AV and Private will share the income, but they do not enclose how that is done.
They really hope to make money out of the adult searches. Who is going to complain if their relevancy for adult search words is some what biased? The newbe seeker? I doubt it.

I imagine thousands of adult sites might see it differently.
Their policy is 'Take the money and run', in other words.
It might be good though, if they start to show profits, without changing anything for the rest of the searches. Someone has to pay for the services you know...
Two new facts then:
-They are not targeting US traffic this time.
-The coupling arrangement is due to go live from November 15.
Little edit here. Private has published their press release www.prvt.com (Its in a java pop up can´t link directly)
It is not surprising that they start the program outside the US. Be sure that it will spill over to whole AV if it works. Maby also to other competetive catagories.
Still if SEO shall have a future, there has to be search engines. And they can´t provide the service without making money. As long as they do not comprimise on other searches, I think that this might work out fine.
But what about gambling? or pharmacepticals or real estate? or travel? If AV take that step I think that they will loose popularity.

Pornmonger installs family filter at home.
Recommends others to do the same.
Björn Skärlen, Internet manager of new Altavista partner Private Media Group, has installed a family filter on his home computer, according to Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter [Fri Oct 10]. He recommends everybody else who is disturbed by porn to do the same.
- I am not allowed to say how much we will make from this deal [with Altavista], but we are talking of millions of dollars. We expect to triple our Internet sales volume, he told DN's reporter.
- We are no censors. This is a deal between an advertiser and us, just like newspapers that carry porn ads, says Vesley Chrichton, Altavista's marketing director for Europe according to Dagens Nyheter. "Altavista will make sure that nothing unlawful is shown", he added.
