Buying Ratings & Comments for Google Play, iTunes and Amazon

Filed under: Miscellaneous — noblemaster @ 08:56
Fake Reviews

Fake Reviews

Recently, Samsung has been fined for faking online comments. However the rabbit hole goes a lot deeper. It’s not only big companies that are able to buy ratings/comments. As a mobile developer I receive offers every two weeks in average. The offers are usually good for Android and iOS (sometimes Amazon).

Buying ratings/comments appears to be very affordable costing about $200 total for 50 ratings. I never bought comments/ratings for my games but given the amount of those emails I receive there must be plenty of buyers out there? If you see a lot of 5-star ratings/comments for games on Android or iOS and the game doesn’t look that hot, you know there is probably more at play?

Below are three emails that I received in my inbox (website/email hidden). The messages look rather spammy and some might as well be a scam (haven’t tried). I can provide emails and websites upon request. Contact me if you are interested in researching this further.

Sample 1

Age of Conquest ONLINE – Europe/Turn 18 (Narrated)

Filed under: Miscellaneous — noblemaster @ 13:26

Here is a little goodie for all you Age of Conquest enthusiasts out there. I recorded my last turn (18) for a game I am playing on the big map of Europe. Although I am the developer, unfortunately I didn’t have any cheat codes I could use to improve my situation in the game (at least I can’t tell in the video)¹.

¹ no worries, there are no cheat codes in the ONLINE version :p
