@outland88 and everybody else that is seeing lots of weird results, how do you search? Are you logged in to WMC or any other Google account? Do you use their suggestions? Double quotes?
My guess is that people have gotten so lazy that they almost all the time use Google suggestions, because it is easier and that way Google steer people in to what they want us to search for even though it is not exactly what we wanted but they make more money that way. I am also guessing that Google already have readymade results for their suggested search but if you fall outside the box and do your own search then you are on your own with the crappy results we see a lot of time.
To me google is drifting away on their own corporate island distanced from people/their users and livelyhood. They try to mimic Facebook with their G+ which is nothing but a sad copy and will never take off (just look at how many people have plussed this page here (see below!) and they try to copy everybody elses things too but the most popular sites have come from a user movement and not from a corporate. Google was good when it started but when it grew to what it is today, people are shying away, at least I am. They have too much control and they sneak in on your private things and they know more about you then you can imagine. Who knows, maybe they even recorded you when they did the street view of your house...
Anyway, enough of rambling. It would be interesting to know how we search.
