    Default being

    For $50 a year, the company will ensure your profile tops the list of sponsered searches when anyone searches your name using a major Internet search engine such as Google or Yahoo.

    "Your name being in search listings is important and the information attached to it is important,"

    1. what does the "sponsered" mean in the sentence?

    2. your name being in search listings........why are we using "being" here? Can we modify the sentence to "that your name is in search listings is important........" ? Are the two sentences have the same meaning?or what's the difference?

    thanks

    Sponsored searches- you pay.

    The two sentences have the same meaning.
