Like any other search engine, OceanHero makes money by showing ads
1. Every time you search for something, OceanHero will show you ads relevant to your search request. These ads are typically displayed above and below your search results. See below an example
2. Whenever you click on one of these ads, OceanHero receives a share of the price which the advertisers pay in order to show their ads. Please note that clicking on many ads intentionally, it does not help us, as advertisers realize that this was done intentionally and they then penalize us.
3. With the money we earn from the advertising, we can finance the collection of one ocean-bound plastic bottle per five searches our users do. Here you can read more about why and how we do it: https://about.oceanhero.today/how-it-works
