More traffic helps pages as more people are likely to interact with the adverts. Those pages are oftentimes rather obvious because they evidently have little to do with what you were initially looking for. Some of the results could seem legitimate at first but if you are attentive, you should be able to differentiate them. Be cautious as some of those web pages might even be malicious. In addition, the redirect virus might follow your browsing and collect certain type of data about you.
