Imagine if you could donate to your favorite charity every time you searched the web. And imagine if it didn’t cost you any money.
Well, GoodSearch enables you to do exactly that.
GoodSearch is a search engine that donates 50-percent of its revenue to charities and schools designated by its users.
How Does It Work?
All you need to do is use GoodSearch when you search the web.
GoodSearch generates income from the advertising displayed on the search results page.
Note that the first time you use GoodSearch, you will need to choose your favorite charity. Once you’ve chosen your charity, you can just return to GoodSearch whenever you need to search the web.
To help your favorite charity:
- Go to GoodSearch.com
- Select your favorite charity (you can either type it in or select it from a list of charities)
- Search the web as you normally would
Here are some pre-made links to help you get the idea. By clicking on these links, the GoodSearch website will open, with the relevant charity already selected:
GoodSearch is powered by Yahoo! so you know that you’ll get good quality search results.
Does It Cost Me Anything?
No. GoodSearch provides people a way to support their favorite charity or school at no cost. The money comes from the GoodSearch advertisers.
Where Does The Money Come From?
The money comes from the GoodSearch advertisers - companies who pay to advertise on GoodSearch. Here’s how GoodSearch explain it:
Search engines make most of their money from companies that pay an advertising fee when users click on links during a search. At GoodSearch, we’ve developed a patent-pending way to track and direct these search-generated proceeds to charities. In other words, a portion of advertiser dollars (and not your own!) earned as a result of your search, are now passed along to the organization you’ve chosen to support.
How Much Will My Charity Receive?
GoodSearch estimates that each search averages to around $0.01 for your charity. They have also provided the following estimates to give you an idea of how much money each charity could potentially receive:
