I've heard that we can also earn here at mylot when we use the search engine feature. But how come im always getting zero results? For example, I type 'sony ericsson W595', or more general search terms such as 'psychic' or 'hacking'. No matter what search term i use, i never get any results. Is there something that im doing wrong? Anyone else having the same problem? Or is mylot having a bug? Im confused.

I think it's a geographical issue, both from the what the admin has said here and from experience, 'cause I don't get any results from the web search when I search from home (Norway) or when I tried in Austria some weeks ago, but when I search from Finland I got result also for the web search. For that reason I use it mainly to search mylot discussions, and you get rewards from those too, but of course most of us will search the whole web more often than only mylot.

Really.. This is the 1st time that ive heard that it depends on where we live for us to get results on the web category. Now thats weird. I wonder why. Just like you, i will now just use mylot's search engine to search for discussions, at least it will give results.

The admin said something about certain regions of the UK, but it definitly applies to Norway too. Quite weird really :-)

And now, i think it applies to asia as well. Hmm. I really cant find an explanation for this, search results are not like cellphone signals where it is dependent on the location right? Oh well.. Simply weird.

i kinda have the same issues sometimes but every now an then i find what i am looking for. maybe it is because you it can only search certain web terms. but i am not too sure.. i could be wrong about that.

I also suspect that it only caters to very limited search terms, i really have no idea as well.. But its not the way that a search engine is supposed to be right? I hope it will improve someday, mylot admin, pls. pay attention.
