What does Syndicated traffic mean?

In Traffic by Search Engine, you may see the result Syndicated. Search Syndication stands for 3rd party domains held by companies that have a search revenue share contract with search engine providers (e.g., Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex, Baidu, etc.).

These 3rd party companies distribute different software-like extensions, toolbars, desktop apps, etc., and change the user's search pages to their own search domain (i.e., changing the user's default search, new tab, or the home page on the user's browser).
