We all search the internet, and if you are reading a blog like this you probably do a LOT of searching and try to use the best search engine for the job. Well, unfortunately, every search engine is different and provides different results. That’s why I prefer to see all of the top search engines listings at once when I am searching for something.
Why not get PAID for searching the internet?!
Let me introduce you to a search engine that not only searches the results from Google, Yahoo, and MSN for your keywords, but it also rewards you for every search you make.
The name of this search engine is Scour. And they have scoured the web so you don’t have to.
Here is a screen shot of the homepage. Click the image to check it out now.
Scour is one of the newest, innovative ways of searching the internet and also forming a community to get the best results.
How do you get paid?
Well you won’t get rich by using Scour, but it’s a nice incentive to at least get a little something back for making the search engines rich i.e. Google.
Here’s how it works. Everytime you make a search you get a point. If you leave a comment about a website in the search results you get another point, and if you vote a site up or down you get another point. If you refer friends to the site who sign up, you get 25% of all the points they make.
After getting to 6,500 points you will receive a $25 Visa gift card.
So don’t quit your day job. This is not meant to be a money making scheme. Rather, it’s a way to reward users for searching the net, and it’s really catching on. Just ask yourself, how much are you making for searching the web now? At least Scour will pay you for using their search engine.
Search Google, Yahoo, and MSN all at once:
Yes, I know that dogpile can do the same thing, but there is something even better about what Scour can do here. You can give different search engines more weight than others. For instance, if you like Google’s results better than the others you can have more results from Google. Say you like Yahoo’s results better, and you hate MSN… you can just put more weight on Yahoo results in your personal settings, and less with MSN. So it really is a user based search engine.
This screen shot shows how you can change how the search engine places weight on Google, Yahoo, and MSN:
This search engine is TOTALLY customazible so you can get the exact results you are looking for everytime. And if you happen to get results you don’t want you can vote sites down. If you happen to find a website in the search results that was particularly helpful you can vote it up.
Scour’s voting system:
And the more friends you get to sign up with Scour, the more points you can earn, since you will get 25% of all the points they earn just by searching.
So you already search online anyway, right? Why not get some appreciation for it while using the best search engine online.
