.com. If all else fails, don’t hesitate to contact us and let us know what’s up. If you use the “Report Feedback” feature, then we’ll automatically be notified the URL of the report you are viewing, but also be sure to include the URL of the product you want to analyze.
Not only will we be able to fix that individual report for you, your feedback will help us identify and fix any errors that might be causing the problem in the first place!
Be sure to include your email if you want a heads up about when the report is fixed.
