    I have a client who is selling on amazon for some very competitive money KW´s. I want to rank his products pages from Amazon on google, too, but am confused how google treats these kind of pages.

    I used 750 blog posts drip feeded from lover´s service on one page. It was not ranking at all, then after 1 week it shoot up to #2, lasted only a few hours and was replaced by another Amazon product page (which is very similar). This happened a few times again in the next days, and now its not ranking at all again, while the competitors site is #2.

    What really confuses me is that there is only 1 Amazon product page on each page of the search results, when you google a money KW. This is not only for this KW, but also for other product KWs in this niche. The same happens with ebay, not a product page though but the search results from ebay.

    It looks to me that g00gle is filtering all Amazon and ebay pages for 1 product KW. This makes sense, since the most pages are very similar in the title, the description and they come all from the same domain.

    Another thing I noticed is that not all product pages are indexed, even if many links are build to them. For example, my client added some KWs to the URL of his page: http://www.amazon.com/product-title&keywords=1+2+3 and this is the URL I used for the link service. I added this page twice to a premium indexing service, 100 links are already build but it still is not indexed. The page that ranked for a short time was the original URL minus the KWs, so I think the URL with KWs is working like a redirect.

    So whats your experience with ranking an Amazon page and getting them indexed? Is it really the case that only one A. product page can rank in the search results?

    I feel you, it does appear that Google picks the best page for the product to rank and that may not necessarily be the one you may be building links to.

    Its first time i rank an A. product page, but all I have read about it is that you can go ape shit on them. Sure they cant be tanked, but my clients pages are not ranking at all and he wants a fast ranking, so doing an agressive link building is the only way to go imo. Of course i use a different strategy on his e-commerce shop.

    Btw, there are not 750 links on the page but around 250, since they are dripdfeed around 25 links per day . i dont consider that too much.

    You know that Amazon is a parasite, right? It seems like you dont understand the difference between ranking a parasite page or ranking a usual web page.


    Thank you for your excellent advice! I will think about it when I am in my office.

    So you are one of those kind of people who thinks he knows all about someone just by reading 1 or 2 posts of him? You surely must very mature and objective.

    I provide SEO for more than a year to clients, and there is a reason why I ranked everyone of my clients in the top5 for several KWs, never tanked a clients site and never had an unsatisfied customer.

    Like I said, I dont have experience with ranking Amazon pages, so i want to test out different linkbuilding strategies on different pages in thie niche. And my clients knows and agrees to that as well as the fact that some of the pages may be tanked. And you know what? He doesnt care if 1 or 2 pages are tanked because he has hundreds of products on Amazon so he just chooses the same product in a different colour for the next campaign. Also, none of his pages ranked before, so if a page is tanked, he doesnt loose any rankings. Besides, Im ranking his website pretty well and he gains much more profit from it than he pays me, so even now he is a satisfied customer.

    So next time do yourself a favor and dont judge someone if you dont know anything about them. Also keep your moral "OMG its a shame blablabla" for yourself, because again, you dont know nothing about me or my business.

    Thats my last reply to you because i dont want to waste anymore time.


    EDIT I just saw that the product page from the OP ranks #3 when you type in "product color" (high competition). So much for your certainty that the page MUST be tanked

    I think seo on page is also very important for amazon products
    Have titles and descriptions unique?

    So you've started building links to it less than two weeks ago? I'd say give it some more time and diversify your link profile.
    I've been building a whole bunch of different parasites over the last couple of weeks (no amazon product pages though) and a lot of them take up to a month to get to where they need to be.

    The service u used has gotten quite a lot of praise but in my experience it didn't do much by itself, but alongside some other types of links you might get much better results. One thing that seems to make quite a difference for me when ranking parasites so far is social signals, so maybe dripfeed a bunch of these (twitter, fb, pinterest, ...) over the next couple of days/weeks.

    Paulie. Any improvements on this one? Did it get indexed after a month. Currently doing a GSA campaign to a client of mine in a not so competitive niche (150-200 links/day) I hope that's not too much, though.

    This is what I do for my local ecommerce start-ups and I've literally ranked dozens of amazon product pages. Onpage SEO is pretty huge with Amazon and yes, product pages can take one hell of a beating. Use the classic 3 tiered PR3+ <- PR1+ <- SPAM GSA blueprint targeting branded anchors to build up link juice, then whack it with some erm, heavier links targeting your main keywords.

    I don't know if my experience will help you, but I was creating Twitter accounts to rank for specific keywords in my niche. I was having great success with that. To the point where I would have 3 Twitter accounts ranking 1, 2 and 3 respectively. I was killing the competition to the point where my competition was trying to duplicate my success. Long story short - all my Twitter accounts are off of the 1st page with the exception of the oldest Twitter accounts. Similar to what you're saying about filtering for 1 product KW. Could your client's competitor have an older Amazon product page? Is Google filtering based on age of these parasites?
