Some unbelievably spammy junk entered the SERPs in my niche yesterday, (totally irrelevant sites redirecting to lists of links) joining other junk with thousands of injected links that's been in high positions for two months now. Brands continue their inexorable march to world domination but that was expected of course.
How to make a fortune: compromise thousands of sites using certain vulnerable CMSs and insert the spammiest of links. Google's algo doesn't seem able, at the moment, to realise that new web sites don't naturally go from zero to ten thousand links within days so success is assured.
If this is progress heaven help us.
