About

Rankings.com works with industry experts to rank and award the top products on the market by applying data-driven methodologies. We also research non-commercial categories to help communities, like veterans or those living with disabilities, find the best resources to improve their lives. All our rankings are presented as an interactive directory to make learning about our insights as clear and easy as possible.

With this knowledge we hope to empower our readers with everything they need to make their next purchase and beyond.

Why we exist

Rankings.com was created to solve these problems readers encounter when searching for product advice:

  • No useful methodology: Editors may recommend products based on their own opinions and preferences but not ranking products using any methodology. Other rankings include a methodology but rely on including every possible feature to score each product. This causes information overload, and although the products are ranked, the methodology isn’t optimized to only grade on the features that matter.
  • No useful comparison tools: Readers often prefer to perform their own analysis to see how different products stack up. Without any tools, they’re unable to meaningfully compare products.
  • No exhaustive product list: Many rankings only review 10 or less products, leaving out the rest of the industry which may be suitable for the right readers.

Our core values

  • Credible testing processes: With the help of industry experts, we grade each product against core metrics (chosen by our experts), weigh them (based on overall importance), and use this methodology to determine the final rankings.
  • Exhaustive research and data collection: We compile as big testing group as possible so our rankings reflect the entire industry.
  • Maximum user friendliness: We provide an interactive directory with each rankings guide. You can analyze and compare all products based on your needs and interests. We also allow you to generate a personalized set of rankings based on your preferences.
  • Full transparency: A breakdown of our research and testing processes accompany every rankings guide. Our team frequently updates all our guides to ensure our data is up to date.

What we do

  • Industry experts lead our research: We recruit experts for every ranking. These experts lead our research teams in all aspects of analysis and methodology.
  • Every rankings guide starts with an exhaustive data collection: Each product is given a data analysis where we research features, specifications, actual performance metrics, and even insights from other professional reviews.
  • Data-driven methodologies determine our rankings: Our experts help us in creating a unique methodology for each ranking. We rely on a calculated methodology to focus on pragmatic and balanced recommendations.
  • Methodologies are scored by core metrics: To calculate our rankings, we identify a set of core metrics to score each product against. They are unique to each ranking, comprised of key features we researched during our data collection stage, and chosen for their usefulness in determining a quality product. Finally we set weights for each core metric and then calculate the final rankings.

Interactive Rankings Directory

  • Browse, sort, filter, and compare everything we ranked: For each ranking, we wanted to not only list the best products but allow the consumer to leverage our dataset to select the perfect match for their needs and interests.

Expert Editorial

  • Features Guides explain what makes or breaks good products: We value transparency so we make sure to explain our entire testing process, methodology, and analysis of key features for each type of product. You’ll understand why we chose each core metric and how every product fared on them so by the end of it all you know as much as we do.
  • Editor’s Awards highlight the top performers in every category: To round out our rankings guides we profile the products that took top honors in our core metrics and other useful categories like affordability.
