Clicked a Bad Link in a Google Search (or: not the boys and girls club we all know and love)

I clicked on a bad link while searching for tarot information. I googled Queen of Pentacles and accidentally clicked on a result for BGCMD.org titled “Dating Queen of Pentacles”. I was taken to a VERY suspicious site with a pornographic gif and immediately exited out of it. I’m sure this happens a lot to people but I’ve never had it happen to me. I ran a malware scanner (Kapersky) and everything seems fine but I was quite shaken. I have two concerns:

1. Is there anything else I should do? The scan came back fine but I can’t help but feel worried.

2. What’s with the BGCMD.org listing? Apart from the “Dating Queen of Pentacles” title and the text preview, it’s identical to the listing for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver. It even has the same site logo. It’s especially weird to me because generally when I google tarot things, the top listing is for Biddy Tarot, and this just popped up at the top out of nowhere. Maybe this whole post is just showing what a rube I am with tech/internet things, but I’m really curious about this and would love if someone had something to add
