The best things in life are often free. This includes search results. Organic search results are kind of like organic food, harder to find and potentially better for you. Now, no chemicals are used to grow organic search results but there are farmers, (I mean Search Engine Optimization pros) who specialize in getting their search terms to the top of the organic results. As always, it’s caveat emptor. As a searcher, you should realize that people are paying to get their search terms to the top in the paid results and the organic results so click wisely. Pick the search engine that suits you best.
Lately, it’s getting harder to tell paid results from organic results as most search engines are trying harder to make more money from pay per click advertising. Here are some examples that show you where to find organic, non-paid results. Click to enlarge the images.
