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?

Always hungry for new revenue streams, bloggers might be interested in a new widget launched by AnswerCo.com, an office and computer supply company.
If you have a product-focused blog or Web site that centers around printers, copiers, fax machines, projectors and digital cameras, the widget adds a price comparison tool to your content.
If you’re not technically-inclined, this is an easy way to add over 10,000 Amazon products to your blog along with info on over 75,000 models from AnswerCo’s database.
“More people are turning to independent sources like blogs for honest product opinions and information,” stated Bruce Capper, president. “This cross-reference widget gives bloggers the capability to have thousands of products on their websites, thereby increasing commission to them personally.”
