    amazon and google

    I hear all this talk about amazon and google as competetors. It seems that amazon relies on google, but how does google rely on amazon? Amazon affiliates have thousands of pages spidered in google. Without google, those affiliates would have no traffic and thus no sales. How does google benefit from amazon?

    Google gets paid when someone in Amazon's website clicks on an adsense ad. Sounds like a pretty straight benefit there.

    why does amazon need to use adsense, when it can get direct advertisers due to its sheer size and reach?

    It's almost as if they seem to be tied together at the hip. I shall call him Googlezon. Yes, it's a horrendous name.
