Snippets of book reviews from well-known publishers like The New York Times, Washington Post and others are often featured on the book cover itself when it goes on sale on Amazon or in store. The same applies to DVDs and music albums. Four or five-star ratings often feature on the cover.
For other industries this isn’t the case typically, think for instance about the hotel world. Many leading publishers and travel blogs publish articles about the best hotels in cities around the world, but these recommendations aren’t readily visible to the general public – you would either need to search for it on Google or read the article when published.
That’s what we’re trying to solve with CriticPick.
Recommendations from trusted experts
We aggregate recommendations from hundreds of trusted publishers, journalists and experts. We list quotes from those publishers and include a link to the relevant article so you can read more about it if you wish, that way we also resurface some articles from those publishers and send them incremental traffic.
Referenced with customer reviews
We only list products or places on our website which have a customer review rating of at least 4 out of 5 stars. That way you can be sure that only great products and places are listed on CriticPick. The ratings you see on our website are actual customer ratings who bought the product; these are aggregated from different sources.
Easily book places or buy products with confidence
We also include links to where you can buy those products or where you can book those hotels, making it more convenient for you as a user – you can quickly book those places or buy those products at trusted websites like Amazon or Booking.com
We earn money through a commission we receive if you decide to buy something at a website (like Amazon or Booking.com) we direct you to for purchasing those products. These commissions have no influence on the ranking, by default, the articles are ranked in chronological order, and you can decide to either list them by price or show recommendations from individual publishers.
