BP Buys Search Terms

BP paid Yahoo! and Google so that the oil company's own website would be the first result shown after a search for terms such as "oil spill." What do you think?

"They didn't have to go to all that trouble. I would've just ignored this whole thing for 10 bucks."

Angie Duvall • Chemical Absorption Operator


"If they're not careful, they could start being associated with oil spills."

Chad Durant • Systems Analyst

"That's pretty bad on BP's part, but it's not the worst thing they've ever done. The oil spill itself is the worst thing they've ever done."

Alex Horne • Lacquer Polisher
