Adwords Tricks With Amazon?

Gaming Adwords With Amazon?

So why is this guy advertising to a strange (not the canonical product page in this case) Amazon page? Could he be getting around trademark restrictions by using an Amazon.com domain? When you file a trademark issue with adwords they tie the trademark authorizations back to the client id – so this seems unlikely. They have a recently granted trademark – so maybe Google just hasn’t caught this one yet.

Perhaps he/she’s is gaming the reviews of the Amazon.com domain to appear as for his product? Could be. Either way his url doesn’t seem to have an affiliate ID – so there’s probably not much Amazon is going to do about this – as PPC’ing amazon.com is definitely against the terms of service for amazon affiliates.

Do you have a better idea? Leave it in the comments.
