So it looks like they're going to hard-code SERPs for a dozen of searches :)
Well they've failed for years with these (and many other SERPs) - currently I see two hacked sites on google.com for the "v-word" drug. No message from Google that these sites may be compromised, but clearly compromised, and ranking in the top 10. A high likelihood that such sites will also carry a virus or two as well. So yeah, maybe they might as well hardcode these results since the algo is nothing but a blindman judging a beauty competition, relying on hearsay from other sources.
