Search results are getting safer

search resultsIt seems like the world of search is getting a bit safer after all. SiteAdvisor has reported that search engines linked to 12% fewer sites that showed risky content, as deemed by McAfee. The report also found that search results by Google, AOL and Ask are far less likely to contain risky leads like MSN and Yahoo!. Some surprising results, though, were that paid results in search engines were actually responsible for linking out to 8% of risky content. McAfee SiteAdvisor used numbers and searches from a May 2006 survey, and completed the same search last month and found that AOL took the safest honors, while Ask showed the biggest improvements.
