I’ve spent the last six months or so actively trying to improve my Amazon Reviewer ranking.
This means I’ve been writing reviews on the books, music, tv shows and to a lesser extent other products I’ve been purchasing. You can find a list of my reviews here – take a look and if you agree with any of them please do mark a helpful vote.
Part of the reason for doing this was to be a bit less passive in my consumption, part of it was to try and work out a bit more about the way the weird and sometimes wonderful way Amazon’s reviewing algorithms work.
While I can’t say I’ve discovered anything definitive, I have found out a few interesting things around:
- Amazon’s ‘rules’
- How to get more helpful votes on a review
- What it means for reviewers when they get those reviews
- Whether there are any benefits to writing reviews on Amazon – either as a reader/ viewer or as a writer.
It’s quite a chunky report, but if you’re a writer or, indeed, a reader you might find some things of interest in there.
To get a free copy of it, just send me a message via the CONTACT form and I’ll email you your very own pdf of the report.
And if you don’t want a copy of the report but just want to see my reviews – just click here and please leave a helpful vote if you find anything…helpful.
