These modified Yahoo! search results will not open pages with the information you are searching for because they are shown to users just to promote certain third-party pages. The chances are high that Polarity Technologies Ltd., the company that has developed, gets the advertising revenue from these pages. The main problem with these modified search results is that they might promote corrupted pages too, so users who do not want to end up with undesirable software on their computers should not click on these search results.
