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

        1. Aya Katz profile image83
          Aya Katzposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          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

      1. Susana S profile image95
        Susana Sposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        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 image83
          Aya Katzposted 7 years agoin 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".

            Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            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

              Susana Sposted 7 years agoin reply to this

              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
