The reason I asked if Amazon even should show up in the SERPs was that people know to go to Amazon anyway, don't they? You don't go to Google to search for something in Facebook or even Ebay? What I am saying is that there is a point when it is pointless to show big brands like that, when they are so well known for everything that they don't need Google anymore? Lowes? Do you go to Google to find a thing you need at Lowes?
So @brinked, if we could copy whatever Amazon has done with their pages, would we be up there too or is it just because it is Amazon? I agree that there are a lot of people whining about their pages/web sites and when you look at it, they don't deserve to be on the first 10 pages in Google. They ask in Google groups saying "My site disappeared, I used to have 5 unique a day but now I am lucky if I get one a week..." We all want to be on the first page, but if you have 10 big brands like Amazon that you are competing against or just one brand with 10 pages showing, where would your site be and how can you compete?
