But a lot of random queries I do as a searcher are bringing up results that are either badly mismatched or seem random.
I noticed the same thing a couple of days ago when I was searching for health-related information. Instead of the usual in-depth pages from the Mayo Clinic, WebMD, and other trustworthy sources, the top 10 search results were dominated by forum threads and pages written by amateurs or quacks. It was almost as if Google had turned the "subject authority" dial down to zero just to see what might happen.
