    I just noticed this new section on their frontpage tonight.

    Search or read your favorite catalogs using Google.

    It's been around for a while now.
    Let's hope that they never promote it, or mix those results into searches.
    We'd all be out of a job then.

    This is Marifer from We have been monitoring the Google Catalog experiment for about a year. They used to have the link to the catalog page on Google's main page but they have taking it off and is a little hard for a user to find it. We deal with the same cataloguers most of which don't know their catalogs have been scanned and publish by Google. I know that the ones who know about this are not happy at Google's scanning their catalogs without their permission and have threaten to sue them. Still, we found that their experiment has not posed a threat to and our affiliate program (we pay up to .75 per catalog request- All catalogs are free). Please keep in mind that Google does not have agreements/right to publish the catalogs they have up there.

    This might become a threat if the word gets spread around and Google decides to promote their mini site and charge the catalog companies. I am requesting from all members of the affiliate community not to promote Google's catalog site but rather promote

    Please let me know your thoughts about this topic- is greatly appreciated.
