MSFT attempts to bribe searchers

Hasn't already tried this with A9 search engine? Does anyone even know what A9 is anymore? AMZN was in best position to capitalize on this "seach for bucks" trend, since it has a huge retail business model. But it failed.

Also MSFT has tried this earlier on, with a temporary bump of couple of percent points in search traffic, which then reverted back to even less traffic than before the gimmick. Its like hoping that zune will take hold against ipod if only they give couple of bucks back to everyone who buys a zune
