The UpCity Recommendability Rating determines the credibility and trustworthiness of its certified partners. To assemble the winners, UpCity uses a rating system based on quantity and quality of reviews, engagement with the UpCity community, search engine presence, web authority, and more. 

These eight factors contribute to CIENCE's rating, including information from UpCity and external sources:

  1. UpCity profile: UpCity lists more than 50,000 provider profiles, highlighting nearly forty data points on each provider, including services offered, target markets, and price points.
  2. UpCity engagement: UpCity ensures businesses' positive experiences based on how the service provider interacts on the UpCity site with expert posting, responding to reviews, maintaining a profile, etc.
  3. UpCity reviews: The reviews provide an in-depth view of how a service provider’s customers feel about them and their services, key to how likely UpCity is to recommend this service provider.
  4. Google reviews: Reviews on Google My Business give prospective buyers a credible view of how customers feel about the service provider. 
  5. Search engine presence: This measures how a service provider ranks in search engines and is a good indicator of its authority and domain expertise.
  6. Location consistency: UpCity confirms that the contact information on Google My Business is consistent with a service provider’s UpCity listing.
  7. Domain authority: UpCity uses a trusted domain authority metric to show the authority of a provider’s domain according to Google and other sites.
  8. Website speed and experience: The speed of a provider’s website shows the potential impact of the prospect’s first impression of the business. 

UpCity regularly monitors its proprietary algorithm and makes adjustments to ensure the UpCity Recommendability Rating is objective and in line with today's business environment. 

These ratings help guide UpCity in recommending the top service providers in each local market and nationally, providing businesses with a trusted resource for selecting a partner.
