Cookies like doubleclick are used to aggregate data across multiple domains, it's kind of like the middleman. Only the domain that has a set a cookie can read that cookie. SiteA cannot access information in SiteB's cookie. Instead when you visit SiteA an ad may be served through a third domain and set a third party cookie, when you visit SiteB who is also allowing the third party to set a cookie they know what your activities were on Site A.

As far as your particular problem are you sure these are not new tabs or new Window?

I've had that happen to me, too, but not frequently. Get into a site and you can click the back button a million times, and you remain locked on the same page. You have to go to History in order to get back where you had been.

In that case they used a meta refresh on intermediate page.

Click link to intermediate page >> intermedite page redirects to second page


Now your stuck in a loop because when you click the back button it takes you to the intermediate page which immediately redirects you back to the page you're trying to browse away from. By clicking it fast the intermediate page never has a chance to load.

Usually redirections are done at the server level with HTTP headers and no page is sent, the browser does not include the redirection in your history. On the other hand a meta refresh is in the header of the HTML document itself. A meta refresh could be used by a site to trap someone there but it's also possible a novice has used it as a "poor mans" version of redirection without understanding the consequences becsue it's easy to implement .

For the most part when I click on a link in Google I get this page if the link has a yellow ad icon next to it. I don't if I click one without.

Ads have become one of the largest vectors for malware. It's sad, really. I miss when most websites were not monetized to death by ads everywhere.

One of the things I've noticed in the last couple of years is the move from having an article on one page to breaking it up into several pages when one would have been ideal. They do this to force more ads your way.

Since the first ad malware surfaced, I now block all ads, 1st/3rd-party cookies except my bank and a couple of other sites. I run Adblock Plus, Disconnect, and Referrer Control (Google Chrome). No ads, no tracking, just right. YMMV.
