Well there's tens of millions, maybe billions, of spammy backlinks on the web, most of them created because of Google. Not to mention all of the associated spammy content, such as blog comments and article sites. It's a huge rancid morass that even if it suddenly stopped expanding, would take a hundred years to decay away. The good parts of the web will have to overcome Google in order to pull themselves out of the muck.
