"The Other Side"

AdvantagesDooyoo is more straightforward than Ciao, and probably more remunerative

DisadvantagesDooyoo is a less animated and seems to be a less well-read site than Ciao

"This review was first posted on Dooyoo, in a slightly different version, as my fiftieth for that site. The idea was reflect on my experience there, and to do so by comparison with what happened on Ciao. The two sites do not, after all, exist in isolation. They are, so far as I can ascertain, closer to each other in purpose and style than to any other opinionating sites. Consumers seeking guidance might look at either or both, among the many sources ..." Read review

Dooyoo do dooyoo? Dooyoo ? Dooyoo really ?

Advantages-

Disadvantages-

"What is Dooyoo? ~*~*~*~*~*~* Dooyoo is a consumer resource site that enables you to find unbiased evaluations of products written by real consumers - not ad-men, not the manufacturers, but a real person, who has purchased or used the product and is giving their honest opinion. Imagine, for instance, that you were considering buying a new tumble dryer, but wanted a little more information first. You COULD go to a showroom, but chances are the ..." Read review

Why I do Dooyoo - Anew!

AdvantagesFair and rapid system of payment and rewards, site works rapidly, no unhealthy competition

DisadvantagesLong time for new products to appear

"Dooyoo is, as far as I know, the only other consumer opinion site that's UK-based. I had no intention of joining it - Ciao can be time-consuming enough! - until a weekend at the start of November 2003, when Ciao was unusable. Withdrawal symptoms crept in, and I decided to register at Dooyoo. In many respects it's similar to Ciao - the overall layout, the method of submitting reviews, and the rating/commenting system all work in much the same way, ..." Read review

Dooyoo - Slow but worth it - UPDATED

AdvantagesShare opinions with others | Quick payment

DisadvantagesCan be quiet | Site can be slow to load

"**UPDATE AT BOTTOM** While reading reviews here on Ciao, I noticed a review about another consumer review website, Dooyoo, so ever the inquisitive person that I am, I went over to have a look. Then I thought, I may as register, so I did, then I had a look and read around the site. The next thing I knew I posted a review and then I was hooked. So now I'm going to return the favour and maybe persuade someone else to give Dooyoo a try. ~~~What ..." Read review

I Doo Doo Yoo

AdvantagesGets the old grey cells working again writing reviews

DisadvantagesToo addictive!!

"...on the homepage of www. Dooyoo.co.uk and took me less than five minutes to join and start adding reviews. The financial rewards are completely different on DooYoo than Ciao. With Dooyoo isyou receive 'Dooyoo miles' that are are rewarded for writing reviews and views and ratings on the reviews - if you write over 150 words you receive 500 'miles' . The 'miles' can then be exchanged for either a cheque, Amazon vouchers or be given to ..." Read review

Changes Apace at Dooyoo

AdvantagesFast loading pages, some really good writers, common sense support team

DisadvantagesPayments recently lowered, slow to process suggestions, no formatting or pictures in reviews

"If you are a member of Ciao and reading this you will probably already be aware of dooyoo and what it does. Of course not everyone who reads reviews on Ciao is a member and as a result, and also due to recent changes in dooyoo’s payment structure, I thought perhaps it was time for a review of a site which rivals Ciao but is quite different in some regards. ==What is Dooyoo?== Like Ciao, dooyoo has several sites for different European territories. ..."

YooDoo Disappoint Me...

AdvantagesYou get paid a little for writing reviews.

DisadvantagesProblems seem to arise when earned money is requested, illogical account suspension & deletion

"===In the Beginning there was the word, and the word was DooYoo...=== DooYoo is a site much like Ciao, where consumers can go to read the latest reviews on products; everything from perfumes and laptops, to baked beans and toilet rolls. By joining the DooYoo website, which is quick and simple to do, users can create an account which enables them to be paid for writing reviews, and for each time a user rates their reviews. I joined DooYoo in February ..." Read review

I do Dooyoo, do you do Dooyoo, well do you?

Advantagespayment system, not as competitive as Ciao

DisadvantagesProduct database, bugs, main page layout

"Well it had to happen sooner of later didn’t it? One cold and nasty day last month I was sat here at a loss. Ciao was down, and I had nothing to do (apart from my job I suppose!). Curiosity got the better of me and I decided to wander across to ‘the other side’ or Dooyoo as it is more commonly know. I should have felt a little bit guilty, even a little like I’d betrayed a good friend, but no, the monetary gain flashed before my eyes. ‘Three ..." Read review

Dooyoo Do The Doo ? - UPDATED !

AdvantagesA good review site, which is very similar to Ciao...

DisadvantagesBut has drawbacks... read on...

"...the audience for my opinions, dooyoo.co.uk was the obvious choice. Dooyoo is a German based company which lauched in May 2000, providing "a dynamic internet platform enabling customers to make better buying decisions". The site works in a very similar way to Ciao and Epinions - everyday people can register and write about their experiences on both products and services with virtually any product or companies. In return, they get paid a small fee ..." Read review

1000 reviews and £850 later...

Advantagesmake money

Disadvantagesguides

"It's now been 7 ½ months since I happened upon Dooyoo, and what a productive time that has been. It was late one evening when, trawling the money making threads on MSE.com, I read about a review site. It seemed a great idea; as an English teacher I knew I could write, and so I hopped over to Dooyoo and haven't looked back since. At first, I wasn't clear on what you got paid, and so I took the first thing in front of me, wrote a couple of hundred ..." Read review

Doo yoo want CASH ??

AdvantagesMore earning potential, competitions

DisadvantagesNo community spirit, site navigation

"***Introduction*** Whilst there are many consumer review sites on the Internet these days, to my mind there are really only two that constitute viable time consumption, service and competition, Ciao and their rivals Dooyoo. Having been a member of the former for over two years now, I did in due course join Dooyoo too although it wasn't until about six months ago that I paid any real attention or time to Dooyoo (whilst on a ciao sabbatical). ..."

i do dooyoo

Advantagesgood customer care, easy to use

Disadvantagescost of reviews differ now

"I have just been venting my frustrations with Dooyoo to Mrs B and I thought it would be nice to share my thoughts with fellow reviewers who may agree/disagree with me but at least understand what I mean! Dooyoo is a review site similar to what we all know here with Ciao. It has the same prinicples behind it- we users write reviews on various products or give advice on specific topics and then we get paid to write them. === Layout=== I find ..." Read review

crowns....annoying guides....and trying to make money on dooyoo! Review with images

AdvantagesStill going strong

DisadvantagesGuides and crowns

"I have been boring and middle-of-the-road of late on dooyoo. They have banned me from being occasionally libelous (fair enough), complementing one too many dooyoo girls, and being rude about the occasional guide. After receiving complaints from dooyoo members about flirting (presumably from the ones who weren't getting compliments) I was rather miffed, none of the girls receiving the compliments actually complaining by all-accounts. Call me stupid ..." Read review

(Another) Dooyoo Vs. Ciao review

AdvantagesHigher pay, Can donate earnings to charity

DisadvantagesHigh payout, navigation, POPUPS, no guestbook

"As a member of Ciao, I inevitably read about Dooyoo, I went over to check out what the fuss was about. If you have never heard of it and you are reading this review, well, see, you have just heard about it. Told you it is inevitable. So what did I find? I found a website that works in a similar way to Ciao. Members write reviews on products, websites, services, etc, as well as participate in debates. Then each member is rewarded for his or her ..."
