Comment on Google Giving Less Weight to Reviews of Places You Stop Visiting? by Jason Freeman

I'm concerned about certain reviews that are not of quality when it comes to how they are written. Certainly, there are nuances about every customer's taste and preferences. I would also take into consideration a reviewer's lifestyle if we take into account repeated visits. For example is a review from a traveler who constantly visits restaurants weighted more or less than a person who is stationary and visits the same place every day? I think that's a nuance that should be discussed as well.

I like to order food by phone or web so I don't have to visit that place of business. What's the "verdict" on that?

Hi Darren, It's possible that for some business types this may not make a lot of sense, such as lawyers or accountants. But, for restaurants, hair salons, and other places you might reasonably return to on a regular basis, wondering why you aren't does seem like a good thing to be concerned about. Most patents are written to "people learned in the art" that is being discussed. The point you raise is likely an obvious one to most people who know about the value of reviews. I think this patent has a lot of merit. When I come across reviews that are 3-4 years old, or older for a restaurant, I don't think they have much value because restaurants do change over time; that is likely common sense, too. Applying a decay factor to the scores of those older reviews sounds reasonable. A patent on boosting sites that get return visits sounds like a good idea, and might lead to a really strong review site.

Diminishing a review because it's not getting repeat visits doesn't make much sense for many business types. You might see a lawyer for a specific service just once in your life. You're not going to go back and visit him at his office all the time. Or service area businesses that come to you. Or if you're travelling and buy something at a retail store. There are so many businesses that are not going to have repeat visits. Rather than diminishing when you don't get repeat visits, it would make more sense for it to be a booster when you DO get repeat visits. Maybe I'll apply for a patent on that reverse concept. :)

Hi Gemma, They did make some interesting comments in the patent, like saying that if someone returns to the area where a restaurant is located, but doesn't go back to that restaurant, it is possible that there is a reason why they haven't. It could be difficult capturing everything in a patent, but creating something that is reasonable should be possible. I would be wondering why someone would just stop going to a specific place.

I understand that a review made in 2016 should not have the same relevance as one in 2017, time can be a fundamental factor (especially in the development of business). But, if a user did a good review at a specific time, he should not lose interest just because he does not return to that place... Thanks for sharing the information. Very interesting. !
