Why is the count of reviews different between ‘Reviews by Site’ & ‘Reviews by Rating’?

Mathew Coghlan -


‘Reviews by Site’ shows the total count of reviews on directories. We get this count directly from each site and aggregate it together.

But when we grab the actual review content from sites we only grab the most recent 250 reviews from each directory (some companies have 000’s of reviews and grabbing every single review is not always possible or very useful if these reviews were written 2-3 years ago).

The ‘Reviews by Rating’ tab only displays review data from the actual reviews that we are able to grab which is why the count of reviews may be different.
