Message 1153712 - Posted: 18 Sep 2011, 22:46:37 UTC - in response to Message 1153698.  

What's to stop someone setting up some sort of automation that would do searches via a macro & 'artifically' generate money?...

The simple fact that Goodsearch will delist a charity where there's evidence of such kind of dishonesty ought to be enough. I really hope nobody is immature enough to attempt that kind of nonsense.

You can log into GoodSearch through your Google, Facebook, Twitter or Yahoo! account. If you do whatever icon you have set up for that account shows up on GoodSearch.

OK...the kitties would like to help out too, their little paws do a little searching now and again.
How do you get your Seti avatar to display there?

Agreed. Let's all play it above board and search manually for things we would search for anyway. GoodSearch isn't going to solve all our financial problems. But if we keep at it, a thousand bucks or so a year wouldn't hurt us.

I don't like having any toolbar on my browswer, but more than happy to use goodsearch which is now added.

Nice one Eric & Well done Blurf.

I agree, toolbars can be annoying, and I especially hate when they get installed with totally unrelated software. Fortunately, as far as I can tell, the goodsearch "toolbar" just changes the search box in the existing toolbar.

What I would like is a way to turn off the frames around the pages if you click through the search results.
