For example, your brand could have a high (700+) positive reviews for ‘price,’ whereas your top competitor only has 200+ reviews on it. So, the consumers appreciate the price of the product and it is probably the leading factor driving your eCommerce sales/revenue under a category.

On the other hand, your top competitor could have 500+ reviews on ‘quality’ whereas, you hardly reach 100 reviews on this aspect. Using this knowledge, you can evaluate your own Product Display Page (PDP) against your competition. It could show that the competitor is focusing more on ‘quality-based’ features and is using them in the advertising/marketing campaigns as well as the PDPs.
