Amazon sponsored links

I used to receive significantly more traffic from Amazon sponsored links but it has dropped significantly. I continue to see competitors being shown in the same advertising spots, and it doesn't seem to matter how much I raise my CPC. Does anyone know exactly what has been changed?

Hi,

 

Raising CPC is not the only metric to increase ad rank for a certain placement. Your competitors must be outdoing you on the overall adrank. Though, there's no direct method to target Amazon from AdWords, there are workarounds. 

 

I remember @AdWiser  came up with some great workarounds in a similar thread. You should read it thoroughly for a better idea. 

 

Here's the thread https://www.en.adwords-community.com/t5/Advanced-Features/Amazon-sponsored-link/m-p/421035#M41095

 

Hope it helps.

 

Thanks

I read that discussion, and I'm not sure it applies. I own a book website and am advertising by ISBN. For example, the keyword "9781904994879" shows sponsored links on amazon, but I do not have a single impression despite a high bid and an 8/10 quality score. Is it possible that they are just no longer using google?

Yes, may be or may not be. 

 

There's no official information from Google about Amazon being the Search Partner.

 

Thanks
