To Clarify My Earlier Post on Amazon Tags

Just to be clear, you can still go to the main Amazon search bar and type in the word breastfeeding. This will take you to a big list of breastfeeding books. So customers aren’t at a total loss.
But the beauty of a tag is that it enables you to find other products that people have similarly tagged. For example, if I click on my tag “lactation,” Amazon brings me to books, bras, tea and nursing pads. These are items that other customers have tagged with the word lactation.

Amazon Won’t Let Me Use the Word BreastFeed as a Tag For My Book

Bookmark and Share

I’ve been having an odd problem with Amazon lately. The page where my book Mama Knows Breast is sold has a space where you can create “tags” for the book. These words help people find books that they might find useful.
I was able to create a whole series of tags related to my book. Words like “nursing,” “lactation,” “baby gift” worked. But there are certain tags Amazon simply won’t let me create. I can’t create a tag that says “breast feeding” or “breastfeeding” or “breast-feeding.” Other variations that won’t work: breastfed, breast fed, breast-fed, breast feed, breastfeed or breast-feed. You get the idea. Even simply, “breast” won’t work. Elisabeth Squires, author of the new book “bOObs: A Guide to Your Girls” told me Amazon won’t let her use the tag “boob.”
I imagine this is some sort of super duper anti-porn spam filter at work here. But it’s quite silly given the subject matter of the book. I’ve tried to contact Amazon customer service through the website a few times and haven’t gotten a response.
Does anyone have any suggestions? How can we get Amazon to wake up and smell the coffee?
