Some of these product sites are only available online, so there is no retail alternative, and many of them offer discount shopping and Web-only specials with prices that cannot be beat
Belfast, ME (PRWEB) April 17, 2007
The Ratings Guy™ today announces 18 new House & Home shopping websites to its selection of Great Shopping Sites. Whether considering a new house plan, house remodeling, or furniture for the home or home office, online shopping and discount shopping make the grade for quality, trust and consumer experience, free for consumers at TheRatingsGuy.
House and Home shopping websites are combining the convenience of online shopping with the functionality of in-store purchasing; including expedited shipping options and excellent customer service. Products can be seen online in the fabric of selection and placed in rooms alongside other items to gauge the real life effect. Visual panorama views of pieces and group selections are standard options making product selection a true-to-life experience.
The Ratings Guy has recognized sites in order to help consumers find the better sites sooner. Our personal experience with the websites, and in most cases with their products and service levels help our community to find superior, safe and reliable businesses that meet or exceed our standards. Our Google search today revealed 892 million results for the House & Home category making it more difficult than ever before to find the greatest sources on the Web.
"Some of these product sites are only available online, so there is no retail alternative, and many of them offer discount shopping and Web-only specials with prices that cannot be beat," said Katherine Morrow co-founder of TheRatingsGuy.com. "We look for high levels of product quality, superior online presentation and selection options, and an unmatched level of customer service that removes the uncertainty of ordering online". "If the product doesn't arrive as expected and on-time, we say why bother!" she added.
The new list of Great House & Home Shopping Sites is part of The Ratings Guy initiative to help consumers find the better sites sooner. Less than 3% of Web sites make the grade for Great Site status. Access to the complete listing of Great Site reviews is free and is found with all lifestyle categories at http://www.theratingsguy.com. The 18 new sites include:

The Ratings Guy was developed by a team, experienced in the consumer research and ratings field and frustrated with the search industry's inability to separate advertising from editorial. The company reviews and rates websites across an array of popular consumer lifestyle categories including: health & wellness, travel & leisure, house & home, animals & pets, diet & cuisine, kids, shopping, and more. The Ratings Guy is an independent and objective resource, supported by research librarians and researchers (the original search engines) who seek to identify the best Web resources. The company uses a proprietary review methodology to test sites against its own benchmarks for transparency, accuracy, timeliness, functionality, trust, and usefulness. The Ratings Guy hosts the Great Site Benchmarking Network, an exclusive group of Internet thought-leaders working to advance consumer empowerment on the Web.
