@tedster - Yup it does sounds like it, but only hit here in the UK in the last few days. Whatever it is, the quality has taken a nose dive - seeing results for places *miles* from the correct one. Algorithms no substitute for local knowledge.
I've looked outside my niche as well; things are getting worse and worse - simple queries for technical queries ("what does this PHP error message mean" type things) etc throwing up absolute garbage.
