Actually i think this is a bad move. This is what happens when you get too greedy. Google is the best search engine, it should have stayed that way. Whats next, a portal ala Yahoo? It looks like they have joined the affiliate world. I think this opens a big door to other search engines. A lot of people have online business, affiliate sites etc. and have built product pages and paid for PPC, Adwords etc. I'm sure Google will make lots of money in the affiliate arena, so i'm sure they won't mind the loss of PPC, Adwords. There probably will be a big backlash.
