Advertising revenues directed to charities
bigheartedsearch.com helps Canadian charities and nonprofits by redirecting 80% of its revenue made through search advertising. Search advertising is a method of placing online advertisements, called sponsored results or sponsored links on web pages that show results from your search engine queries. Advertisers then pay us a fee every time a user click on a sponsored link.
Since money is raised through a percentage of advertising fees paid to bigheartedsearch.com by advertisers, bigheartedsearch.com remains free for all users.
