It's a "Related" link, presumably random, under "Video".
Straight through to YouTube and "Sympathy for the devil">
Who's paid, me? An advertiser?
Am I about to be banned for seeing what the hell it is I'm serving?
I was tempted by the devil:-))...Don't even start!
Are G seeing how many people are prepared to click thru and then consider possibly how many may pay to see such stuff?
Again I ask, since G does not say: AM I GETTING PAID FOR THIS?
And...wouldn't you be tempted? BTW, don't be so hypocritical when answering:-))
from what I read about it awhile back NOBODY is getting paid for it unless you are a humongus site and have a special arrangement with Google.
Didn't seem fair to me.
Apparently they are out of Beta.
Try this url: [google.com...]

Google's stated reason: combatting ad blindness. People see interesting related links in a particular spot on a page, then might be more likely to click on an adlink or ad unit.
But I am not sure I buy that.
The real reason is probably to increase free traffic to their own sites.
