Paris (PRWEB) July 31, 2006
Global Hotel Review the world largest multi-lingual hotel review website is launching Hotel Rank, a propriety algorithm developed by Global Hotel Review to protect against review manipulation and further enhance the quality and the accuracy of hotel reviews throughout theGlobal Hotel Review network of international hotel review websites.
Hotel Rank is a rating scale that is based on a complicated mathematical formula that takes multiple factors in consideration such as: number of reviews submitted per reviewed hotel, number of recommendations for each review, the date of submission of each review, the review trend for each hotel, the number of visitors for each hotel, in addition to a few other undisclosed factors.
“There has been a lot of talk in the media recently about the accuracy and the validity of user generated content; we at Global Hotel Review agree with the media concerns and we believe that most hotel review websites are suffering from a high degree of manipulation,” highlighted Mr. Nawar Alsaadi, GHR General Manager, and he added: “It is for that reason that Global Hotel Review has been working diligently for the last few months to develop and implement its Hotel Rank formula”.
“What’s exciting about Hotel Rank is that this formula is not a static formula, but Hotel Rank values are being constantly adjusted to reflect variable factors such as the age of submitted reviews and overall popularity for each hotel compared to the website’s traffic,” highlighted Mr.Claudiu Danila, GHR Chief Technology Officer.
“Global Hotel Review believes that it is virtually impossible to verify the accuracy of every submitted review manually, and this is why the introduction of an algorithm such as Hotel Rank will go a long way in limiting the effects of review manipulation and greatly improving user confidence in the review ratings for GHR listed hotels,” added Mr. Anes Altai, GHR Commercial Manager.
Global Hotel Review will continue to introduce and develop new and innovative features in the domain of online travel, as it works to be the dominant player in the field of travel user generated content.
