Super cool infographic! I love stats like that. If only small business owners could see this and realize how important it is to manage their online reputation.
With the advent and increased emphasis placed on customizable, local SEO, reviews/ratings and positive image are becoming more and more important. This is the future.
Bookmarked. Now the only part not mentioned is the fake reviews economy (pay a company to submit fake reviews) and rich snippet fake reviews. Great stats!
Good point...maybe they'll make a follow up graphic with stats on fake reviews. That would for sure be interesting!
I would imagine the data on 'fake reviews' would either be non-existant or fake itself. There is no real way to detect what is truly real or fake when it comes to reviews.
