    Hi Aaron and Kate. This was an extremely helpful podcast and has given me some things to think about. I’m interested to know your thoughts on 1) leaving brand names out of product descriptions if you are a re-seller and worried the business may go elsewhere 2) if you’ve already asked once for a review (with links to make it easy), and it hasn’t been done, can I do anything else? 3) how do I see if I have duplicate meta data? Many thanks again.

      1) I’d experiment, but yes will be hard to compete on the brand so resellers need to be inventive.
      2) Ask again, I always ask 3 time at intervals. But also potentially do some kind of incentive – a subtle one.

    Great podcast thanks, Kate and Aaron. Really good point about the category pages and how they’re likely to stay while products come and go. I am guilty of just having a list of products on mine!
