I use search engines to look up everything. Recipes, news, info on whatever interest me at the moment, everything can be found at after typing a few words in the search bar. Since it’s become commonplace to use search engines, hackers look for ways to exploit this habit. Typing popular keywords can return even risky sites in the first pages results, since search engines have little to no filtering security measures being implemented. Sites with sponsored ads are even more likely to contain embedded adware and trojans. Though search engines may have advertising policies and listing and ranking rules about which sites show up in their search results, it’s up to the user’s good judgment to select what sites they will visit.
