Absolutely! I reckon that a unique company name should show up FIRST in the results. And I mean a unique name, not like the example you quoted. If a company is in the index and someone searches for the company name it is almost certain that the searcher would like to see their website. This is a no brainer for anyone but Google at present.
It also hurts genuine people who have created real informational websites that deserve to be seen by those who are searching for the content they include. Please don't try to justify the sandbox. There is no justification for what they are doing and who says that it was created to minimise spam?
During the last four months I have created two excellent websites myself as a labour of love. The feedback I have received from these has been 100% complimentary. I did all the web design, copy and research at no charge because both sites are for private clubs and both are are about subjects that I know about and qualified to write about. Google makes them invisible and that is sad. One of these sites has an absolutely unique name and when you search for it it is nowhere to be found.
As far as I can see Allegra did nothing to address this.
