It's been so long since my last post about Goodsearch at the $1100.00 level that the thread has auto locked....

But, I am proud to report that we have now reached the $1500.00 mark for donations raised for Seti just by websearching using Goodsearch.

Please keep it in mind folks....
All those little clicks DO add up!!

Use Goodsearch when you can.

Meow meow meow!!!

The Goodsearch search engine...

You don't have to register to use it for Seti unless you wish to keep track of your totals.
Just select 'I support University of California - SETI@home' to send a penny per search to the Seti project.
If you do not register, just keep an eye on it once in a while to make sure your selection cookie has not expired.

And......
Goodsearching!

I am at $8.40...that's 840 searches that I would have made anyway using Alta Vista or Google. But making them with Goodsearch brings pennies from heaven...well, maybe not heaven.

If you shop on-line, if you would be doing it anyway, earns even more for the project.

Newest update......

Folks, you have been forgetting to use Goodsearch, I think. It's been moving rather slowly these days.
But, the kitties are happy to announce that we are just a few pennies shy of reaching......ta daa........
$1,700.00 for Seti using the simple clicks of Goodsearch.

Let's all keep it in mind. It does work.

Meow.

Update

Now cleared the $1700 mark :-)

All for the price of a few searches - fund raising at its most relaxed

Another kitty update and shameless plug.
Wish I could issue them more often. But,.....

We have now reached $1,822.00 raised for Seti by using the Goodsearch search engine.
Please don't forget to use it when searching the 'net.

Those pennies DO add up, folks.

Meow!

Technically, we've only raised half of that (at best)....

Please use this site honestly. Fraudulent searches will result in a charity being de-listed.
1. Estimated results. Fifty percent of the revenue generated from GoodSearch is shared with your cause. Payments are based on qualifying searches and have ranged from $0.01 to $0.013 per search from 2005 through 2011.
2. GoodShop data is posted weekly. Data may be delayed as merchants can take up to six weeks to report sales. You may also notice a change in the totals due to returned merchandise.
3. Historical data is reconciled hourly so this number might not match total amount raised.

Sites like these kinda tick me off when they hide the fine print.

The question was raised about the amount we have actually raised for Seti using Goodsearch.

In particular was brought up the following part of the Goodsearch terms.....
"Fifty percent of the revenue generated from GoodSearch is shared with your cause."

I have good news.

I emailed Goodsearch asking for clarification on this issue and got the following response this afternoon.
"Thanks for your email. The "amount raised" on the goodsearch site is the amount you will receive."

Sooooo, the figures I have been using are indeed correct. Whatever Goodsearch takes off the top is before the amount shown on their site, and at the time of this writing, we have raised $1,834.95 for Seti using Goodsearch.

Keep on Goodsearching.

Meow!

The project just received another check from Goodsearch. It is working out surprisingly well.

Another update.
Just reached the $1,900.00 milestone for contributions to Seti generated by all of your searches on Goodsearch.

Please do keep it in mind when making inquiries, and we shall continue to turn searches into pennies into dollars for Seti in the coming New Year.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Mark and the kitty crew....Squirrel, Tigger II, Bandit, and Purrball.
