I would think that Google is looking at other factors that happen to correlate with Amazon product rankings.
Taking a different approach to this question - Billionaire Warren Buffett invests in companies and then the stock market often boosts the value of those companies. This does not mean that the stock exchange is solely boosting the company value because of Warren Buffett. There are many factors at work including improvements that Buffett introduces to the company and the company getting free publicity.
