How can we help?

Do reviews that aren't currently recommended impact the business's star rating?

In short, no, reviews in the “not currently recommended” section for a business do not factor into the overall star rating of that business. Only the star ratings of recommended reviews are used to calculate the business's overall rating.

We hope to continually improve the recommendation software, and appreciate any feedback you may have.
