With the caveat that I don't work for Amazon and don't know how their specific recommendation engine is implemented, it's probably down to some quirks of probability. Those things generally just look at a bunch of products and pick the one you're most likely to buy based on what similar customers did, and if you look at a very niche product that has fans that tend to all buy the same set of things, the probabilities around that single item can win out over a dozen generalist products that aren't very predictive about what people will buy next. "Armor of God" definitely sounds like one of those niche products.Booyakasha wrote: ↑Sat Sep 08, 2018 4:15 amAmazon's analytics are screwy.
About 99% of my all-time purchases from Amazon have been the crap I'm into---------gaming, teevee, anime, manga, toys, comics, etc. I look for an Armor of God pin for my nephew one time, and now all my top picks and recommendations are nothing but Armor of God crap, other assorted Christian propaganda, and inspirational posters. Bring back the ponies already, for heavens sakes.
But some of it also seems deliberate since I've had recommendations like that ignore me specifically marking items as gifts and not to be used for suggestions, so that may be the intended behavior in Amazon's case. Can't imagine why.
