So when I search for the following:

Why does a Amazon Buy Now results show up at the top of the list? I have been using DDG for a very longtime and since you have been tinkering it appears other things are being snuck in. What gives on the advert link result?

That's the 'buy' instant answer, and as well as providing people with a nice interface to amazon, it generates revenue for DuckDuckGo through a referral scheme.
