We receive advertising revenue from our partners. Many advertisers pay us a referral fee if you purchase products or complete lead forms after clicking links or calling phone numbers on our website. This enables us to continue promoting our website as a free service to consumers.
We sometimes offer premium or additional placements on our website to our advertising partners. Our Partners may influence their position on our website, including the order in which they appear on a Top 10 list based on being an advertising partner. For example, when company ranking is subjective (meaning two companies are very close) our advertising partners may be ranked higher.
The analysis, opinions, scores and star ratings assigned to companies on our top 10 lists are our own. Our editors make the best possible effort to maintain editorial integrity.
The summary, analysis, editor's score and user star review rating that appears on a company profile page may be different from the top 10 list. There are several reasons for this. While our top 10 lists rely strictly on editorial analysis and opinion, the User Review section of our website is a combination of customer reviews and aggregated user reviews from around the web. In addition, you may occasionally see a review labeled WARNING issued by us as a review.
It is important to note that ratings and reviews that appear on the User Review section of our website are sometimes not indicative of a typical customer experience. For example, if a company profile contains only one or two reviews, it is possible that the sampling size is too small and the review(s) should not be relied on as typical or even accurate customer experience.
