Outros exemplos seriam sites que fazem reviews de celulares, notebooks, etc. O mesmo se aplica a sites e blogs menores, que comparam diferentes tipos de produtos.
Shifting the focus to the time span, we may need to measure some "Interim Metrics", which give us some insight during the journey itself, as well as we need to measure some "Final Metrics" at the end of the journey to inform use if the overall initiative was successful or not.

While many small businesses think that they can't do anything about online reviews, that's not true.

Sixty-eight percent of consumers left a local business review when asked. So assuming a business's products or services are not subpar, unfair negative reviews will get buried by reviews by happier customers.
