To All My Friends and Followers: Please "like" Ping & the Snirkelly

    People" on Amazon!

    I have been preparing for the publication of my children's chapter book, "Ping & the Snirkelly People" for months now. Yesterday it came out on Amazon. There is only one Facebook "like" on that page now -- and it's mine. That's pathetic!

    My marketing plan always factored Hubpages traffic into the equation. The Google algorithm change has really hit me hard at a bad time. I have been active on HP and have kept publishing new Hubs, but this morning I had only 87 hits from Google to my HP account.

    Please help me out. I supposedly have 851 followers on HP. If each of you could find it in your heart to "like" the Amazon sales page for "Ping & the Snirkelly People" it might make a big difference.

    HP links have been devalued. Facebook likes are now the currency of the moment!

    Please help!

          Snakebaby, thanks so much. It means a lot!

          The Google algo change is a real disappointment. I hope they change their minds about HP.

    I tried to like but couldn't because I haven't bought anything with my amazon.com account, so I shared instead smile

        You're welcome and be sure to tell me when they show up on amazon.co.uk and I'll like them for you and even write a positive review if I can smile

          Thanks, Susana! It takes a while for them to show up on Amazon.co.uk. So far I have only one children's book listed there, and it is a very short verse piece for preschoolers:

          http://www.amazon.co.uk/Case-Theres-Fox … amp;sr=8-2

          If you are interested in reviewing it, drop me a line and I will send you a URL where you can download a pdf file.

      You don't need to buy anything to like it. I just did it. You do need a facebook account to like it though

        When I clicked like, it said you can only like if you have used this account to make a purchase from amazon.com.

        1. Aya Katz profile image88
          Aya Katzposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          I think you're right, Susana. You need both a FB account, and an Amazon.com account that you have used for some purchase at least once in order to complete the "like".

            That's weird. Because I've not purchased anything through my Amazon account, and was able to like your link. So, I am not sure what is up with that.

            And, yes, I even double checked my "like", and on Amazon, it said that "you"(meaning me) and 6 other people like this item. wink

              Don't want to be picky, but I just copied this directly from the from the pop up:

              You and 6 other customers like this.
              Telling us what you like can improve your shopping experience.
              Note: For your like to be added to the total, you must have made a purchase with this account.

              roll
