Today I detected adware appearing on my websites, after some research, chatting with my web server and checking out other machines it came out that somehow I was invaded by adware that appears on some keywords searching on the internet, wether on my sites or any other.
This is the first time in 4 years since I switched to Mac that this happened.
How can I get rid of this?

Clear your browser's cache and cookies. Install one or more ad blockers. I run several: ClickToFlash (http://hoyois.github.com/safariextensions/clicktoplugin/), Safari AdBlock (http://safariadblock.com/), GlimmerBlocker (http://glimmerblocker.org/) and JavaScript Blocker (http://javascript-blocker.toggleable.com/) are just a few.

If you haven't already done so, try changing your DNS servers on your Mac and your router to OpenDNS servers. This will show you how: Why am I being redirected to other sites? (http://guides.macrumors.com/Mac_Virus/Malware_FAQ#Why_am_I_being_redirected_to_other_sites.3F)
