Choose your link text wisely – It’s normal for people to link back to your website with link text that is simply your domain name (ex: http://mywebsite.com ). You should ask them to occasionally change the link text to the keywords that you want to rank for on the search engines. For example if you want to rank for “cheap widget” then your link text should be “cheap widget”.
As for ProductTestingUSA.com, I did some research and found out it’s a scam. They take your info and sell it to companies that will spam you with offers and junk up your email box. Be careful with that website!
You actually can narrow your options on Amazon to show only reviews from the specific version you have selected. When you go into ‘show all reviews’, there’s a series of drop down boxes to filter by reviewers (all / verified purchasers), star ratings, and formats (all / this specific version only).
Missed that. I’m glad FakeSpot is using that investigation technique. I find it just as effective as checking the product’s review dates. To me, they go hand in hand. Unfortunately TheWireCutter neglects to mention that method in their “How We Spot a Phony Review”.
Passive is the way I play it. I filled out my profile’s “About Me” and “Interests” sections to show what I do for a living and what I like. It’s passive because it doesn’t say anything about me accepting free products to review, but there is enough info about me to know whether the supplier will feel I am a good match. Plus, I choose this method right now because I get enough requests to try products.
To recommend your products, I need to know you can appreciate the fact ethically I have limits I’m not willing to break, regardless of the fact Amazon has specifically banned this practice and my doing what you ask could get us both in trouble. Honestly, I have a feeling that eventually, someone you send this to will report you.
Hi Megan,Very interesting article. I have only had time to peruse it, I will digest it later when time permits. However,my problem is how to get that first virgin Amazon review. I purchased hard copies of my book, handed someout and mailed others. One recipient tried to write a review on Amazon, but was politely told he didn’t buy thebook from them, so they wouldn’t accept his review.I have written to a few reviewers, but didn’t get a reply.How do I get the mark?Sincerely yours Michael Conlan

Hi, I’m a reviewer on amazon as well and I just wanted to offer some advice to help some newer reviewer. If you do video demos of the product that you buy or receive for reviews and include pictures, sellers would be more incline to select you or reach out to you to review their product. Also breaking up your review in paragraphs or doing a pros and cons is great, and what I do is do a summery paragraph at the end and include in that other possible uses in such.
KabelDireckt is open to the U.S. marketplace and several European marketplaces. Like EtekCitizen, the product offerings here are for only one brand, KabelDireckt. Their catalog is very slim as they specialize in computer cables. If you want to try one for free and are willing to write a review, this can be a good option to save a few bucks.
Thanks for the update, James. You are correct. This is now against Amazon’s TOS, however, it’s still encouraged to leave a review. We highly recommend this as well, as sometimes sellers will only give discounts to shoppers who have strong seller profiles.
Most review sites allow the sellers to check out the viewers and approve or disapprove them. I have made a database of the reviewers and make sure I do not send two coupons for the same product to the same person. Most sellers on Amazon are struggling and thefts like this can bring us down completely. I have nothing personal against AmzRC and its owner Andy, but unfortunately he is facilitating this theft and is not willing to rectify it. I just want to warn other sellers before they get burned like me. Andy does not care. Amazon does not care. It is your responsibility to care about yourself.
You can always list your interests and devices on your Amazon Profile page, but as you know that is not where they are initially looking. (In case you don’t know, most suppliers find reviewers manually by finding a competing product on Amazon, looking at the recent reviews and checking out their profiles for contact info.)
When they DELIBERATELY AND WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THE ENSUING CONSEQUENCES eliminated their 20–word minimum rule for product reviews, this opened up the floodgates for the cheats to post MILLIONS of fake product reviews.
Yeah if you Google anything about “product testing” I’ll always come up on the top of search list since I’m very knowledgeable about it and it is my passion. I’ve helped people all over the country to find ways to make extra money from home and join product testing. It’s a great feeling to know that I help make a difference in people lives and spreading the truth about free ways to earn extra money.
Since Amazon is famous for its extensive line of products, their low prices, and great convenience, this news put their customer’s trust, one of Amazon’s core assets, on the line. They needed to fix this, or else, their business would be affected.

Dealgogogo is more like the combined pros of Snagshout and AmzReviewtrader. With strong connection with manufactories, the site is designed to benefit shopper/reviewer, focusing on shopper/reviewer experience and meanwhile trust reviewer will do the review as promised.
The best way to frame the review is by highlighting the value your product adds to your customer’s life. Once you frame the review this way, you can ask them to share their experience with the rest of the world.

“I find I can get relatively good rates using the prime member free 2 day shipping (for cost of membership which has gone up a lot for monthly subscription). I appreciate their movies that I can view included in the prime, love using alexa with their echo, easy to order for my kindle fire and audible books ( sales on audible has gone up), I do book share and relatively good customer service, not the worst, as I have been able to get through to customer service and they do try hard to please me or work with me, just disappointed that the monthly membership went up to $12.99 from $10.99 but the annual is still the same price and I am considering doing that instead in the future just hard for me to budget for it.
Dollar club sometimes offers expensive products for $1 If you know of a real good site, do let me know. Remember that if you tell me because you are promoting your site, be sure to get a bad review if it sucks and or nothing on the site.
— “every free thing I have asked to review has charged me on amazon when I put in the code” Ok, that isn’t supposed to happen. I have only had less than 10 “free” coupons end up not being free (see Facebook post here for help with this).
I bought Spore and Spore Galactic Adventures on a whim when I saw some gameplay of the Spore by Nerdcubed. Normally, I have a very quick turn over rate with games but Spore has still has my attention over a month later, which hasn’t happened with a game for years. There are only a few points that I would like to emphasis and explain who these effect.
they have never given me the opportunity, though there was only 1 time that they said that they would send me a product to test, but they didn’t say that i would get any points or anything for it, nor be able to test other products. like you, i want to test products. however, i not looking for the products, but to get paid for doing it.
The industry’s number one feedback software for Amazon merchants now also simplifies the management of product reviews in a direct, user-friendly way. FeedbackFive has given you the ability to solicit product reviews for several years, but the process involved several steps to create the appropriate email template and rules. When we introduced Email Campaigns in September, we gave you a campaign and template specifically geared to help you get more Amazon reviews.
This is a fairly new review club with a large marketplace of products in a very wide range of categories from small electronics, household goods, kitchen items, arts and crafts, sewing, pet supplies and a lot more. Available for reviewers in the USA.
As an editor, I want to caution you that Grammarly (or any spell check program) is not perfect. It will often correct mistakes that aren’t mistakes. (One I see often is the words it’s and it’s.) It’s a nice tool, but never a substitute for a human editor who knows the rules. It might be cheaper, as well as catching things Grammarly might not (such as awkward sentences, repeating the same word several times in a short space), to hire an editor to look over your blogs and online writings.
