The current internet landscape is filled with review and rankings sites, but many consistently pose the same problems for their readers: they have a limited product list, don’t utilize a useful methodology, and offer no comparison tools. Editors often choose the best from a small number of products based either on subjective, personal preferences or weighty methodologies bogged down by too much information. They also offer no meaningful tools for those consumers who wish to perform their own analysis. Rankings.com addresses those shortcomings by adhering to a strict set of core values: a credible testing processes, exhaustive research and data collection, maximum user friendliness, and full transparency.
Industry experts are recruited to lead research teams in all aspects of analysis and methodology, starting with compiling as large of a testing group as possible, as to reflect the offerings of an entire industry. A unique, data-driven methodology is then created for each ranking, focused on producing pragmatic and balanced recommendations. Those methodologies are scored by core metrics comprised of key features chosen for their usefulness to consumers. Weights are then set for each core metric and the final rankings are calculated.
All Rankings.com results are presented in an interactive directory which gives the reader the ability to browse, sort, filter, and compare every product or resource. Expert editorials offer full transparency and explain every aspect of the testing process, methodology, and provide an analysis of key features for each type of product. Finally, Editor’s Awards highlight the top performers in every category.
