Google not cashing-in on Amazon linking?
In my ever-vigilant interest in making sure that Google has covered all the funding streams it can ;-) , it seems to me that it is missing an important one: whenever I search Google and there is a link to a book on Amazon, the URL does not seem to have an Amazon associates ID. Why isn't Google an Amazon Associate member, cashing-in on the click-throughs to Amazon, getting a % of the sales from people it directs to Amazon? They are likely the top forwarder to Amazon and it shouldn't be too hard to insert their Amazon Associates ID etc. into their Amazon-bound URLs...
