Google needs to do some house cleaning and stop paid advertisers that have low reliability from advertising in their sponsored ads section. This has been an ongoing issue for years that should have been addressed a long time ago. You would think the most popular search company would filter and monitor its paid advertisers.

The reason why I am writing this article is because a commenter made some valid points from a previous article titled – “Why Google Instant Needs to Address BlackHat SEO.” I would like to thank Clarkson at

Google needs to protect users by eliminating these paid advertisers who pawn their rogue software for profit.

There’s one paid ad (pictured below) in the sponsored section to the right that goes to which is a site that peddles Rogue Antispyware. Rogue software is a scam and its only intent is to steal your money.

Low Reliable Ads

In addition to low reliable paid advertisers, Google needs to de-index and remove suggestive sites that are dangerous from its search as well. When a user is searching for antivirus and they enter the first 5 characters – “ANTIV”, Google suggests sites that sell rogue anti-virus such as Antivir Solution Pro. See image below.

Dangerous Search Results

I highly recommend downloading the WOT (Web of Trust) add-on for IE and/or Firefox. The WOT add-on warns you about risky sites before you click.
