just had an email regarding Amazon new TOS regarding the 'Super URL' which has effectively banned it if I'm not mistaken?
We are writing all sellers to let them know that Snagshout will no longer automatically generate Super URLs to remain compliant with Amazon’s new Terms of Service
As mentioned in a today's blog post, Amazon updated its Terms of Service (TOS) to include specific terminology stating that sellers “may not intentionally manipulate your products' rankings.” Snagshout believes that the use of Super URLs is likely to be considered a manipulation, and may lead to a policy violation from Amazon Seller Performance. Therefore, we will not longer be generating these links in our system.
Effective at the end of today, August 26, 2015, Snagshout URLs to Amazon will generate a regular, static link that takes shoppers to the product detail page on Amazon without including keywords or anything that might look like a Super URL.
The Super URL was created about a year ago as a tool to manipulate the Amazon system into believing the shopper had searched for a keyword to discover a product. This technique has been highly successful for many shoppers. As a result of its success, numerous tools and courses have been developed showing users how to use this tactic. Amazon has been acutely clear in its latest Terms of Service update that this practice is now violation. We highly recommend to all of our users to stop using Super URL services as they could place your account at risk.
If you have question please join us for a Webinar and Q&A session on these updates this Friday, August 28th, at 2 p.m. EDT or feel free to contact Snagshout support at [email protected]
