I'm sure searchers would rather like to visit the manufacturers website, who also sells retail and supports the products, instead of Amazon. The main reason why these business owners choose not to pull the plug on Amazon is because Google gives Amazon preferential ranks while the client sites can go from page 1 to page 20 the next day and back to page 5 a day later. If they stopped selling their products on Amazon, their listings on Amazon would remain for years and state "out of stock," "currently unavailable," or any other term used to describe a product they are holding hostage. And not surprisingly, those out of stock Amazon products still rank really well years after the manufacturers have discontinued selling their products on Amazon.
In fact many items on Amazon are widgets with low Quality but set on top of brand names. Cutomers will for sure not regocnize that they have been buyed a fake widget. But this is the new Quality!
Bak to serps:
Next big changes. Next big loss for our main site. But our unattended affiliate site cpoied description from manufacturer ( copied 100000 times ) got a boost again. I think if you are other than mainstream ( and Mainstream is copying manufacturer description ) you look spammy to Google.Al the work, Pictures, self written descriptions are down the drain again. But Amazon and a certain Price compare site are doing 20-30 positions in a row. No Variation ins serps.
Please give us back our old Google, do not put 20 times the Domain in a row.
