A search for “elevateprinting.com” yielded a generic web portal first, “Mr. Lind’s Eath Science Page” second, and “Ms. Nyland’s Trimester Exam Review” third.

They also claim they need to run significantly fewer relative servers per query than Google. After getting the following error, maybe they should reconsider: No results because of high load… Due to excessive load, our servers didn’t return results. Please try your search again. Overall it seems like they might have the right idea for – Read the full article
