So, 26% more paid clicks on relatively flat traffic means...?
It means they've gotten very good at showing people the right ads, at the right time.
Showing affiliate offers over 50% of the results page for many products surely helped, those aren't tucked away in a 'shopping' section anymore. Ads up top, big brands under that and affiliate offers over the right 50% of the page would be considered pure spam on any other site.
