Thumbs down The downfall of Google

Do these results seem fishy to you? http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...=Google+Search

Companies are doing something called "Google bombing" to get listed higher in the rankings. The end result? You get way too many commercial listings instead of legit results. Check this out: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/1868395.stm

I sure hope Google can correct this so its results remain reliable and accurate. It would be horrible to see Google crumble. It's branching out into all these areas, even online data services which it launched briefly, and it needs to keep focus on its bread and butter: search.
