It's advertising when you click the link that the keyword generates it brings in a little money.

What's happening is exactly what should happen - PCA get some revenue from this, which helps pay for the free site we all enjoy the use of.

That may be true but I still don't see the use for them. I have clicked on them a few times and cant realy see the connection with the word they underline every time. I would rather they stoped the underlining.

Don't knock any simple thing they can do to help support the site.

As long as they can get advertising revenue from doing it, it's not really what you or I think that matters - it's what the advertisers will pay for the privilege.

If you want to ignore it, then just do so - it does no harm.
