Don’t Just Search, GoodSearch

Traffic on the fabled Information Highway speeds along at an increasingly brisk pace. But without a map, wayfarers can easily get lost amid the dizzying array of destinations. That’s why search engines are so popular — and necessary. So much so that the most popular search engine, Google, has entered our English lexicon as a verb. Want info on some topic? Google it! Anyone who uses the Internet invariably finds himself engaging a search engine for links to information on specific topics.

We would like to introduce our readers who use search engines — we know you are many — to a new way to search online. It’s called GoodSearch.

GoodSearch is a new Yahoo-powered search engine that donates half its advertising revenue, about a penny per search, to the charities its users designate, including the NOR. GoodSearch works just like any other search engine and provides the same quality search results, courtesy of Yahoo. All one need do is log on to www.Good­Search.com, type “New Oxford Review” in the field that asks, “Who do you GoodSearch for?” click “verify,” and start searching. It’s that simple. And the best part, we humbly submit, is that the NOR automatically benefits — there is no need to reach into your pocketbooks.

You might think that a penny per search is peanuts, but the results add up to something big. If 100 supporters made an average of four searches a day, the NOR would receive $1,460 at the year’s end. If 1,000 supporters made an average of four searches a day, the NOR would receive $14,600. That’s more than a few peanuts!
