Scour Gives Points for Browsing

If you are a power searcher who spends all day on Yahoo, Google or MSN, then Scour wants to pay you to, well, scour the web. Scour is a search engine too, but they aggregate results from the top three as well as collect reviews and feedback from other members. Scour also gives you points which can be redeemed for cash. 6,500 points gets you a $25 Visa gift card. Users are rewarded one point for searching, two points for votes, three points for a comment, maxing out at four per search. 1,625 searches for $25? Meh.
