Amazon Helps Amazon Advertising Business To Succeed | Amazon's Crackdown on Fake Reviews.

Key Points:

  • Amazon, one of the world's largest online marketplaces, witnessed a significant challenge to its credibility by the rise of fake reviews causing concern among customers and businesses.
  • In response, Amazon has continued to combat fake reviews, explicitly targeting "fake review brokers" who sell fake reviews to sellers for a fee.
  • Fake review crackdown includes lawsuits against more than 1,000 defendants, sending cease and desist letters, and suspending accounts of those who violate Amazon's policies.
  • Amazon's goal is to "eliminate vendor incentives to engage in review abuse and dismantle this ecosystem around the exchange of phony reviews for money," as stated by Amazon in a blog post.

Deep Insights: 

According to the company, fake reviews are not just unethical, but they can also damage a business's reputation and sales. Customers rely on reviews to make informed purchasing decisions; if those reviews are fake, it can lead to disappointment and distrust. By eliminating fake reviews, Amazon provides customers with reliable information about the goods they purchase and maintains trust and credibility on the platform.

To maintain the integrity of its platform, Amazon has a strict policy against false reviews and employs over 12,000 staff globally who utilize advanced technology to detect and prevent fraudulent activity. As a result, over 99% of products on Amazon's platform have genuine reviews. Furthermore, Amazon is taking legal measures to combat this issue by targeting the root cause and delivering a strong message that fraudulent individuals will be held responsible.

David Montague, Amazon's Vice President of Selling Partner Risk, expressed the company's goal to ensure that Amazon customers have a sense of trust and confidence when shopping by providing genuine and dependable reviews.
