So, it seems like the hilarious events of June 17 are still 100% in effect.
Google hand edited the search results but did not remove the underlying effects(and the flawed algorithm that punishes US small guys but promotes ebay, wikipedia, amazon and big $$$ brands).
As a result, our good friend Matt Cutts ranks #1 or top 3 for almost any word found on his website + payday loans.
You may check payday loans gadgets or payday loans matt or whatever. The thing is, ANOTHER site was promoted for payday loans, that site was removed by hand from the SERPs, Matt Cutts was then mentioned a lot regarding the episode and.....now mattcutts.com ranks top for payday loans without even having that keyphrase in its text.
Think about how absurd that is. mattcutts.com now ranks for payday loans gadgets. Enough said? Go check it and some variations before they hand edit that too.
