Online Dating Review Guidelines

How do I write a good online review of a dating website?

The best dating site reviews are typically helpful to the reader and describe the personal experience that you have had with the website or dating service.We recommend that you ask yourself, “Would I find this review genuine and helpful?” Presenting both the good and the bad gives the impression of a balanced review that tends to carry more weight with readers. Making suggestions to improve certain aspects of the service is helpful and often respected by site owners.

These online reviews can be a review of the services or options being offered by a particular dating website, but it can also review the content of the site (for example the quality and response of the profiles offered), contact options for connecting with other members, quality of the customer service, etc, Looking at the “star rating” options on our website can give you an idea of what readers may be interested in hearing about. In the end, you can review anything about that website that made an impression on you.

Your review should be unique. Readers want to hear YOUR story and YOUR experiences with the dating service that you are reviewing.

Can I complain or write about a bad experience in my review?

Yes, of course. Both positive and negative experiences are helpful to other consumers so long as your reviews are honest, objective, unique and provide as many of the relevant details as possible. Your opinions are generally protected, but be aware, posting blatantly false or defamatory information can have serious legal consequences.

What should I avoid in my reviews?

You should refrain from profanity (it is not necessary) and attacks such as hate speech, bigotry, and lewdness. You should not copy other reviews. Some website categories may be more adult (hookup) oriented which we have chosen to include since more sexually open-minded consumers are entitled to access to customer or member reviews as well. However, your reviews SHOULD NOT include sexually explicit statements or content. It will be edited and/or rejected (deleted) altogether.

Keep in mind that any review that you write about any website or service should not be considered offensive or unsuitable in any way to any reader of any age, race or orientation.

When will my review appear?

In many instances your review may appear instantly or within minutes. However, it could take as long as several hours or even a day or so depending upon the time of submission. So don’t be alarmed if your review does not immediately appear. This is because of our system of checks and balances that are designed to ensure the integrity of the reviews being posted on our website.

Do you ever remove online reviews?

As a rule, no. But, yes we do occasionally remove or reject reviews based upon criteria designed to protect the integrity and objectiveness of our site. We believe in freedom of speech and generally resist censoring our community. However, there are occasions and conditions where a review may be removed that includes (but may not be limited to):

  • Conflicts of interest (competitors, site owners, disgruntled ex-employees, etc.)
  • Hearsay, second-hand experiences/information
  • Personal or vulgar attacks such as hate speech, bigotry, and lewdness, etc.
  • Relevance to the reviewed website
  • Plagiarism, Defamation, Profanity
  • Review Spamming

All reviews are subject to manual approval to protect the integrity of our review website. We do have some automated protections against fraudulent reviews and review spamming. It’s possible that some reviews could be instantly rejected based upon these protections. This is designed to protect both consumers and site owners from fake reviews.

What can I do if my dating website gets a bad review?

Everyone gets a bad review from time to time, especially with online dating reviews. Chances are, one two bad reviews will not hurt your business, as your happier customers or members will soon write more positive, good reviews. All Users should understand that people are much more likely to post negative reviews as opposed to positive reviews. At DateSites.Com, business (website) owners have the opportunity to apply for and verify site ownership which will give them the opportunity to RESPOND to individual reviews and defend their reputation. Additionally, verified owners have the option of allowing Users to ask questions about their products, services and company which can help promote the integrity of your company. Owners can apply for and verify their ownership of any site by clicking on “Do you own this dating website?” on the main review index page for your website. Verified site owners may also request that certain reviews be removed after providing clear, overwhelming and documented evidence that the subject review is detrimental to the owner (false, fake, spam, defamatory, etc.) AND is misleading to the consumer.

DateSites.Com is dedicated to providing fair and accurate information for its Users to rely upon, as much as is reasonably possible, and giving ALL parties to the review a FAIR AND EQUAL chance to express their opinions.
