Do you read and rate off-site reviews?

Silverdrop Silverdrop
I've been reading and rating most of the reviews lately, and I've discovered that once I see it's off-site, I tend not to click through and read it. Is this just me? Why do I do this?

If it is an item I'm really interested in - I'll click through and read and then come back and rate. But only if it is something I'm already considering.

Usually I don't bother clicking through, unless it's something I'm really interested in and there aren't many reviews on EF. I think I've actually only read a few off-site reviews.

I usually do, but sometimes I won't bother. It just depends how interested I am in the product. I probably click through about 75% of the time, but not "nearly always." You wouldn't think one extra click would be a deterrant, but apparently it is.

I click on them. And then I rate them! I like to open them in a new tab thought, so I can keep my Eden page open too.

I rarely click an off-site review. I don't know if I'm just too lazy or what. But most of the ones I've seen don't fit the same standards of what I'd call a "great review" on EdenFantasys so that's another reason.

Like Coralbell says... you wouldn't think the extra click would be a deterrent, but somehow it is. I can't figure out why it would be.

I think it just seems like you're leaving what you came here to do and are going into diff. "world". Not sure, but I do know what you mean. I do read and rate those too though. If they take forever to load then I don't. If the background and font is all crazy and hard to read, I click off.

Agreed. I tend to skip over off site reviews.

If I'm interested in the item I'll click through and read it, but not consistently.

If I an interested enough to click the link to get to the review in the first place, one extra click isn't going to stop me from reading the entire thing.

Depends on who wrote it and what the item is.

If it is something I am strongly considering... then yes. But if I see that the link goes to a known site with lots of erotic pictures it all depends on where I am will I click.

I just don't want to mess with being redirected so I too tend to skip over them.

I rarely go to the off-site review. If I'm looking at reviews here, it's because I want to read reviews -here-. I don't want to go clicking off to some other site.

Not so much anymore. Before, I did frequently.

The quality of offsite reviews really varies these days.

I usually read them as well. But if the link goes dead then the whole review is gone and that's very annoying.

I don't read off site ones...if I see I have to link to a seperate site, I just close that review and read a different one

I'm not sure why, but I expect off site reviews to be better than the on site reviews. If someone is actively keeping a site up and running I would expect them to put more effort into their reviews.

My experience however is that is not the case. I typically find the reviews on EF more useful than the off site reviews. So I find myself clicking through less now than I did before.

I agree. It's one thing to have an error or a short review listed here on Eden, but if you have your own site why would you have a review chock full of errors and without a bunch of important info? But I see that quite a bit....odd...
