What a meta-analysis is for the scientific world, that is what Criticpedia is for the consumer market. Just like a team of scientists uses a meta-analysis to get a broader view of what the experts in their respective fields have concluded to be true on a particular subject, so does our team reach out to specific experts to get their opinion on the products we tackle. Our results are honest and trustworthy for 3 simple reasons.
1. We Rely on Answers from Real Experts
It would be not only easy but fun to buy an Electric Vehicle today based on experts’ opinions. There are literally hundreds of videos from high quality content creators like Bjorn Nyland, Ian Sampson and Fully Charged Show to name just a few. If you are in the market for an EV, you are particularly lucky because there is enough affiliate profit in this market to attract people who are extremely talented and also very passionate about this subject.
However, the good news is that every field, almost every category of product will have its fair share of people who are passionate about it and who feel the need to put their opinion out there. Sometimes they may not have the resources to put out YouTube content, they may express their opinions on their own blogs, on their Twitter or Facebook accounts, or they may just add to the growing collections of brilliant ideas on Pinterest. Whatever the case may be, simply finding the right expert, who is both talented and unbiased by affiliate commissions can be an uphill struggle peppered with a lot of frustration.
This is where Criticpedia comes into play! We find the experts! We are passionate about each product that we feature, but we know we are limited in just how many fields we can be expert in. So we have focused on finding the right people and getting them to open up and give us their honest opinion. We then present to you those opinions, unfiltered and unregulated and point you back to the expert that have provided us with that opinion. We even encourage you to go down the rabbit hole, if you have the time, and check out that expert’s full content. We can promise that each one of the experts we feature will have excellent, entertaining content that will expand on the area that you are interested in.
2. We Accumulate, Analyze and Present
Our role is to find the experts and to get their opinions so you don’t have to spend weeks of research just to buy a toaster oven. Just like in a medical meta-analysis we trust our experts to be completely honest in the answers they give, but we also accept that any one single expert can be biased in ways he or she may not even be aware of. That is why the point of a meta-analysis is to get the opinion of several experts and see what they have in common, how they conducted their research and what are the parameters under which they operate.
As a result we can be sure that each one of the products we feature is the best, but, of course, it is the best for a particular set of preferences and personas. Thus, as you read through our articles you will see that we focus on 2 questions when we approach our experts. The first is what their favorite product in a certain category is, and the second is why that product is their favorite.
Whenever the opinions of several experts converge on a single product we first check to see if there isn’t a big commercial push by the manufacturer which might sqew the results. Then, as long as everything checks out, we highlight that product for you so the moment you checkout our articles, it will take you less than 10 seconds to see what the consensus of the experts points to.
3. We Do Not Touch the Products
Finally, it may seem counter-intuitive for a website aiming to find the best products to not actually conduct tests and try out products but that is exactly why we can promise that our conclusions will be completely objective. Our favors cannot be bought by bigger companies that can afford to flood the market with free samples or giveaways!
The products and the manufacturers themselves are twice removed from our consideration. We ask for the opinions of experts and we cumulate those opinions, so even if some of the answers we get might have been tainted by “subjectivity”, the statistical effect of all those resources being pulled together under one research article means you will still be getting honest and trustworthy answers.
