Let’s find out why keeping Search.searchdescargar.com set on browsers and using this search tool is not such a good idea. Yes, this search tool returns, seemingly, accurate search results based on the entered search query. On top of that, it allows users to quickly access certain web pages; however, it is definitely not as beneficial as it might seem to be at first glance.

Secondly, there is a huge possibility to encounter the so-called modified search results by using Search.searchdescargar.com as a default search engine. These modified search results are nothing more than promotional links whose one and only purpose is to increase the traffic rate of particular third-party websites. Links leading to hardly trustworthy websites might be shown to you too. In the opinion of researchers, it is not very likely that ordinary users will recognize ads and be able to avoid them, which means that anyone using Search.searchdescargar.com to search for the information on the web are at risk. Of course, the majority of search results will be decent Yahoo! search results, but you might click one day on any of these sponsored search results too.
