    Traditional Website and Amazon Product Page SEO


    We manufacture toys. Other people sell our products in stores and online. We also sell our items online and we usually come up on top or near the top of google searches for our products.

    We are now listing our items for sale on Amazon. (most of the products are already there sold by others who buy it from us)

    Here is my question: We like our product descriptions on our website. Will it affect our website's strong seo ranking if we use the same product descriptions on the Amazon product page?

    (Right now, a lot of people did that already with our products. They often do it when they offer our items on their websites, too.)

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Gary

    i think you should change some content in your description,
    because if your content is unique then you never face any type of duplicate content issue.

    Hey Gary,

    Yes it will likely affect the rankings of your site. When Google finds duplicated content it must make a decision as to which page is the original. Amazon.com is one of the most authoritative web sites on the internet right now, therefore Google would likely pick Amazon over any other site when there is duplicated content.

    I would advise changing the content so it is not duplicated.

    Hi Gary,

    If you want to rank both websites on SERPs, you need to change your product descriptions a bit. They should be unique because like what JoeHall mentioned, Google will detect this and will only rank one site (based from which whoever is original and whoever has good reputation online).
