It is still pretty interesting that folks like Fox News obviously still don't understand search engines. One recent article states, "BP is being accused of trying to manipulate the search results on sites like Google and Yahoo, as it attempts to salvage its battered image following the oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico." First of all there is an oil spill or oil spilling in the Gulf of Mexico it's not just a slick. Second of all these results are clearly marked as "Sponsored" in search results. Third, according to Google the estimated cost for these terms is far lower than Fox or the Fiscal Times alleges. This article is basically all spin or just incorrect information. Either way, there is no manipulation and "big bucks" don't appear to be changing hands. EDF and www.AudubonInstitute.org also appear in "Sponsored" results for the same terms.
