In order to protect Internet searchers, Google set up a notice to warn users that they are visiting a new page when being redirected from the Google search URL. From here a user can see that the browser is redirecting them, and can choose to visit the site or return to the Google search page. Unfortunately, occasionally this notice may appear each time you click on a search result in Google, making it frustrating to search for anything through Google. If you get the Google redirect notice constantly, you can clear your Internet browser cache and cookies to resolve the issue.
