Amazon’s search is increasingly featuring sponsored products, Amazon brands, as well as recommended products, instead of organic results. For many searches, there are only two organic results on the whole screen above the fold. Not until scrolling down past various recommended products do organic search results come up.There's a cliché that Amazon has infinite shelf space. Technically it does, as it can support a virtually infinite number of products since each has a zero marginal cost. However, most shoppers will only see a few options before making a purchase decision. Thus the number of products on the infinite shelf is not relevant - shoppers will, most of the time, only look at the first page of search results ...Amazon Demotes Organic Results in Search
