VIDEO: 3 Things Google Can do to Help the Fake Review Problem
Welcome Web Punch Nation. I am Matt Jones, your host. It might look a little different today because I was out taking some photos in Canada this last weekend and I dropped a lens that broke, and I didn't want to use that for the video.

I highly recommend you go if you are in Canada. Speaking of Toronto, there was a business owner about a month ago who was used to seeing two to three reviews a week from his business, just a few trickling in, but one morning he woke up and he had 50 new reviews.

But it was during that time when online reviews really started showing up, and there were three original gangsters of online reviews. It was rateitall.com, deja.com, and Epinions. Now, all of those are basically defunct. I think Epinions was the one to last the longest. But all of those have since been acquired and sold off. But during their first year, they accumulated $1,146,201 reviews. So clearly, they were on to something.
