I think one of the reasons so many spam sites are near the top again....drums...they must have ingested a ton of spam sites into the algo. Now we do the dance of waiting a fee days while results suffer. When my friend was doing that search Saturday he was looking for sites like linkedin. That site didn't appear but was replaced with a hijacked site offering a bad request 500 page. I waited a week to post and for the week it has been in the top 5 as a defunct site.
