New Palore Data: Top States for Local Reviews

The latest nugget of data from Palore examines the average number of restaurants by state that have reviews written about them. Looks like Massachusetts takes the cake (sorry, bad pun).

This is somewhat binary as it looks at restaurants that have at least one review. If a restaurant has one review or 100, it is counted as having reviews (the only alternative being no reviews). So there are lots of possible drill downs such as what states or sites lead in average volume of reviews per restaurant.

Such is the nature of Palore’s strategy to whet the market’s appetite for the decidedly more granular “custom jobs.” In the meantime its freebies have been interesting. More data and background on Palore in our past coverage.
