Why not use mainstream search engines?

There are a number of reasons why we should not use mainstream search engines. First, using a search engine that is not decentralized puts our information at risk. Other search engines have been caught tracking users’ information and selling it to third-party companies, so using them as our search engine means that we are giving away our personal data. By knowing your search habits based on past activity they send you personalized content and ads. They actively measure audience engagement and site ad serving is based on this.

Additionally, they have been known to manipulate its search results in order to favor its own products and services.

Additionally it is not a secret that most of the search engines censor information that they do not agree with. It is quite common that they remove articles from its search results that are deemed to be inaccurate or false. This can be a major problem for people who are looking for accurate information online, as they may not be able to find it if it is hidden by the search engines.

By using a decentralized search engine like Presearch, we can be sure that our information is protected and that the results we see are unbiased.

Is Presearch decentralized search engine better than the privacy focused DuckDuck Go?

Presearch is similar to DuckDuck Go in that it does not use cookies and data trackers, does not show ads based on past search history and does not sell users’ information to third-party companies.

The main and most important reason to use Presearch instead of DuckDuck Go is information censorship and downgrading certain search results. Just like the previously mentioned search engines including DuckDuck Go also censors its results. In addition, it has been known to downgrade search results that it does not agree with. This can be a major problem for people who are looking for accurate information online.


Presearch does not censor its results and allows users to see all of the information that is available on the internet. This is why Presearch is the better choice for those who are looking for an unbiased and accurate search engine.

Additional benefits of using Presearch

First, Presearch allows users to earn rewards for their searches, while DuckDuck Go does not. This means that we can actually make money by using Presearch, which is a great way to passively earn income. Additionally, it has a number of customization options that DuckDuck Go does not have. For example, we can choose which search engines our results come from, and we can also add “search shortcuts” so that we can quickly find the information we are looking for.  Depending on your settings the Presearch mobile browser can have very strict security and privacy settings and will not report engagement and site statistics.

Compared to other crypto node projects, setting up your presearch node software is very easy and straightforward. I managed to install the node software on my VPS within 30 minutes, and I am sure anyone can do it. Presearch will not show personalized ads depending on your search history and is not influenced by things like the content you’re currently viewing or youtube videos you watch.

Another benefit is that in your Presearch web browser settings you can get search results based on general location (Find Results Nearby Based Upon IP Geolocalization)

How to make passive income using Presearch?

Passive income is income that we earn without having to actively work for it. This can be a great way to earn money without having to do much work. Most passive income ideas promoted on the internet are not really passive at all and require some work and time. We tried presearch nodes and yes, once you set it up it is really passive!

Presearch node

A Presearch node requires an initial investment of only $300 worth of PRE tokens and a cheap VPS. It is possible to get a free VPS, that is how I run my nodes. I will explain how to get a free, reliable VPS to run 2 nodes later on.


I have only tried and am actively running a Presearch node on a VPS server. If you have a stable internet connection you have the possibility to run a presearch node from your home on your PC or dedicated device like Rasbery Pi.

How much money can you make with Presearch?

The amount of money you can make with a Presearch node depends on a number of nodes you have and the server location.

To date, I have earned a total of $94 from Presearch. This may not seem like a lot, but it is entirely passive income that requires no effort on my part. In addition, the costs associated with setting up my node are very minimal. My total expenses were purchasing 4000 PRE tokens which cost me approximately $420. I have 2 nodes running on a free VPS server.

Overall, I am very happy with my earnings from Presearch and would recommend it to anyone looking for a way to earn passive income.
