Who wants to have some fun? YOU can spend KEN LAY'S $$ !
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 01:34 PM by Vinnie From Indy
It appears Ken Lay is paying Google on a click through program to work on his PR. I have posted a link to the story. You can also go to Google and enter "Enron". Lay's click through ad is on the side. He pays everytime you click. Have fun! Enjoy Yourself!

2. A little math
If 10,000 people on this forum here click 3 times a day on average, we can run his cost of the ad to $1,000,000 / year. (The article says it's costing him 10 cents per click)

Maybe that's not a lot to Mr. Lay, maybe it is.

3. Why would we want the Enron crook's site to be first on google searches?
I don't want the public to read his propoganda. Sorry.

4. Also, try searching for RNC on google
RNC also provides a pay-per-click ad (though I don't know what they are paying). It's the 3rd or 4th from the top.

5. wouldn't you have to clear cookies for each click?
Normally programs read cookies and count once for each user. Clear you cookies each time to make sure he pays.
