Redirection to unwanted website google search?

I was doing some search on internet on work related topic on work computer today (work computer, from home, during work hours). I clicked on a search result / link that sounded legit, but after few seconds, I have been redirected to a total other website that was a dating site. I after few seconds deleted the google history. I was wondering if the company (if ever scans my traffic) will be able to identify that a similar website during work hours was visited and if so would they be able to see that I was just redirected to the site and did not intentionally search that site on google?

    Deleting the history is a sign of guilt. 

    You should have left everything as it 

    was and notified the IT department 

    about what happened... assuming 

    it actually happened as you say. 

    Yes, they can have server and 

    router logs of the addresses 

    you have visited, regardless 

    of the history in your browser.
