Internet Search engines like Google and Bing use a variety of criteria to order results, including popularity and relevance. But the fact that a site is at the top of the results does not mean it's the best or most relevant resource. Some search engines accept payment for top position, utilizing a keyword bidding system and collecting a fee from advertisers when you click through to their sites. The more advertisers pay, the higher they rise in the results. This obviously tends to skew results in favor of sites with the biggest budgets. Below are both regular search engines and others that utilize the pay approach, some of which (like Overture) also feed results to regular search engines.Overture Kanoodle
