▲ ▼ Search Engine for Products powered by Reddit
These days the search results from google are full of low quality affiliate marketing blogs. On the other hand, the products recommended on Reddit are generally good. Someone should create a search engine for products recommended on Reddit.
Karma alone cannot be used to determine if a particular product is good. For example, Nexus 5x is one of the most mentioned smartphone on r/Android but its mostly all about of bootloop complains. So sentiment analysis is needed to find whether the post/comment about the product is positive or not.
Another challenge is extracting the product name from the comments. For example, on r/PCMasterRace most people wont link to individual products but would just mention the products.
What do you guys think?
I have made a custom reddit only search engine i can filter results on the basis of karma based on search query but if anybody is up for implementing the sentiment analysis into my code it would be great.

Did you check out DuckDuckGo's reddit bang? i.e !r [followed by your query] that will search reddit and there are other bangs available for other sites as well - https://duckduckgo.com/bang.
I use 'site:reddit.com/r/ ' on Google. But would checkout DDG's reddit bang. Thanks
