    I believe they dont. However, they have an agreement set up for sure being a really big meta-engine. Also to note the only person that would have to be paid in this situation is google because MSN & Yahoo allow the results to be displayed on other sites by allowing RSS. Again though I am positive they dont acctually Pay for the results to google.

    I feel there must be some kind of revenue sharing, or barter exchange of banner display, or something must be there. Without money, nothing moves in this world.

    why google, yahoo or msn will do barter with dogpile ?

    all major search engins do provide search feeds for free. they can do this as they get revenu from advetising or PPC advertising.
    also site which posting search results get share of PPC revenu (adsence program for google. i don't know about yahoo and msn)

    you can start your own serach engin (google seach feeds) by following ways

    http://www.digitalpoint.com/tools/search/

    or simply from code given through adsens search box code

    or you can have your own serch engin

    They probably have a small written agreement,,other then that they have their logos in the search results and they tell the user which searche ngine the result belongs to, so they are all legal.and using results available for free on the web.

    Wouldnt it be the other way around? Yahoo, MSN, Google would pay a given site to show their results. Assuming there is enough volume, of course.

    Why would google pay someone to use their content when their website is only based on that?

    branding? if a site gets a few million searches a day, you could pay them to put your results there and show google adwords too. makes sense to me.

    The website only got big because its a meta-engine. Yes it would make sense for other websites like CNN sure. However, Dogpile began by using other search engines database, so I dont think they were in position to bargain.

    When they first started out they would of used a system of when people search it stores the meta information from other search engines in there own database of sites, and so when they got bigger then they were in a good position, ive seen it done before :)
