Scour search engine

Just found out about Scour a new search engine with a difference. You get results from Google, Yahoo! and MSN search on one page and you get to vote and comment on the results. Thus, you become part of a online social network. Best of all you are awarded points for your activity on the site, which can be redemmed later for Visa gift cards.

Scour originally started off as Aftervote.com, a search engine with an AJAX backbone. The new brand name - Scour, came about after it was was acquired by Internext media, owner and operator of the ABCSearch Network.

Right now it is still in Beta and I am looking forward to see how it does.

I will prefer searching for a single search engine. Everyone has their preferred search engine and for a matter of fact, it is really much slower to retrieve data from multiple SE as compared to using just one SE.

I used to like Scour but recently, they didn't show love to all of its users. If you're not part of the country lists they posted, you get $5 for 50,000 points. Now, that's just a bummer right?
