    It is a strange thing.

    I have like 10 different accounts with Amazon. All accounts can write product reviews fine but when I vote on a review:
    "Was this review helpful? Yes/No"

    Only one of my vote counts. It doesn't matter how many times I vote with all my other accounts.

    I've tried using different IP address (hide-my-ip), anonym.to and incognito chrome browser.

    Amazon seems to know that I am voting twice and they are not counting my vote.

    Any advice?

    Thanks! :)

    amazon checks more than your IP when you vote. When you use the same computer, you may change your IP address but when you do not change the machine's MAC address, amazon will catch you. But it may also be that amazon already figured out a pattern between your accounts and will accept only one vote per ASIN.
