    Go to a site, use the Alexa toolbar to see it's details and there's a link there to submit a Review of the site to Amazon.

    Anyone have their friends drop a review into Amazon, via Alexa, concerning their aff sites?

    Worthwhile? Guess it's like spamming a blog... but I mean just one review by a friend who has actually used your aff site...

    The review shows up in Amazon, not Alexa (Alexa's just an easy path to the Amazon's review section for any site).

    And while I agree that they Amazon reviews are not golden inbound links, seems to me it'd be a 5 minute time investment for an inbound link from Amazon. And since few others would likely submit a review behind it (unlike blogs), the review would stay on top / remain visible for indexing.

    Not a great tip or idea, but I wondered if...

    I consult with B2B companies as well - a competing consultant I know always has the company submit 3-4 reviews in Amazon as I've mentioned here. Most of the companies we serve sell software that's listed within Amazon though, and I see the sense in it.

    I don't like the deception of a self-crafted review - so I don't recommend it. BUT if a friend (or visitor to my sites) genuinely found my site helpful, I was considering asking them to take a few minutes to submit a review for it.

    Anyone else think this is a worthwhile investment / technique for the short time it takes to complete? I'm thinking 1-2 reviews wouldn't hurt anything...

    Your thoughts?

    Go to the public library and use their computers and review your own site. Nothing like a nom de plume and a literary license.
