I found a site, currently listed as #2 in Google for at least one term (also #2 on alexa at the moment), that is less than 2 months old (registered; seemingly has had traffic only 3 weeks). It now gets insane traffic, and has made a fortune selling tiny ads at high prices. It has no "content", services, products, or anything worthwhile -- just the novelty of selling the high-priced ad space on its home page. Google shows it has 0PR and no backlinks, but I am sure there are thousands of links. It has already inspired numerous clones, although with lesser success.
