    What are some black hat SEO tactics people are using to rank their products in Amazon? Fake sales, driving traffic from outside Amazon etc.


    Looks like Hamilton Healthcare selling fish oil might be an example (try typing 'fish oil' in Amazon). These guys are ranking on First Page for fish oil (a major keyword and they ranked really quickly after launch) and are FBM not FBA. Also small number of reviews. Possibly up to something?

    Thats quick, too quick I would say. Right, they have some authority (73 products, plenty of reviews..). I got their BSR data and I see they were pushing fish oil sales since product launched. There are more variables involved. It would be great to hear from other experienced members as well.

    Looking at product B00XPQNE8G, it appears that they purchased reviews. The only verified buyer is the one that gave 3 stars and the others aren't written by native English speakers. i.e. "the others just the consumption and the breath I smell unpleasant fishy"

    Reviews are not the fact. Fake sales may harm your SA. They surely apply WL, SL, GI, GL, A2C, A2C(gi), SAdCI like SEO method. You can apply that for your product. Best Regards
