What are "ratings and reviews"?

Buzzerfly features unbiased reviews by people like you about businesses and professionals in your area. Businesses are rated on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. Stars represent an average of all reviews (positive and negative). By submitting a review, you are helping others in your community find reputable businesses.

How do I submit a review?

If the business is already listed, login to the site and click the “rate this pro” button below the business listing.

How can I submit a review for a business not listed on your site?

Simply login to the site, click on the "Rate a Pro" button on the navigation bar and enter as much business information as you have along with your review. The listing will be automatically generated.

If the business is in an industry that is not represented on our site, please contact us. Perhaps we will add that category in the near future.

How can I be sure to write a review that is not too offensive?

Check out our rating and reviews guidelines and read what is considered inappropriate or offensive.

Why should I become a registered member?

Registering as a member with Buzzerfly allows you to save business listings that you use regularly and keep track of businesses that you would like to use in the future.

Will you distribute my email address?

We only ask for your email address to distinguish you from other users. We will not sell your personal information to marketing firms or anyone else for that matter. This is another way that we positively distinguish ourselves from other websites.

It seems that only certain businesses have a 5-star rating. Do the 5-star businesses pay hefty fees to Buzzerfly?

Nothing could be further from the truth. Not only is Buzzerfly free for you to read, rate and review, it is also free for businesses to list. And unlike similar websites that only allow businesses that pay fees to be rated, Buzzerfly allows any business to be represented, free of charge. Buzzerfly welcomes ALL reviews, both positive and negative. We don't benefit financially from the business directory. We only benefit from honest reviews by people like you.

How is the order of the business listings determined?

We're glad you asked. Our listing order is completely unique. You want to see the businesses that others have used and rated. That is, after all, why you've come to Buzzerfly. For this reason, we list our businesses by the number of reviews received. This doesn't mean that businesses further down the list are bad. It just means that they are either newly listed, or infrequently reviewed. In fact, the first listing could be the one with the most reviews, but the worst star rating.

Will Buzzerfly remove a business from the website if requested?

No. We think knowing which business to avoid is as important as deciding which business to patronize.

When will my city be added to the Buzzerfly community?

We will likely have listings in your city soon. We won’t stop until we are at least 50 metro areas strong. If your region is not represented, please email us. If we get enough requests, we will give it priority.
