GoodSearch deserves BuzzBadge

First of all, thanks to my uncle, the author of aPleasant Surprise(s) and GoingGlobal for his suggestion on buzzing GoodSearch. This angel of all search engines is going pay to charity every time you search.

How does it work?
  • On the GoodSearch homepage, choose from thousands of organizations or add your favorite cause to our list.
  • Search the Internet just like you normally would — the site is powered by Yahoo!, so you'll get the same high-quality search results you're accustomed to.
  • Fifty percent of the revenue generated from advertisers is shared with the charity, school or nonprofit organization of your choosing.

How much money could this generate for my charity or school?

We estimate that each search will generate approximately $0.01 for the designated charity or school. If you think about how many times you search the Internet each year, and then add in all the searches from the supporters of your organization, it quickly adds up! Here's an example of how much your organization can earn:

Charity or School Size Number of Supporters Average Searches Per Day Estimated Revenue/Year
Small 100 2 $730
Medium 1,000 2 $7,300
Large 10,000 2 $73,000

The sky is the limit. The more people use GoodSearch, the more money will be directed towards causes. There is no cap on how much money we will direct to charities.

Founded by Ken Ramberg and JJ Ramberg, this search engine is dedicated to their mother, Connie Ramberg, who passed away from cancer.

Some of the success stories:

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation - $1,230

Children's Tumor Foundation- $490

The Elephant Sanctuary - $1,750

Veterans of Foreign Wars - $670

Since you are going to search anyway, why not make your search worthwhile? GoodSearch gets the Buzz.

I'm one of the founders of Search Kindly ( and I was wondering how I could submit Search Kindly for a BuzzBadge.
