Shopping - Amascore Search

Description: Amascore is a robust scoring algorithm for book, music, video, hard- and software searches based on Amazon customer reviews. The scoring algorithm will present your search results in a better, more reliable ordering. The score is visualized together with a confidence interval which represents the reliability of the score. In contrast to search engines like Google you should phrase your search such that it generates many (>20) results.

The amascore server calculates a score for each book bases on a diversity of data, e.g. customer reviews, reliability of customer reviews, popularity, age (as an optional criteria).
In addition to the score itself the reliability of the score (confidence interval) is given. In general: The higher the score the better the book, the smaller the confidence interval the more reliable the judgement.

The amascore methodology is superior to the calculation of a simple mean customer review and results in much more reliable assessment of the book, see Amascore help page for more information.
