Ranking and Rating Book Reviews on Amazon

Amazon.com ranks its book reviewers based on the opinions of their customers. Each time someone indicates that a customer review was helpful or not, they use that vote, along with votes from other customers, to determine how helpful a review is.

A reviewer's rank is determined by the overall helpfulness of all their reviews, factoring in the number of reviews they have written. It helps your book and those who have reviewed your book when you give a rating regarding how helpful the review is to you.

Let's go to Amazon and start ranking and rating each other's book reviews. Here is a link to one of my books to get you started. That wasy you don't have to search all over Amazon to learn what I'm referring to: http://tinyurl.com/MTMTEbook.

This is good information. A friend tried to post a review of my recent book and it never was posted. Do you know what the new rules are for posting Amazon reviews?

You are the second person I heard say that this week. I wonder what is up with Amazon reviews. I'll see what I can find out, Amber.
