    Amazon products come with longer and longer text, It is becoming absurd. Look at this one:

    PazzPort Mini Wireless Keyboard Touchpad for Htpc (NEW QWERTY LAYOUT, JUST LIKE YOUR HUGE KEYBOARD) NOW WITH LASER POINTER!!! wireless mini keyboard with laser pointerad For Mac!Ipazzport 2.4G! For PLAYSTATION3,Xbox 360,WII - Great for iPad, Home Theater PC (HTPC) and Internet TV,black
    Amazon Price: $24.80

    If you add 10 Amazon products to a page with similar descriptions you could be adding up to 500 words of what is effectively copied text to a page. Not great.

    Is there some way we could delete these descriptions and add our own?

    Those are the titles pulled from the Amazon feed.  You won't be able to edit those unless you are the product vendor on the Amazon site.  Products don't actually have descriptions until you add them.

    Take a closer look at the Amazon capsule.

    Relache,thanks for your reply but I am aware that we can't edit these descriptions. That is the problem. Ideally, that text from the feed would be an option we could switch on or off- while retaining current price,

    The length of these descriptions seems to grow every month and it is getting difficult to include products burdened with them. It is  easy to get a Google slap if you repeat too much stuff- this makes writing your own descriptions difficult. Also as I say, it is all copied text and not helpful in the SERPS.

    It also makes pages ugly.

      It is a problem that may have to be brought up with amazon itself I think.

    You are probably right, Multiman.

    Amazon should put a word limit on the descriptions. Or perhaps Hubpages could do something to take only the first ten or so words.

    I agree that it would help SEO-wise, but also for occasional readability.

    HubPages can choose what it displays when it pulls data from Amazon.

    Being able to edit descriptions or title could be really good.
