    Sup folks, first post time here. I'm in the process of creating my first Amazon affiliate site, and have questions about re-using Amazon's product reviews.

    Is it ok to consolidate multiple reviews and then rewrite them in your own voice? The end product would be significantly different from the originals I pulled from, but at some level there will still be a recognizable narrative "flow" that tracks with the source reviews.

    I've read the TOS, and they forbid using reviews. But at some point, they're got to be no longer recognizable with enough rewriting. So how sophisticated is Amazon at identifying content taken from their own reviews?

    I think this is what most people do (summarize and rewrite) when it comes to Amazon reviews. I certainly do and have had no issues thus far. I also look at the product website and other affiliate reviews and they're all similar.

    Hopefully, more experienced members than me (been doing it for a year) will chime in. Good luck with your new website.

    Amazon has started coming down really hard on this suing both the providers and their customers.

    As a result of this abuse Amazon has downgraded their importance.

    I have products top of the charts with 0 reviews.

    Hi... I'm actually running promotion items in my group, here's the run down of it though. I Do not do FAKE reviews, please do not contact me if you are looking for those. I have a review group with 900 reviewers in my group, the reviews will be honest, and unbiased opinions. Meaning if you are not willing to accept bad reviews, which if your product is good you shouldn't have to worry about that... But, never know. They are sole people's opinions, and I will not manipulate. It's similar to the Vine Program, except I own, and admin the group on my own. If you are interested please contact me via PM here, and leave your Skype name, Doesn't matter what the item is, you must be shipping the item as well, and must be genuine product. Please message me if interested in hearing more further. (Pictures, and videos are required in my group of all products, and seller feedback as well.).
