You say that the crooks behind Adrozek are paid for each click on their "weird-looking" web links, and you show a screenshot of these links, which appear to be Xbox pages. Are those payments coming from Xbox? I mean, if you assume that their income is derived from the companies that show up in the search, it would be pretty easy to "follow the money" and find out who the crooks are. Or are the weird links themselves to fake pages? Just curious...

Those links aren't legit Xbox links and they are not paid by Xbox. The links are to fake websites pretending to be Xbox. Probably serving more malware. The 'download and download free' is a warning sign' as Xbox and Microsoft would never advertise like this.
