What Happened to My Kindle Book Reviews? Why Amazon Deletes Reviews

0
11

Have you ever checked your Amazon reviews and noticed you have less. Or have you had a friend or family member tell you that they published a review, but it doesn’t show up?

Well, that is because Amazon has certain ways to figure out if that review might be biased.

In this video I will share with you some pretty good indications as to why Amazon might think a review could be biased and will remove it. Amazon KDP doesn’t tell you these things. Instead, we are left to guess.

But because of my experience with Google SEO and other companies like that, I have a little knowledge on the area and will share with you the top reasons why a review will be dismissed or even erased.

  1. I publish a book on e-book and I will like to pull the book because I have some pages in out of order, help , help , help  how can I pull it before people start looking into it . Answer Asp

  2. Useful information. Worrying though. I do have a couple of 'fans' who always give me five star reviews. Not sure if one of them reviews other books. She doesn't like reviewing but did it because I asked her. (She wrote and told me, and I asked her to review.)
    Thanks for the info. I am reading your stuff at the moment. Good stuff

  3. Thanks DAve – Awesome! YUP , it has happened to me many times. I just read your article on your site – now I know! Keep 'em coming. This technical advice is GOLD.

  4. I've also heard that they'll remove the review if the reviewer is your "Friend" on FaceBook. Is that so?

  5. Amazon check to see if elements of your account match elements of another person's account. Also..the same rule goes for reviewers. If elements of a reviewer's account matches that of another reviewer;s account, both/all will be taken down. It is a one review for household/name. So, if you have two people living in a property and both are registered there only one could review otherwise both will be deleted.

  6. You would think that Amazon wouldn't care so much, I mean reviews mean sales and sales are good for Amazon, and when you consider all that crap on Amazon, particularly ebooks (I mean scamphlets which Amazon allows) it makes me think that the entire process is flawed or biased. If I was an Amazon stock holder I would encourage reviews not be all regulatory over it.

  7. If you buy an amazon gift card and that gift card is used to buy your book, then they give it a 5 star review

  8. I find it confusing because there is not a clear line drawn…..who qualifies as a "friend" and how close does the family member have to be for it to not be ok? Is a cousin ok? All my contacts are my "friends"….so is that okay to ask them to leave a review? I've told my close friends not too…. it sure would help though as it's so hard to get reviews as a new author from strangers.

  9. So in my case, I am an author, and I had but two reviews. The first guy I have no idea who he was. He did not give me a great review because he said I was a first run author, which, I was. further he said that I have grammar mistakes to the point that he got frustrated and put the book down after an hour. This got erased. I can post the review on the bottom for you. The next one that was erased was also by someone I did not know. he went on my website and I recommended the book for him. When he actually read much of the book quite fast I told him its a good idea to give me a review on amazon. I did not say give me a good review. I just said it would be helpful for others to know how good the book is if you give it a review. He was clearly seeing the efficacy of my book because he gave me an amazing review and I will post this on the bottom also.

    Considering that I self-published this book and two people have reviewed my book it is hard earned, and for amazon to reviews off is simply unfair.
    AND ANOTHER THING… I was BANNED by amazon for being on their discussion boards. What I did I posted the same content which but with a different headline in relevant groups on amazon discussions. mind you, you might think that I should be banned because of placing the same content. however since my book is about sexual addiction and many people in may fields are suffering from this, it is relevant for me to post a head line in some women's forum about cheating husbands, "

    Discussion board on CHEATING HUSBANDS
    My Headline: SAVE YOUR HUSBAND FROM CHEATING"
    & content: Many suffer from sexual manipulations, and they cannot get away from something which they think to be natural, or instinctive. There is a series of mind manipulations used against the viewer of various sexual presentations.
    1. Become aware of the manipulations
    2. How they work on the mind
    3. learn how your mind works
    4. practice canceling the effects of these manipulations on the mind until you master this skill.

    and I can place the same content with a different headline in another discussion board named "TEEN MASTURBATION" and it is totally relevant.

    Discussion board on TEEN MASTURBATION
    My headline: TEENS HAVE LITTLE INFORMATION ON SEX AND ARE EXPOSED TO MANIPULATIVE MISINFORMATION HOOKING THEM INTO BEING OVERLY-FASCINATED ABOUT SEX.
    My content: Many suffer from sexual manipulations, and they cannot get away from something which they think to be natural, or instinctive. There is a series of mind manipulations used against the viewer of various sexual presentations.

    Here are the reviews:

    Interesting concept, however it is tough to read – poor grammar throughout November 7, 2011

    By James Ewing – Personal

    Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified PurchaseThe book is an interesting concept, however I struggled so much with the grammatical errors that I put it down after only reading about an hour. It’s a massive book, written with heart but written like a first-run author. His next book or edit to this one may be much better.

    Absolutely Incredible May 23, 2012

    By Reader
    Format:Paperback|Amazon Verified Purchase The grammar is fine, please respect the author. It is the knowledge in this book which is extraordinary and so easily understandable and the way it is written so peacefully and directly, so freely,which makes it outstanding. It has opened my mind and I am able to know and control my mind and have so much knowledge and understanding of how it works which is a great factor to have in life. I haven’t even read a fifth of the book and it has already changed my life and unravelled the truth from the world and many more truths. I recommend this to anybody as it is amazing, not only on sexual fixation, but most importantly, the mind and how it works. It will have tremendous impact on you and your life.

    by the way if you think i am going to go through and write the same thing in a different manner on some other youtube comments I will not. I would reprint this. However since I see that we are dealing with a very limited thinking people or robots guided by people. then I will not repost anything. and only get to hear me . 🙂 lucky you. 🙂 and unlucky so many others. hehehe. as far as being a free social space, it becomes a laugh. when you are controlled , limited and well it basically is robbing yourself of being able to freely express yourself. AND THAT IS WHY IT IS NOT REALLY SOCIAL MEDIA. IT IS LIMITING. IT IS NOT EXPANDING. IT IS NOTHING LIKE LIFE. AND NO ONE CAN IMITATE LIFE. OH THEY TRY TO IMITATE LIFE. BUT ITS JUST RIDICULOUSLY FUNNY.

    God Bless 🙂
