Every search engine today auctions the top search result to the highest bidder to make money, but not PrivacyWall.
PrivacyWall is a B corporation, which means we consider consumers as the most important stakeholder - not investors, not shareholders, not Wall Street. We are not beholden to investors looking for a quick return at your expense.
Users expect search engines to be unbiased when they are searching for information, but that just isn't the case today. When searching for unbiased information on financial products, healthcare, and education, users expect honest advice. We found that every major search engine auctions off the first slot on a search page to the highest paying advertiser. By buying the first slot on a search page, advertisers are able to influence search rankings and the results you see. Prioritizing revenue over relevance is harmful for consumers. To make more money, some search engines have gone as far as to make it very difficult to tell the difference between sponsored and organic search results.
To demonstrate our commitment to privacy, we guarantee that the first search result you see will always be organic. That means advertisers will never get to hijack your attention, no matter how much they are willing to pay. Advertising in the right place and at the right time can benefit and inform consumers on their search journey. We just don't believe it's right for the first result on a search result page to be a sponsored result.
This commitment makes PrivacyWall unique. No private search engine today except PrivacyWall does this. This is just one of the unique things we do to put our money where our mouth is.
We guarantee that the first result you see on our search page will always been based on relevance not on the ability to pay to influence search rankings.
