    I'm planning to make an Authority review site ( AT LEAST 50+, 1000+ words/post) Site should be a collection of reviews on different products but I'm not sure should i start such project because I have heard Google shopping is going to destroy the amazon affiliate?

    Anyone got an idea what I should do?

    Google is currently under investigation for nepotism, so I don't think they'll get too far. Also, there seems to be plenty of people banking with Amazon currently.

    Let's hope they back off a bit.. Some of larger sites I run are product sales focused and Google is slowly pushing the competition (me) away.

    Agree, I wouldn't worry about it too much either.

    Too big to fall, we've heard this some time ago, and we know now that it's false. If they fail, they can go out of the game. At the moment, there's investigation in Europe and US, so... wait and see, but they know that they can't go too far because there's anti-trust laws..... to limit their excessive position.

    Well I am planning some big stuff with Amazon that doesn't rely on Google so it doesn't matter for me at all if they "try".
