Im pretty confident the update at least for our niche is rolling through. It may be a data merge, more dcs, an algo update, filter update or whatever but something clearly happened. Many results are now better but there are some...where 2 of the top 5 were from hacked domains with temporary spam content much like the pill sites we all see. Also the branding thing seems to have dialed down a bit. They seem to distinguish between a search FOR a brands site versus a search for a brands product.
It's migrating through, would love to know what it was but I doubt we will ever know for sure.
