Question

Google results redirecting to google.ad.sgdoubleclick.net - why?

Occasionally when I search with google, the resulting leads redirect me to a page that cannot load. the message is " Firefox can't find the server at google.ad.sgdoubleclick.net." Why does it redirect me to google.ad instead of the website listed in the search results? It doesn't happen every time, just occasionally. I check the URL, and the results are produced by google. When I hover over a link, it says the URL of the search result destination, but when I click, it takes me to something like http://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/nclk?sa=L&ai=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com.au%2Furl%3Fsa%3Dt%26source%3Dweb%26cd%3D4%26ved%3D0CCsQFjAD%26url%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.filebuzz.com%252Ffindsoftware%252FWp_S1_Pcsync%252F1.html%26ei%3DUa-FTMG5ENS2ccGr1J4I%26usg%3DAFQjCNF4-LBAk--WaNW33h1ia6T8kA4poA%26sig2%3D-TIUhZx2AMAZfLa6GthCIA
