It there a way?
No there isn't anything to look for...by their nature these are malicious software. Well hidden..What about in the source? If I looked through it, is there something to look for?
which is why a program like linkscanner posted by blues_harp28 earlier is either better to use or good to use alongside siteadvisor since it scans the site for exploits in realtime,A website can show up on siteadvisor as green and be temporarily hijacked with malware links.
I ran across a URL that Google linked as a popular PC hardware vendor site (third link). Sitadvisor had it OK. When I went there, it was a "Your PC is Infected! Click Here!" site. The site was fixed a few days later.
So you still need to be careful.
