    They don't make a portfolio that personally identifies you to advertisers like google does.

    I've been using it since google decided to track everything you do and put it on one big database to sell to advertisers.

    Works just as good if not better than google (which i've noticed really caters their search results to whomever has paid them the most money)

    Enjoy.

    Generally speaking the sponsored links will show as the first couple of results on page one. The rest of it is down to pure SEO time and effort put in. I know people on page one who haven't given Google a penny.

    I believe google are breaking EU law so there may well be some back tracking in that regard, but it's probably just as wise to delete history and just 'don't take part'...

    I've just been trying this out, and now that I've told it to concentrate on Australian sites it's clearly doing a better job than Google. Thank you for the recommendation. I may not have any secrets worth uncovering but it's good to get more relevant results than I've been getting.

    Big brother isn't an advertiser. The gov can figure out whatever it wants about you without google.

    That doesn't mean advertisers should too though.

    honestly try privacy suit, it tells you who is tracking you. I have blocked in the last five
    minutes, three social networks and stopped seventeen tracking attempts!

    you can get an add on for that! It generates random searches to kind of leave a
    trail of useless dis-information, you probably dont need it though.

    That's okay, I enjoy being tracked and having my info sold by third parties.
