Adult Flag Warning

Now, when one of your products is flagged as "adult" by Amazon the system will place a warning next to the parent's product title that reads as followed:

  • One or more children's ASINs have been marked as "Adult" by Amazon and will not rank for its keywords.

When you open the list of children you’ll see the child ASIN marked:

  • This product has been marked as Adult by Amazon and will not rank for its keywords.

If you want to know why your products are marked with an adult flag please contact Amazon support, there can be reasons involving products category not being correctly used, but each case can be very specific.

Being flagged as "adult" significantly reduces your exposure in search results.
