Things are getting a lot worse. Google seems to be pushing Brand names even more than ever to the top. They are totally saturating the SERPs, much like listings used to in old SE Inktomi in the 90s. I am noticing the first 9 out of 10 listings belonging to one domain, with the first two listings each having 4 site links. Then they have another 9 listings between results 10 and 20.
Another example had 19 out of the first 20 from the same domain with the first listing having 6 sitelinks..
