In this short piece we're going to take a look at a household product and discover how to make knowledgeable shopping decisions based on a little research prior to purchase. In this sample case, we shall look at how to read vacuum cleaner reviews (although the same approach could pertain to any consumer goods or services). A lot of folks will most likely have searched tirelessly as they attempt to find that best vacuum for the money, but this is the first mistake, and here's why.

One of the most common blunders made with researching goods or services is that of generalisation. Doing a broad search will not only mean you have heaps more data to plough through, but it will most likely overwhelm you too. Being inundated with data is the last thing you want when trying to simplify your choices. Try to look at it from the eyes of a salesperson. If you were to walk into their shop and ask advice on the best vacuum for the money, they are likely to respond with something like this:

•Best vacuum for HOW MUCH money?

•Best vacuum for WHOM?

•Best vacuum for WHAT?

•Best vacuum for WHERE?

And so on and so forth. Get the picture? So when searching online using such a broad term, it's little wonder you get more results than you know what to do with. Let's break this down further.

If you are someone who lives alone with 3 cats, and 2 malting dogs, then it's more than likely you'll be looking for the best vacuum for pet hair removal. Just by searching for a particular type of vacuum, you have significantly narrowed down your results. Maybe you're old and frail, or have a disability, in which case you will now be looking for the best rated lightweight vacuum for pet hair. Most consumers have a budget in mind too and perhaps a favourite brand also. Add these to your mix and you are really zooming into only those products which will be of interest you. A little simple preparation like this is not time wasted, but time invested.

So the above might now look something like this:

Best lightweight vacuum for pet hair removal

Home use only.

Budget of between  £80-100

Preferred brand .......

So as you can see, you will now get laser targeted results based on your search options and not have to wade through pages and pages of all the various models at extreme ends of the price range, and every known brand to man. Remember, best rated vacuum cleaners for who?, for what?, for how much?, and for where?, plus any other variables that you might need to throw into the mix.

A lot of consumers give up reading online reviews simply because they don't search correctly. Most review sites will give you the options to narrow down your search by brand, price, and type, i.e., best rated vacuum for wood floors, pet hairs, stairways, and so on.
