About AmascoreSearch Widget

Amascore is a robust scoring algorithm for book searches based on Amazon customer reviews. The scoring algorithm will present your search results in a better, more reliable ordering. The score is visualized together with a confidence interval which represents the reliability of the score. In contrast to search engines, such as Google, you should phrase your search in a way that generates many (>20) results.
The Amascore server calculates a score for each book based on a diversity of data, e.g. customer reviews, reliability of customer reviews, popularity, age (as an optional criteria).
The amascore methodology is superior to the calculation of a simple mean customer review and results in much more reliable assessment of the book.
