Google Search Results Links Hijacked?

I'm trying to understand a new problem I have run into with my iPad. Recent google searches have not been able to direct me to the link given by google. Almost all results are redirected once they are clicked on. I would understand if these were some of the smaller less reputible websites but this is happening with pages like Cnet. Has anyone else run into these problems?

Google Search Links Go To Blank Google Page?
I'm on the iPad and do a google search using Safari. Google gives me lots of search results, but no matter which result I click on, the link takes me to a new, empty google search... shouldn't it take me to the page I clicked on? The only way to get to a search result is to manually type the results into the address bar or to copy and paste into the address bar

Not sure if this is a Safari issue, a Google issue or an iPad issue.

Unable To Use Google Search Results
I installed the latest update on my ipad but now when I do a google search, click on a search result and then click the back botton to return to the results, I get a blank screen. So I have to click the back botton again and then the forward botton to get back to the results.

I am having a problem with Google searches on my iPad.If I do a search, Google will bring up the results, but I can't click on any of them, and eventually it redirects to the Google homepage.This problem happens whether I use the Google home page or the search bar.It has only started doing this today.Anyone got any ideas? (Other than using a different search engine )

Youtube - Why No Option To Order Search Results?
I've tested both the App version and the direct Safari version of Youtube and neither allows me to sort the search results. I would like to see the newest videos first. So when I am looking for an artist or a product I want to see the newest videos first and not the old or random ones. This is a BASIC and ESSENTIAL function.I've checked it with Youtube for iPhone and it also does not offer this possibility.

Unable To Delete Messages From The Mail Search Results
I just sent this feedback to apple.Does this strike anyone as a bit loony?snip! As with the iPhone.. there is no way to delete an e-mail from the search results. eg. go to your inbox.. search your inbox for a sender or subject or something.. In the results screen there's no "Edit" button to do batch deletes.. there's no way to swipe delete and when you actually click on the mail to read it the trash icon is greyed out. Why is this? It makes absolutely no sense at all.

IPad 2 Google Search Won't Allow To Search Anything?
I don't know if anyone is experiencing this issue, but when I go on Google's website on Safari, it does not allow me to search or enter anything. I type stuff in the box field, but when I hit 'search' on the pop-up keyboard or press 'search google' on the page, nothing happens. It works the first time but when you want to type something else, it doesn't allow to enter that search term.I think it may be a minor software bug or maybe Google in my local area is experiencing technical difficulties?

While doing a search on computers, one of my search results came with porn ads. I have never ever seen this happen before on the iPad or in OS X. I have all the proper setting. I was in shock for this crap to appear, especially from a google search. Anyone else had any type of ads pop up?

Google Search Not Working?
When I search for something on Google, the search results would appear as normal. When I clicked a link for a website, the browser just stayed on the same Google search page. It acted like it was connecting and opening the site but never went there. If I typed the address directly in the address bar the site would open. I opened some other tabs and Google search worked fine. I closed those tabs and everything then seemed to be back to normal.

Hacked My Google Account For Search?
Went back to my history through google history to remember the name of an artist I looked up..

Noticed a search was done at 6:57 am on Saturday for "masturbate". Only myself and girl home and both sleeping. Prior search was at 9ish prior night, and around 2pm that day.

I don't think anyone has logged in or hacked my google account as no weird sent mail or anything else out the norm..

Google Search Feature Not Working On It?
Every time I try to search on google I get the "catcha".? Screen.Where it wants me to enter the word shown.When I enter the word it keeps on giving me another. Ultimately I can no longer search on google. I can search on other search engines though such as yahoo. This just started, and in case it is important, I recently added a yahoo email account. I read somewhere else on my quest to figure this out that there may be some connection. Are there viruses or malware that could be causing this?

Freeze Browser From Pop-ups From
Since yesterday, I have been having pop-ups from sprouting up randomly, which proceed to freeze my browser. At first I was only getting them on Twitter, so I figured maybe it was just a problem they were having, but today I've gotten them visiting other sites, as well. I did a search about google-analytics and found that apparently it is malware. Has anyone else experienced this using iPad? I can't find a way to use a virus scan and there does not seem to be any virus protection available.

Google Search Bar Goes Blank Almost Every Time I Type Into It - Can't Download Apps ?
Am having lots of issues to the point of almost giving up on it and selling it. Most recent for acouple of weeks, google search bar goes blank almost every time I type into it. Bing works! so I set safari preferences to use Bing, but it still uses google, even after I've typed in a phrase on Bing gone to a site on bing, it will revert back to google search. Now tonite it took me to results on Bing, I clicked on a site and it took me to a Yahoo search page.

Second problem for about a month now can't download apps. It says to connect to your computer and go to ITunes on your computer. sometimes it says app has loaded but won't be available til you go to ITunes on your computer.

Third, lots of problems using Netflix, which is what I got this for. Can't access queu, can't manage queu, takes nine or ten attempts to get anythhing to happen, and Always drops toward tthe end of the movie. Then 8 have to go back thru all the steps to bring up the same movie or show again. Lots of freezing up online. Im using Airport Extreme with latest software version.

Stop Or Delete An Unwanted Install - FB Account Had Been Hijacked
Alright, I'm officially an idiot. I got a facebook email from a good friend and even though the message was odd I clicked on the link before thinking and it took me to some weird site. I emailed him and asked him about it and he said the email had not come from him but that his FB account had been hijacked. Had I been on my MacBook Pro, I would know if something had tried to install but I was on my iPad. As far as I know nothing tried to install and nothing seemed to happen when I clicked on the link, but I want to be sure. So how do I go about checking for inadvertent installs? Do you get a warning like on a regular computer? There is no admin password required on ipads to install stuff so how do you stop or delete an unwanted install? Or is this not an issue on ipads?
