    What really stands out are results 3,5,7,9. I see no issues with the manufacturer or the information sites.
    However the sites that are nowhere near relevant or do not match the site title are a joke.
    I just used viagra as an example as I have been seeing this across a multitude of keywords and niches.
    I have also tracked this over the past 60 days.

    Everyday I read about someone on the forum getting whacked or deindexed by google for a multitude of stupid reasons.
    Yet shit like the above has gone on for the longest time.

    this just shows how go0gle does not know what they are doing. In general when I search on go0gle- I often go onto the second page to find the best results.
