dipberry i think you are hitting the nail there. Pretty much keep adding something new and random for no purpose other than it keeps anyone trying to make money from their serps chasing their tail when only the sites they want to rank get a freedom pass. Its easier than actually trying to get the algo right to simply rank the right sites, they gave that up long time ago when it was never ending game and new spam just replaced old spam. What you have now are a bunch of guys who themselves are deciding what kind of sites THEY (personally) want to see and setting the many algo's and bolt-on's to achieve that aim.
