Myspace sneaking into Google search results?

I was doing some research on the music website Bandcamp and decided to search for information on how many users it had. Upon searching for "Bandcamp million users" a funny thing happened... Every single result was one for Myspace, and none even mentioned Bandcamp. What's going on here??


71,600 results for that query but add in -myspace and you get over 200,000 - double weird https://www.google.co.uk/#hl=en&spell=1&q=bandcamp+m...

How strange. Google even highlights the term MySpace in the results as if it was one of the search terms.

Could be that Bandcamp or MySpace has become a synonym of the other (in Google's index)? As far as I'm aware, this sort of paring is done automatically.

Yea very strange - why is MySpace highlighted as a keyword, something going on here!

Because the enemy (MySpace) of your enemy (Facebook) is your friend.
