Any business wants to be profitable, and for us increasing profit comes from growth (i.e. the margin remains the same, or even falls, as we get more visitors and try to make the site more appealing). There are easy ways to increase profit, but they would impact on user experience. We could serve you 3x or 4x more adverts and still be below the industry average per session. We could allow pop-ups and other instrusive advertising. And maybe one day market forces will push us that way. But I'll be fighting it every inch of the way.

I'd add that Amazon's general corporate strategy is to pursue market share and satisfied customers, even at the expense of profits.  The idea that Amazon would push you to increase profits at the expense of quality seems absurd to me, as it would be contrary to their general view.
