@tigger that's what a lot of people are seeing. On page 1 of the UK results for one of my terms a 1980s style pixelated image holds the number 2 spot...it is on the first page on .com as well.
This is in conjunction with outdated news stories and spammy sites full of heavily spun (gibberish) content.
I think everyone is agreed that these results are not permanent but unfortunately they seem to be hanging around for quite awhile which is making some people (including myself) rather nervous.
It could take a fair bit of time for all this to get sorted out but there is nothing we can really do at the minute as no-one knows for sure what exactly is going on.
