My tendency upon reading a review is to buy the items that were positively reviewed, so I suppose it depends what sort of margin the positively reviewed items get. Of course, positive reviews might also signal places that are already popular, so maybe trying to get a good review from a critic isn’t all that important. I’d be interested to see what the data say.
