    1. Absolute Power and Monetization:

    The passage emphasizes the perceived absolute power that Trustpilot holds over a business’s brand, reputation, and content on its platform. This power dynamic is underscored by the claim that in order to utilize these features, businesses are required to pay Trustpilot a monthly fee of $200.

    2. Ambiguity in Rules:

    Trustpilot is accused of creating ambiguous rules, leading to confusion about what constitutes a violation. The author questions the justification for restricting the display of a business’s own reviews on its own website, especially when on a free plan.

    3. Ownership of Reviews:

    The author challenges Trustpilot’s assertion that they own the reviews, pointing out Trustpilot’s own terms stating that reviews are considered user-generated content and are owned by the reviewers themselves. This raises the question of how Trustpilot can dictate the use of reviews if they don’t own them.

    4. Removal of Genuine Reviews:

    Trustpilot is further criticized for removing genuine Shoprocket reviews without providing adequate explanation. The author notes personal confirmation of the authenticity of these reviews, highlighting a discrepancy between Trustpilot’s actions and their stated commitment to content integrity.

    5. Trustpilot’s Response and Rules:

    Trustpilot’s response to the removal of reviews is deemed inadequate, and the author draws attention to the response’s poor grammar. Trustpilot asserts that the removal is a matter between them and the users, and the users must provide documentation of their genuine experiences. The author questions the consistency of Trustpilot’s adherence to its own rules, contrasting the stated commitment with observed actions.

    6. Content Integrity and Rule Enforcement:

    Trustpilot’s emphasis on content integrity and adherence to rules is questioned in light of the perceived inconsistency revealed when examining Trustpilot’s own profile.

    Key Themes:

    Trustpilot’s perceived absolute power and monetization strategy.
    Ambiguity in Trustpilot’s rules and restrictions.
    Discrepancy in Trustpilot’s claim to own reviews.
    Criticism of Trustpilot’s removal of genuine reviews.
    Questioning Trustpilot’s commitment to content integrity and rule enforcement.

    It’s an overwhelmingly biased platform that consistently sides with businesses at the expense of clients. The scrutiny seems reserved only for negative reviews, creating a skewed representation where even the most subpar businesses can appear positively rated. Express any slight dissatisfaction, and they swiftly remove your review, subjecting you to a cumbersome process to attempt its restoration. In essence, the irony is undeniable – never place trust in “Trustpilot” for anything.

    TrustPilot is allowing fake reviews to persist, even when presented with evidence of their fraudulent nature. Reviews containing hate speech and racist comments remain untouched even after being flagged for moderation. This has transformed TrustPilot into a platform rife with fake reviews. Those willing to pay companies in India as little as £50 can manipulate their profiles, a stark contrast to TrustPilot’s subscription fee of £250 per month. The choice is clear; with TrustPilot neglecting review monitoring, the incentive to generate fake reviews for improved SEO and company visibility becomes apparent. The lack of quality control in TrustPilot’s business model enables anyone to add 5-star reviews to their own business while tarnishing competitors’ reputations with 1-star reviews. This absence of regulation is evident in the attached screenshots.
