Wouldn't you say that in the spirit of business, "Google bombing" is a pretty smart idea?

It is annoying, but I think it will be difficult for Google to correct it. Not that I know anything about it, but I recently read a Time Magazine article about Google and its competitors, and it gave as a reason for Google's success a complex mathematical formula of some sort that enables the engine to sort the pages in order of popularity; now, the owners of 'commercial junk' sites need not understand the formula (which remains secret), just how to make use of it to their advantage.
