ve a question and some suggestions though! Question: I notice that "Sort by Review Rating" sorts some products with (lower rating + higher number of reviews) higher than products with (higher rating + lower number of reviews) How does this site determine if a product with (lower rating + higher number of reviews) sorts higher than a product with (higher rating + lower number of reviews)? Suggestions: 1. Allow custom values for "Minimum Number of Reviews" 2. Show exact Review Rating number (e.g., 4.1) for each product GOOD JOB on this website! Consider adding a Google Ad on this website!

To clarify: "show exact review rating" without needing to hover over the stars Another suggestion: Option to increase number of results per page Again, GREAT SITE

Hi waising, thank you for writing and for the kind words. Let me try to answer your questions. The order in which items appear when you choose "Sort by review rating" is determined by Amazon -- my site simply forms the request and sends it to Amazon servers, and later formats the output. Same is true regarding the number of results per page. As to allowing custom values for the minimum number of reviews -- yes, I technically could do that, but I always think twice before adding more input elements to the page as I want to avoid it getting too busy and difficult to use. If, however, you can describe a good use case for it I can give it another thought. And finally, I added the exact rating under the stars display as you suggested. Check it out (you may need to hit Ctrl-F5 in your browser to get a new version of the site's code). As to Google Ads -- I don't get nearly enough traffic to make any meaningful revenue from them, so for now I would rather keep the site clean and free from any ads. Maybe one day I will have enough daily visitors to think about monetization. For now, I would appreciate any help getting there so if you could spread the word about it within your circles (friends, Facebook, Reddit, boards/forums) that would be my best reward. Thanks again for writing!
