Amazon's Magical Disappearing Reviews
That's the sound authors didn't hear before waking up to a strange new world on Amazon in recent weeks. Did we fall down the rabbit hole? It seems that way for many authors as well as reviewers whose reviews have simply disappeared.
THIS IS READER FEEDBACK
You probably know that the Amazon system of reviews does not actually contain reviews, much. What they are really after is that all-important reader feedback. That is part of why many 5-star reviews have vanished like the grin on the Cheshire Cat.
We're still here, you know. We still have books to market. This latest debacle seems more like a course correction on Amazon's part than anything else. Their system was clogged with schemes and scams, "experts" guiding people to "bestseller status," and other more insidious plans to get books and products to rank on Amazon.
None of that is necessary. We are building our own readership. Scams don't help.
Learn what you do need to know about the review system and how to be less dependent on our distribution helper called Amazon. Let's work together. Manage your reviews and keep moving forward with your author platform.
You guessed it: The e-course is now available on... Amazon. Be informed!
