I am browsing for shelving, and in the google "Sponsored Links" pane to the right of screen there is a listing for www.ikea.com.

It is marked red for privacy, and orange in all other fields

Now some of us may have thoughts about Ikea, but a negative WOT rating? \

If I type in www.ikea.com in the address bar, there is no trouble.

All jokes aside, there is another listing for www.dexion.com, and that is also rated exactly the same.

Any ideas?

It's not really Ikea. ;)
If I search for Ikea, in google sponsored links, I get ikeausa.info which I am almost positive is NOT legitimate.
I don't know what you are searching for exactly, so I can't be certain.

Google search for "Shelving"

[url=http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=shelving t=_self]Google search for "Shelving"[/url] produced no results anywhere on the page for ikea.com

As you can see in your own post:
[url=http://www.google.com/#hl=en&q=shelving t=_self]ikea.com[/url]
[url=http://www.mywot.com/scorecard/dexion.com t=_self]dexion.com[/url]
are not the same, rating-wise.

What could be the same is that the right-side bar is sponsored links, aka; they can be linked from advertising websites. Not many ad sites are highly rated in WOT, so you would see their ratings for the links, not the destination site.

"I am browsing for shelving..."

Search engines no longer deliver exactly the same results independent of your location. And why should they; it does matter what part of the world you live in, this country or that. That's why we wont necessarily get the same results as you, even using the same search word: "shelving"...

An example, as I don't live in USA but Scandinavia,
it wouldn't make sense to offer "ikeausa.info".
But if I was american, it would...
