    at http://www.webmasterworld.com there is a thread started where someone is questioning GoogleGuy, asking if they are going into affiliate marketing and asking what's the deal. Go there and check it out. So far they are saying the affiliate links are NOT Google, not for sure yet.

    GoogleGuy said
    They don't add any affiliate links. That they are not doing that. That they don't charge any fees, or give any preferential treatment in search results.

    Time will tell.

    Sales are everywhere, Sales are mine.

    If Google gets this right I don't see much future for traffic filter affiliates.

    Hey, it's just a question of adapting. There will always be room for us, it's just up to us to define it, evolve it. We'll be okay!

    According to WordTracker, Google gets something like 35% of searches netwide.

    If Google figures out how to sell stuff, then we'll just need to concentrate on the OTHER 65% of searches that happen on the Net (the ones that do NOT come through Google).

    Although I'm not too worried. Yahoo has a store too, and MSN has lots of shopping ads--and yet searches (and sales) manage to come into my sites from those sources, despite the deep-pocketed competition being right there! Even though there may be a sales dropoff (for affiliates), I would expect that a decent number of people will continue to use the regular listings like they do at the other SEs and that sales won't be totally killed by a Google shopping search.

    I agree, this will not kill affiliate marketing. People will still be searching, or coming in from other websites...
