On June 24, 2012, Amazon introduced a new policy that would prevent consumers from reviewing products on Amazon.com. A few months later, the policy was rescinded, and the company announced that it would continue to permit reviews on Amazon.
Since then, Amazon has been trying to explain why it made this decision, and the company has made it clear that it doesn’t ban reviews, it’s just not allowing them. But even if you have a bad review, it’s not always a good idea to throw it on your page for the world to read. It’s better to make sure it makes sense to people who are reading the page.
The only thing you can do about reviews is to get rid of them. I mean, this is the first time you see a review on Amazon and immediately go to the review site. Don’t worry, the reviews are coming from you.
The problem is that Amazon is not a good place for reviews. For the review to be valid, it needs to be written by a real person. Also, if you are going to give a review, the review should be helpful and encouraging. It needs to be written in a way that makes sense and could potentially help someone end up getting a product or maybe even recommending it to others.
If you want to make a better case, a review should be written on Amazon, not on the site you are using. The people on Amazon have the skills to make it happen.
Amazon wants to become a place where you can purchase a product, but not to sell it to you. So as long as the review is written by a person who is actually selling the product, Amazon can legally refuse to be your review site. To work around this, you can make it appear that you are getting the product even though you are not.
Amazon’s policies change frequently.
Amazon doesn’t like reviews with links to their site. These links lead people to Amazon’s site, and Amazon doesn’t like that. So you won’t be able to use these links to say, “This product is recommended by this person, or this person has recommended this product to me.” Or a good example would be, “I liked this product, but I haven’t bought anything from Amazon yet.
Amazon also doesn’t like reviews where you’ve made a purchase and then go and link back to the Amazon site.
