What is MoreGoogle ?
This Add-on for Internet Explorer give you Google search results via a API from Google, and with thumbnail view from the site and links to traffic rankings via Alexa. Here all is ok!
But when you search for a product, it's show you Amazon price information and users rating. Well, that's good you say ! That right! But if you go to Amazon and buy the product, the guy at MoreGoogle receive a commission!!!
From the MoreGoogle site:
How are you affiliated with Amazon.com?
I am an Amazon.com associate. Amazon Associates drive internet traffic to Amazon.com through specially formatted links and earn up to 10% in referral fees on all qualifying revenue made through their links.
When you use MoreGoogle and click on an Amazon.com result, you support me and MoreGoogle if you actually purchase a product.
I think this is a clear violation of the Google API !?!
The Google Web APIs service is made available to you for your personal, non-commercial use only (at home or at work).
But the guy is kind, he is splitting half and half with you, if you are a Amazon associate!
