Community based search and your revenue

When I surf around the web and investigate for appropriate and interesting widgets for my blog WidgetMania!, (I collect there widgets for sites and blogs), I hit on Swicki, search engine that automatically learns from your community’s search behavior. This search-tagged, widget has big potential from my point of view.

Why? At first, it’s free for everyone (of course, you need a web page), it’s very customizable, you can embed it into your site or blog, whatever, and finally, you can earn from search results. Also, very good possibility is traffic - you can drive traffic to your sites - you create swickies with a lot of keywords (which are relevant to your sites) and add your sites to search results.
Last, but not least, you can add your adsense code(or chitika, or Context.web, or you can suggested advertiser) to your search results. Very impressive, don’t you think?

The easiest way to understand how it works - just click on these few examples bellow. I spent just an hour of my time and I think it worth. (I’ll continue playing with swickies, for shure).

I put swicki on my magnifyed page Famous Video Blogs, in header, as you can see. If you click on one tag/keyword there, let’s say “AskNinja”, you’ll go to search results page, which is customized with my header and my links and, also my adsense publisher code. Great!

Another example is swicki embed here, above Revver video widget, with keywords related to blog monetizing options.

Check out my other swickies:
Net.Animations, and search the best animations on the net;
