    Hi, Saleh here.

    For about last one year, Amazon affiliate sites had been facing massive ranking drops along with traffic and earnings.

    Starting with Medic Update in Aug'18, it kept continuing till date. Though some of them recovered in the September update. But the whole scenario is still the same- google's not liking sites anymore that are built solely for earning affiliate commisions.

    According to my first-hand experience-
    • No more 'review-only' websites will earn SERP position as it could before 2018.
    • Informative blogposts is what we all should focus on.
    • Instead of backlinks, topical authority is the key to success now.
    • As always, well-optimized, well-written and well-formated content is the king.
    • Aggressive SEO won't work anymore.
    What do you think on these? Or any idea on what's going on, maybe?

    yep, you are right. This is the white hat way to do it. But blackhat methods will continue to work as always :) Smart SEOs will always be able to manipulate the "game".

    yes that correct 100%

    any niche related to the health and buauity are in shit street .

    all afflicates are getting punished .

    not sure but i think it a political problam with google and goverments , behind the scenes ..

    i state that as true becouse from time to time your see news reports of bad pills and counterfeit bueity products bought online ...

    i suspect the run upto xmas has also made importing problams of fake health and baughty fake products imports online sale have exploded accoss countrys , but these fake goods deemed to be dangrous .

    i am 100% sure governments from all countrys are involed in the stopping of health and baughty websites indexed in google not authortie aproved...

    my opioion only

    i say this becouse if you right know become a afflicate of a health product that legal like a heigh street big name , your will not get punished , but if your a afflicate of a non aproved goverment product your get punished gurenteed ....

    so there is talks behind the scenes on fake and caterfiet goods with afflicates products deemed as dagrous from non authertiees cheeked items.

    google has been defenly warned in afflicate health and buauty unlicenced products.....

    only my opioion nothink else make sence otherwise to me....

    it the only thing that comes to mind that can cause such a penalty ban on specific niches.

    Ha ha....right you are.
    Manipulating google's traffic with made up reviews and make amazon richer? Well, Big G seems not to like it anymore. Maybe that's the reason. Finger crossed!
