Searching for Mesothelioma

John Battelle's Searchblog reports on a Washington Times / UPI report that says the word "Mesothelioma", a rare form of cancer related to asbestos exposure, is the most valuable keyword in the search world right now, at $90 and up per click.

Scroll down to the bottom of that UPI story and you'll see Google ad links for, you guessed it, mesothelioma-related services.

Of course, every blogger in the blogosphere is now going to write about it, no doubt in far greater detail than I, in the hopes that a) mesothelioma-related ads appear on their pages and b) people click on them numerous times.

Nah, nothing like that would ever happen...

(One wonders what they'd pay for pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis?)
