Google flagging 9,500 malicious sites every day

Quote:
In a blog post that marks the five-year anniversary of Safe Browsing, Provos provided some highlights:

    We protect 600 million users through built-in protection for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, where we show several million warnings every day to Internet users. You may have seen our telltale red warnings pop up — when you do, please don’t go to sites we’ve flagged for malware or phishing. Our free and public Safe Browsing API allows other organizations to keep their users safe by using the data we’ve compiled.

    We find about 9,500 new malicious websites every day. These are either innocent websites that have been compromised by malware authors, or others that are built specifically for malware distribution or phishing. While we flag many sites daily, we strive for high quality and have had only a handful of false positives.

At that rate it would be 3,467,500 bad sites marked in a year. Does that not seem like too much?

But the very bad thing is that many of these sites are ordinary sites
from companies none have any reason to think of as to be vulnerable
of such evil things. Ad Links from ordinary News Mags and Tabloids
that many read daily. Sites about religion or politics and so on.

One would expect such from political hate speech or porn sites
or other such sites that many warns about that can have evil code.

State instution and Help organisations and so on can be infected
and not knowing about it. Blog pages and such that none expect
to be dangerous.

You can use a non-bubble search engine such as duckduckgo

I prefer not to be bothered by google sponsored interference (not exactly evil but annoying)

I use this one instead of DDGO
https://www.startpage.com/
or this one for some science or academic search?
http://www.kvasir.no/
and what about this one http://www.dogpile.com/
is that one less good compared to DDG?

What I like about Google is that they do warn about malicious code.
Does the other search engines do that? Apart from that I hate how Google
and FaceBook invade our privacy. But on the other hand. Google do give
best result for some searches and that they warn about bad code is a good thing.
