Google’s head of the web spam division (and thus SEO), Matt Cutts answers:

I think it’s interesting to know that reports you run on a site may not include a rare but highly valuable link. I like that we can go to the forum to inquire about totally odd results.
Have you seen any odd stuff in the Google search results of late?
