What are these search engines that only show sponsored results?

    Ive seen so many of these "spammy" search engines where almost all the results are sponsored like for example:

    http://isearch.babylon.com/

    How would I make my own search engine like this?

    A couple years back I wanted to launch one of these, too.

    I think it gets most of, if not all of, it's results from Google. What they do is take the ads and "blend" them into the results, making it all look organic.

    If you do a search, lets say, for MacBook, you'll get all the ads on the side, and the highlight ads at the top as part of the organic search.

    I'd be interested in launching one of these, too. The only issue is... how would you get people hooked?

    getting the people hooked is the easy part for me. Finding out how to integrate google search mixed with sponsored results is my problem.

    Any help would be apprciated :)

    it looks like a script that takes the keyword you typed in a just creates a page on the fly with the results
