What is G2 and is it trustworthy?

G2.com is arguably the most popular business software review site, with over 1.8 million user reviews on over 100,000 products.

How does G2 work?

Sellers list their software products on G2.com and select the appropriate product category or categories. Users provide reviews of the software, impacting the product’s rank on a category page, on a G2 Grid® Report, and on other reports, based on G2 score.

What do G2 rankings mean?

By default, G2 sorts products in a category by its “G2 score.”

The G2 score is based on a combination of the number of reviews, a (user) satisfaction score and a market presence score. The higher a product’s G2 score is relative to other products in the same category, the higher the product is ranked.

G2 scores also impact the placement of a vendor on a G2 Grid® Report.

How do I understand G2 reports?

The different kinds of G2 reports:

  • G2 Grid® Reports - position the products in a category based on their market presence and satisfaction. G2 separates the grid into four quadrants: Niche, Contenders, High Performers, and Leaders..
  • Index reports aggregate several data points on one factor. Index reports cover implementation, usability, relationship, or results.
  • Compare Reports compare up to four vendors against each other on user satisfaction ratings.
  • Momentum Grids see the growth trajectory for each product in a category.

The G2 Research Methodology page covers G2’s scoring methodology, definitions, categorizations, and research agenda.
