Websites from responsible businesses rise to the top of our search results.

Our search algorithm is not clouded in secrecy. On the contrary, we openly declare the main feature and motivation of our search algorithm. 

How do we determine which websites should receive a ranking boost?

In order to determine which websites are owned and operated by business that have made responsible, ethical and forward thinking governance a core aspect of how they conduct business, we look for guidance towards the world’s leading not-for-profit organisations that specialize in defining and encouraging sustainable and ethical business.

Just like Google Search, Blumble is a search engine. For most searches it will be hard to notice a difference between Blumble and Google search results. 

The reason that the search results are fairly similar in quality is because Blumble’s core search index is powered by Microsoft Bing Search.

However, depending on what you search for, Blumble will boost the search rankings for socially responsible businesses. 

Every search result that contains websites from socially responsible business will be clearly marked. 

Either the background, text or an icon will clearly identify a website as having received a boost based on ranking criteria relevant to social and environmental responsibility.

Yes, absolutely!

Generally you will notice little difference between your Google and Blumble search results. 

The only difference is that responsible business have their sites rank higher.

For example, if you’re looking for an Ice Cream parlour near you, and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream would normally be ranked 2nd, then our algorithm would most likely boost Ben & Jerry’s from 2nd position to 1st position. Why? Because Ben & Jerry’s has done an admirable job in being a leader in the United States when it comes to Corporate Social Responsibility.
