A Jewish museum in Atlanta says it is paying Google upwards of $2 per click to stop a “neo-Nazi site from appearing as (a) top result for ‘did the Holocaust happen’ searches,” the Guardian reported.
“They may not take money from people denying the Holocaust, but the point is that museums and other organisations are paying to combat this stuff,” the publication quoted David Schendowich, head of marketing at the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, as saying. “They plainly are. We are. We’re paying them up to $2 a click.”
The Guardian also quoted a Google spokesperson as saying, “We never want to make money from searches for Holocaust denial and we don’t allow regular advertising on those terms.”
