Amazon to Recommend Stuff on Your Site (Products Too)

Amazon has launched a brand new widget in their Associates program, something that hardly qualifies as news by itself. This one is a bit interesting though, as it not only pushes relevant (?) products on Amazon, but also related content on your very own site. That is interesting, since it means that Amazon would have to analyze your content to make any kind of decent recommendations. The launch posts doesn’t give us much more than that, other than a dummy image, but Amazon affiliates can login and give it a go themselves. Have you used this widget? Share your experience in the comments!
