I know Avast comes with a web reputation guide available with their free anti-virus product that rates every website, both the links that show up in Google (not sure about other search engines), and the pages themselves when you visit them. Browser plugins like NoScript make sure no scripts run from a given domain until you whitelist them, and when combined with Avast's web reputation, that's a nice combo.

And last I heard, more malware was spread through online advertising than downloading porn. The message in there isn't a thumbs up for porn, it's that administrators of websites that support their sites through advertising need to be proactive in vetting the advertisers they allow to place ads on their websites.
