It's simple. I appreciate this aspect of Google.
I understand Google's take on this back from the days when Malware writers would make Drive-by Malware downloads in non competitive niches. Then build thousands of links to those sites and hit page 1 in days.
I would say this building trust part of the algorithm is awesome! They probably save more computers then Norton by doing this.
