    Amazon cheating its affiliates.
    I had a few links on my sites of amazon which I deleted today, because I found Google ads all over Amazon site.
    Affiliates send Amazon valued visitors, some visitors clicks on google ads, Amazon gets money, affiliate gets nothing and loss of sales.

    Sorry i have to say, Only dumb affiliates will be promoting them now.

    Google and Amazon have been getting VERY COZY lately. Something smells to me as well...

    I do wonder why Amazon would find it necessary to splash AdSense on its site.

    They make out like bandits on my client's high conversion Amazon Shops as they get 15% of each sale. No need for Adwords ever at Amazon unless Google buys them.

    Question
    are the adsense ads showing on the results of affiliate links in? the technology to block that from happening has been around for a long time.
