The search engines which are promoted via bundle programs should be used with extra care because sometimes some irrelevant search hits may be presented on the search engine results pages. Very often less famous search engines generate sponsored advertisements or links and display them above the major search results. If you come across such entries, keep in mind that unreliable websites may be promoted in this way, too, which is why it is advisable to remove the unwanted search engine.
