Quick question, would G penalize my site for copying amazon product descriptions/reviews?
You need Unique content to make G love you!! Why do you think there is only 1 % of people making all the money in IM ? Because it is either hard work to make Unique Content or it is Expensive.
Unique content is key in good rankings. So why not copy the amazon reviews, sping them, and paste these to your website. Or if you don´t have the money for a spinner subscription, simply rewrite the artciles into a unique version. I know it´s time consuming but you will be save for the long run.
You can do a print screen to the reviews you like and put them as images on your site. Tons of people do that. Pretty easy !
Hmm, that's not a bad idea. Thanks
So you think goole can't read images in a text ? Googlebot has OCR recognition so it's the same it will be considered as a duplicate content. Google Bot can read text inside an Image
I wouldn't copy them word for word.
Sometimes in a review I'll mention some of the positive and negative points about a product from it's users.
I always assume that much of my traffic has probably already read those same amazon reviews as I don't always outrank amazon on all keywords so duplicating the same content won't matter anyway.
A screenshot as mentioned above is a great idea s well.
LMAO yeah Google is going to use OCR on every website.
Good luck. The bigger problem would be Amazon finding out you are stealing their user reviews.
As the one user pointed out, a screenshot of the reviews will reduce the risk of duplicate content & Amazon catching you as easy.
Maybe not on the first Crawl, maybe not on the second, but one day or another Boom ---> duplicate . And then OP posting new thread on google's a bitch etc etc.
What i do is to rewrite them and add them as fake comments/feedback. Never tried the images trick, do it at your own risk but a lot of websites are using them.
Just rewrite them if you must
i will suggest you, you should be use unique content because unique content help to fast indexing and ranking your site,if you can't use unique content so you can use rewrite content,you can also use amazon products image.another best option hire content writer.
If you are trying to add the user reviews for usability, Amazon allows you to place certain number of user reviews inside an iframe. You need to use their API to retrieve this. If you are using wordpress there are plugins to do this including auto blogging plugins like wpzonbuilder.
However if you trying to add more spider food, then amazon user reviews won't help you much.
If you don't want to waste your time, that's the best idea.
Yes, G will slap you for duplicate content. You need to rewrite them to get benefit from G. Image trick should not be followed, I think.
It wouldnt penalize you unless all posts or most posts on the site are copied from amazon. It would just not ever rank you though.
