CHICAGO, IL –
Consumers who question the integrity of organizations conducting
business on the Web can now take action by utilizing TrustGauge™
- a free resource for consumers that assists in determining the
trustworthiness of websites and facilitates reviews and
complaints of Web businesses.
Historically, there has not
been a way for consumers to determine the trustworthiness of
companies doing business online or any opportunity to complain
about or praise about an organization. TrustGauge provides an
option for consumers to determine who to do business with first,
and a recourse when they feel they have been wronged.
Consumers can submit reviews
and complaints or check the Trust Score™ of individual websites
by downloading the
which features the TrustGauge, by visiting TrustGauge.com. The
BrowserAccelerator toolbar is also equipped with TrustGauge’s
Review and Complaint system so that consumers can submit
information on any site as they surf the Internet.
TrustGauge uses a combination
of factors to determine a websites’ TrustScore™ including the
availability of information about the business such as email and
postal address, websites features such as secure billing pages,
general traffic popularity (provided by
Ranking.com) and the presence or absence of third
party validation seals of approval as those provided by
Website owners are able to add their businesses’ information
into the TrustGauge database to improve their TrustScore™.
TrustGauge.com, part of a family of over 1,000 Internet
domains, was developed with the web community (both consumers
and website owners) in mind. As a leader in making the Internet
all that it can be, TrustGauge’s array of affiliations helps
