Fact Checking

At Wealthy Gorilla, we try our best to make sure that our readers receive correct and factual information when reading our content.

While much of the content on Wealthy Gorilla is opinion based, a large portion of our articles contains information that relies heavily on fact-checking and calculation estimates.

With that in mind, the following information covers exactly what we are now doing on a monthly basis to make sure that our content stays up-to-date, and keeps our readers satisfied. With that being said, there might often be one or two things that we miss, and we encourage any of our readers who spot these mistakes to get in touch with us and give us a heads up.

“We want to do better, we can do better, we will do better.”


Our Content Production Process

Every piece of content published on Wealthy Gorilla goes through a minimum of three people before it’s published:

  1. The Writer
  2. The Editor
  3. The Publisher

After an article has been written by one of our qualified writers, it will be sent to our content manager for review. They’ll try to spot any formatting or grammar mistakes before it’s uploaded. A final fact check is done by the team member in charge of publishing the article.


Net Worth Profiles

Net Worth profiles will often require updating or fact-checking, because celebrities’ net worth estimates, salaries, ages, and other information will change several times throughout the year.

We have recently put systems in place to make sure that all these figures stay updated on a monthly basis.

Where do we source our estimates?

Net Worth estimates featured on Wealthy Gorilla come from a wide variety of sources, including the following:

  • Documents provided by an individual’s attorney
  • Salary/earnings and expenditure information
  • Reputable sources such as Forbes & CelebrityNetWorth

Every Net Worth profile includes a summary table towards the top of the content, with a “Last Updated” row. The date listed in this table is an accurate representation of the last time we updated all the information listed inside the tables, as well as the net worth estimates listed within the article itself.

With that being said, we may have updated other content within the article, such as an individual’s career, awards, etc.

All the net worth figures featured on Wealthy Gorilla are to be viewed as “best estimates” of an individual’s net worth (based on the information available to us), and not necessarily the actual net worth figure.


Most Expensive Lists

Typically, many of our “most expensive” lists won’t require updating as some of the prices are so insane, that nothing ever becomes more expensive.

We also cover lists of modern products – The Most Expensive Cars – for example, which we try to go back and update every few months when necessary.

We use multiple sources and statistics on the internet to calculate exactly which items should appear on the lists. Prices can often fluctuate, for some things more than others, and we put more energy towards lists with a regularly high fluctuation in prices.


Richest Lists

The richest people in the world have net worths so high that they’re constantly increasing and decreasing. We try to update these lists as often as we can, and those updates will often occur after we do a mass update to the individual net worth profiles of any people mentioned on the richest lists.


Overall Fact Checking

Since its creation in 2014, Wealthy Gorilla has amassed a collection of 3,500 articles. With the exponential growth we’ve seen, keeping information updated has become increasingly difficult. With that being said, we’ve taken huge steps toward improving our processes for this, including increasing our tripling our monthly content budget.
