Before making a buying decision, a hosting customer undergoes review & rating of various web hosting providers. Ananova with SiteGeek asks the online visitors to share their overall experience and how likely they wish to recommend the hosting provider to others.

Ananova does online surveys, polls, and closed-ended questionnaires. Based on the quantitative data, i.e., responses received, the visitor selects the answer option most appropriate with his wisdom. The process is endlessly available on the website, and the expert team collects data on the end date of each month for that particular month. The data is analyzed with a pre-defined subset (Cross-sectional) and examined with other months in a given year and yearly data with previous years to collect statistical information. The historical data helps to validate observations of the primary data.

Each month the data is collected, and hypotheses are proved or disproved. Each month a report is generated listing “Ananova trusted web hosting providers” to present findings.

My Opinion
