    Hey My Peeps (jk),

    I have just about finished my Wordpress Amazon affiliate blog using WPZonBuilder. I'm assuming that in order to get decent rankings in the search engines, in addition to building links, that I'll need unique content on my Amazon product pages. The problem I have come across is the wording of their TOS regarding adding content to their product pages. Here is what it says:

    "8. You will not add to, delete from, or otherwise alter any Content in any way, including by adding additional information (e.g., you may not insert words into a customer review), except that you may resize Content consisting of a graphic image in a manner that maintains the original proportions of the image or truncate Content consisting of text in a manner that does not materially alter the meaning of the text or cause the text to become factually incorrect or misleading."

    I find it hard to believe that I can't post my own content in addition to what is already being listed on that page, however, I don't want to do anything to jeopardize my account standing. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Doesn't say you can't post your own, just says you can't muck about with what they put up.

    Yeah, but it says "You will not add to . . . or otherwise alter any Content in any way, including by adding additional information (e.g., you may not insert words into a customer review)," - Wouldn't this example of inserting words into a customer review be the same thing as inserting words into a product description?
