How do we know that your site does not receive money for the ratings of different companies? Do you allow advertising by companies you rate?
I understand your concern. You’ll actually find the answer to this at the footer of this page (“How We Make Money“) In short, we do in fact earn commission from products and services we recommend, as this is what enables us to fund our research and writing. While we could simply recommend whoever pays the highest commission, we take a long term approach and recommend the absolute best product or service without regard to payment. By building a reputation of providing honest and unbiased reviews, any short term revenue loss should be more than made up for by the long term loyalty of our readers.
Hope that clears it up, but if not I’m happy to answer any more questions.
