Amazon Reviews leave something to be desired

11 Apr

Amazon has a bunch of country-specific sites – .com for the US, for the UK, .ca for Canada, etc. What I don’t understand is why they don’t merge reviews across the domains (especially RE: books). You can literally just change the .ca or to .com in the URL and it loads the US version … with a ton more reviews.

Doesn’t make sense.

Maybe they don’t for duplicate content issues?

Ugh – that is all kinds of wrong (and I don’t mean you are wrong). Amazon should be more concerned about the end-user, not that Google will slap them around. SEO driven or not, it is a terrible end-user decision.
