Tell your friends:
Webplains.net belongs to a category of websites that are usually defined as browser hijackers but actually it's just a part of very well organized scheme to capitalize on the success of legitimate search engines. The website is not malicious but it has a very poor reputation on mywot.com and traffic is also very suspiciously high for a site that has only four backlinks, according to Alexa. Besides, domain webplains.net belongs to "Onwa Ltd." This company was previously involved in selling and monetizing stolen clicks, according to Trend Micro. The following domains belong to this company and can be used to hijack search results as well:
  • Thenewstoday.net
  • Thewebtimes.net
  • Newsranch.net
  • Frontwebpage.net
  • Thenightrain.com

  • 101news.net
  • Businessite.net
  • Bywill.net
  • Goingonearth.com
  • Webplains.net
  • Whatsinnews.com
  • Whatsinstores.net
Such browser hijackers as webplains.net are very popular because search result clicks convert well.
