    Umm, what gives? With the latest PR update above all search results books.good.com/url ranks above all other affiliates site.

    Try this search;

    african mango reviews

    And you will see what im talking about.

    That might be just a States thing because in Canada I don't see it, I've never seen a books link in the search results before actually. But it doesn't surprise me they're doing that, it would earn them a lot of money and get more traffic to one of their less popular services

    Im using an ip from the US to test and it seems accurate for the Los Angeles area anyway. Book.google.com ranks above all search results, except for Youtube videos, for these terms which is bullshit. This is unbelievable if its true. The end to affiliate websites for this niche pretty much.

    I'm seeing it too, and I'm seeing it on other "reviews" keywords. The first page is covered with google books, which are completely irrelevant. I'm in the US.
