I would try Alyssa's suggestion since you lose nothing, but I am not sure if amazon links are it or not. Scidev.net has zero ads and top notch content, yet it has been slammed with a 60% drop in traffic. Turns out they are a non-profit funded by several Western govs to spread knowledge to the world [en.wikipedia.org...] . They are a PR8 and with a back-link profile to make jealous almost any webmaster. Traffic matters to them since they use it to justify funding, and since their mission is to be read as much as possible it matters even more. Content farm they are not, that much is certain.
Road and Travel Magazine also reported the same pandalization in Google forums. One by one they are making their case as desperation sets in.
