But I'm curious about how far you'd take the non-commercial thing.
"Bob's Widget Sales" would probably be commercial.
But what if I link to the "Bob's Widget Sales" site from my hobby information site, does that make mine a commercial site?
Where does the line get drawn between commercial and non-commercial?
You could theoretically do it with an entirely human-edited engine, except that an entirely human-edited engine which is also relevant or more than barely functional is a complete and total impossibility (and that, I dare to say, includes the flawed DMOZ directory, which is the closest to such a creature we've ever seen).
I'm not aware of an all-inclusive entire web search engine with the criteria of anything but commercial. It would be a neat project, but would require human editing. The point of it seems a little weak though, as if I'm looking for info on bicycling I probably want to see a bike manufacturer or two in the mix.
Now a search engine with no dealers, affiliates, or intermediaries would be really useful!
