Amazon Planning Google Adsense Rival?
Chris Beasley reports Amazon is planning a contextual ad network that sounds very similar to Google’s Adsense.
On the phone last night it was explained to me that this is more or less an Adsense clone, meaning third party sponsored links, not Amazon links. It is known that Amazon currently getâ€™s sponsored links for their own sites from Google, but apparently they wish to take out the middleman and break out on their own.
Looks like they’re having trouble convincing publishers to drop their Adsense ads and switch to Amazon.
