What’s a company’s rating?
A company’s rating is determined based on the rating given in the reviews of a company. The resulting rating is an average of ratings of all reviews. But there is a twist.
Each user review also has a weight value. The higher it is - the more a review impacts the overall rating. For instance, a review that rates a company as 3 and has a weight of 2 will impact the overall rating the same way as two reviews that rate a company as 3 and have a weight of 1.
What impacts the review weight
- Author experience on Revain. High-level authors have reviews with more weight. By default author's weight is 1. Starting from level 6, each of your reviews has a default weight of 2, at level 8 that becomes 3, and at level 10 - 4.
- Review age. The older the review, the higher the chance that it’s outdated. The weight of a review that’s older than a month is multiplied by 0.8. If the review is 3+ months old, its weight is multiplied by 0.5, and, in the case of reviews that were left more than a year before, the coefficient is 0.2.
- Review popularity. For each like, the weight of a review is increased by 1 %. The same goes for dislikes. Please note that only likes and dislikes of verified users count.
