More craziness. So, let's say I'm a publisher. Our books are distributed through amazon because it's a very trusted site, and so many people have accounts to purchase from it. Our books (just saying, hypthetical, like) go to amazon where they are sold.
We, not wanting to do retail, again hypertheticlike, advertise using adwords and send buyers to amazon.com, where they can purchase from them rather than from CoachMeBozo, Inc, (my company). We receive a commission from the sale, plus we receive the wholesale price of the books.
Followin? No way no how an algo is going to know or understand any of this. Not that I care since at $5.00 a click, it's not doable on, let's say a book selling for ten bucks.
