New Feature: Company Reviews added to main page
I've just added a new feature to the Board Home Page -- selected Hotrodders Company Reviews.
Towards the bottom of the board home page, you'll now see 2 company reviews, selected per week. These are pulled from our Hotrodders Company Reviews section, in which you can place and read customer reviews for over 300 hotrodding companies. To see the main page of the Hotrodders Company Reviews, click here.
By placing all of our company reviews in one place (rather than scattered in numerous threads all over the board), it becomes much easier for one person to see what hotrodders think of a single company prior to doing business with them. The Company Reviews section is alphabetized and organized for easy use.
Hotrodders Bulletin Board members can enter a 1-5 star rating of each company, plus a description of their experience with that company.
Company Reviews are scanned for profanity, etc. before being posted on the site. I've only had to eliminate a handful of reviews over 2+ years, but we do want them to look somewhat professional.
ONLY members with 25 or more posts can place a Hotrodders Company Review. This is done to prevent company owners from entering fake positive reviews for their own companies, or fake negative reviews for their competitors' companies.
Hotrodders Company Reviews are well-publicized, and word of your review may very well get back to the company you are reviewing. When searching for a particular hotrodding company name with Google, you'll often see our reviews of that company on the same page as that company's website (example searches: Art Morrison Enterprises, Downs Manufacturing, E-Z Wiring. Our publicity of these pages has resulted in multiple happy/angry calls to me from company owners, so we know these reviews are getting read!
Questions, comments, constructive criticism -- just let me know in this thread.
