Google spam

Amazing. When searching for Knud Olsen Ellingsgaard , I find several pages that are composed of random fragments of real text, mixed with different links, that all redirect to the same site. A site that contains no info whatsoever about Mr. Ellingsgaard. But Google takes the bait.

When an esoteric search like this one is spammed, what search is not? Will we get a web where the majority of text are random quotes, designed to attract the spiders?

Things are getting better. Only one false positive today.

When the random spam generators get the ability to write texts that look convincing, who will need the real stuff?

With limited and mostly non-artificial intelligence I tried to figure out how the spamming was done. Looking through the javascripts connected to the rerouted sites I found no automated redirect (but forgot to check the phps though).Random quotes intended to attract spiders is a well known trick which might be one of the reasons why Google nowadays ignore meta tags.Might this be the end of the Internet as a source of both reliable and questionable information? A recently read book comes to mind: Certain groups might want to 'subverse' reality as we know it ...
