is it a free service? sortof.... "pay per click" sure you can set it to 0 if you list a site .... but rarely ever get if at all to the top of the list.
The main problem is the word list that ppl use to get "hits" when the search is done. ppl use entire dictionarys! 20,000 word that are not even related to the site. so it does not matter if you type doll dog door or car the same sites come up time and time again so that the search end up getting 9999,999,999 results most of which are NOT related to what you search for.
How to fix it?
how to get them to limit their word lists to only a few words that really describe the sites and make it more effective? yes i nervous bout posting a thread like this but the user can only do so much so one ends up with a search like this .... doll -car -dog -etc.....see?
even if you are "tracked" from site to site one only one internet session that is still cyberstalking... but to use spybot after each session take 45 minutes that could be doing something else...well so some stuff while scanning but there are other things to do to.
thank you all for you comments and suggestions you know it is a love dislike relationship with this search engine....
