Analysis Details

Note: While Bodybuilding.com claims 408 reviews, we counted 388 available on their site.

Fail Deleted Reviews

We discovered a total of 30 deleted reviews for this product, with an average rating of 10. Even though deleted reviews don't affect the average rating, the fact that action was taken to delete reviews raises some red flags about the integrity of the reviews for the product as whole.

There are a few limitations to keep in mind regarding the Deleted Reviews test:
  1. We don't have a magic ability to collect every single deleted review; we can only identify reviews as deleted if we collect them on one date and then notice they are no longer visible on a subsequent date.
  2. We have no information on reviews that were never published in the first place.
  3. We also don't know why these reviews were removed. It could be action from the platform, personal decision by the review author, part of an entire account closure, even some data error on our part, etc.

Fail Unverified Purchases

328 of the 388 total reviews for this product are unverified purchases. The unverified purchasers have rated this product an average of 9.3 while the verified purchasers have rated this product an average of 8.8. Based on our statistical modeling, the discrepancy in average rating between these two groups is significant enough to believe that the difference is not due to random chance, and may indicate that there are unnatural reviews.

Warn Rating Trend

  • Created over 23 days

We counted 388 reviews for this product over the span of 744 days, an average of 0.5 reviews per day. If these reviews were created randomly, there would be a 99.9% chance that we would see 4 or fewer reviews on any given day.

However, we see the following 23 days exceeding this threshold:In total, we found that 203 reviews were created on just 23 days. This is an excessively high number of reviews submitted on these high volume days.

Warn Sample Reviews

22 of the 388 total reviews for this product mentioned the word "sample" within their review. This is more than we would expect see; the presences of any reviews that mention the word "sample" indicates that there may be more, since not all reviewers will disclose that they used a sample within their review.
