If you use an Amazon Kindle or one it its supporting applications on a tablet or smartphone you are sure to have noticed the increase in low quality and duplicate content trying to cash in on the surge in popularity with e-Books, which has appeared in the Kindle e-Book Store over the past months.
The low quality e-Books and duplicate content have been repackaged in a flood of e-Books under a retail concept known as “private label rights,” or P.L.R. The surge of this kind of e-Book has always been a concern for Amazon as it will certainly damage the quality associated to their Kindle Store.
But as of this week Amazon has now started to tackle the problem and cracked down on a number of “Publishers” removing low quality and duplicate content.
Amazon spokeswoman, Brittany Turner explains:
“We have worked steadily to build processes to detect and remove undifferentiated or barely differentiated versions of e-books.”
Lets hope the new changes by Amazon will now make it easier to find quality content on the subjects users are interested in.
