The most common solution to stopping fake reviews that most businesses have applied today is to only accept verified users on their site. This means that legit customers who have actually patronised a certain store or stayed at a certain hotel would be able to leave their feedback online. This means that nothing anonymous gets accepted to promote a transparent reviewing system.
