    Hi, I am using Woozone Amazon Affiliate Plugin.

    I loaded about 800 items from the amazon store on my website with the Plugin. Should I spin the content? Am I going to be penalized for the copied product description that I took from Amazon for those 800 items?

    It is a niche that I must have a large amount of products, because of the variations. But due to the information on those product's descriptions the spinner doesn't really work.

    So I'd basically have to spin 800 descriptions by hand. Am I going to be penalized if I just leave it as it is?

    Thank you

    i would never buy anything form the website that has got spun content.

    i would concentrate on few products and write really good eye catching reviews

    I don't think it's a good idea to spin money site content. But you can just rewrite the Amazon descriptions. Just change words and sentences, make it unique.

    Thank you guys. But what about google?

    Those 800 product descriptions are essentially copied, right? Am I going to be penalized if I don't change that content?

    Hi, can anyone help me? I just want to know if google or amazon would punish me for having those 800 items on my website. I will not spin it. Will google punish me because the descriptions are the exact same on amazon.com? Will amazon punish me because I have too many items?

    even if google will not punish you, how you want to rank a website with duplicate content?
