What do the 'Scoring Strength' icons mean on your Top 10 lists?

Each product in our Top 10 lists will have one or all of these icons displayed at the bottom of their product card, representing what factors contributed to the product ranking. The star icon represents user reviews, the check mark icon represents editorial recommendations, the dollar sign represents bestseller lists, and the chat bubble represents social buzz.
