Apparently, Rush's staff and others repeatedly clicked on the ad in an attempt to drain the owners daily budget and were successful in doing so. It did eventually disappear as the top result. The caller said they only do this to the first 2 results.
Frankly, I had no idea Google did this and am still in a little shock after reading it. However, based on Google's activity over the last year or two it doesn't really surprise me. They've been doing some things that don't make a lot of sense to the rest of us. So, maybe it's because they have found more lucrative ways of making money.
I'd like to know if anyone else in the forum has any experience or knowledge of this activity.

Obviously, I have no ties to Rush Limbaugh or anything to do with this website.
