Google redirect after clicking on message board result?

2 posts in this topic


I do not know where to post this so I apologize if it is in the wrong sub-forum.

I just came across something that has never happened to me before. I Googled something and when I clicked on one of the results (a thread on a message board), the page loaded, but another tab opened from "" I didn't see what the page said because I tried to exit the tab immediately. When I tried to exit, a smaller box popped up and asked me if I wanted to take a survey. I clicked "no," and immediately did a quick scan with MalwareBytes. It came back clean, but I'm still slightly worried and confused. What is and why would it redirect me from a link to a message board? Is it a virus? No other redirects happened today; just the one on the message board.
