The company responsible for the worst oil spill in U.S. history took the high road which was, industry observers agreed, the best course of action for the company. Turns out, BP may be spending up to $10,000 a day to pay for "oil" search terms that redirect Google, Yahoo and Bing Web search users to the company's official website. Currently, searches via these engines for terms such as "gulf spill," "oil" or "oil spill," return a sponsored link to BP's official website at the top of the list with the text, "Info about the Gulf of Mexico Spill Learn More about How BP is Helping".
