    Can anyone help me answer this: If I use duplicate content on my website, where I am earning via affiliate with Amazon. If Amazon catch me doing it, will they ban my Affiliate account?

    Also, do you think my site would be accepted into their affiliate program, if it's duplicate content. Wonder if they check up on it.

    Thanks

    Why not do it right and use a unique content? Recently, I have seen people getting banned on amazon for 'unclear content' and the likes. Play it white hat for once and enjoy the overflowing amazon $$$$/

    I would. But English is not my first language, and I am just not a gifted writer. My articles would be awful.

    So I need alot of $ to buy high quality articles. Which I don't have right now

    My plan was to copy n paste many different review sites. And promote them on social media etc.

    @McAndy
    English is not my first language, and am NOT GIFTED with words :D. That is why we have people who can write so fluently and that is why I pay them to write for me.

    You should do the same. It pays to do it right. And sometimes, duplicate content will not allow you to rank on google for your KWs...

    Why don't you outsource? It you find someone writing for 3 bucks and you make 4 bucks from a review, you're still turning a profit.

    Yeah why not outsource on fivver, the just proofread which you will most likely have to do since the majority of fivver sellers are not english native writers.

    I guess u have no choice but buy articles. u can get artcles for $4 $5 even here at bhw. Doesnt have to be hightest quailty. It seems they manually check sites once u get yr first sale.

    Last time I paid 100$ for 10 articles of 1000 words. And the quality was so bad. Useless

    So I ended up not using the articles. Waste of money.
    If buying articles again, I only wanna pay for high quality. And I just don't have the money to build a site right now, when I have to pay about 30-50$ for 1000 word article

    Why didn't you simply refuse them after seeing the first one? I don't think it was wise to buy in bulk from an unknown writer.

    Didn't buy 1 article at a time, but I was stupid and paid 100$ up front for 10 articles.

    This is why sometimes your just better off doing the work yourself cause in the end you end up wasting money but more importantly time.
