I just tried this as well, and could not duplicate the poster's experience.

Amazon does display certain widgets to help you find related items. For example, they have:
- Recommendations based on products you have purchased, rated, etc., on Amazon
- Recently view items based on products you have browsed on Amazon
- Related items based on your searches on Amazon

To the poster: can you be more specific in what you did?

My guess is that you went to Amazon and either did a search or looked at a product, etc., and you just forgot. Don't forget that if you do a Google search and land on an Amazon page, then obviously that becomes part of your recently viewed items.

If mathematically you end up with the wrong answer, try multiplying by the page number.
