I like using the Google search engine because it doesn't have flashing adverts etc. However, how do the creators of Google make money from the site?

They sell the 'google search appliance' using their technology to companies who want good search engines for their sites.
They also sell 'sponsored links' in their search results. Search for 'furniture' and you see paid links from people who have paid for the word 'furniture'.

They also just launch a new service call 'Google Answers' where you pay to find answer to your questions and Google keep a part of the money you owe. Some gurus from Ask FunTrivia can make a fortune out of it! Not me I'm too french!
