Blackhat hacking unrelated sites to show?

I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen this happen (constantly)? On Google's SERPs, there are websites that are totally unrelated to my search with spam keywords in title and description and they rank on the first 2 pages. Some of them are legit sites (when I click through, I see a normal page, but with the cached version I see the spammed keywords).

These are screens of SERP of auto insurance new york

They do disappear after a while, but they keep popping up and occupying spots. Is reporting them to Google the only way?

    You are doing what many people do. You are searching for spammed
    results, and getting *voila* spammed results!

    You are NOT searching for just auto insurance new york.

    Now you know what NOT to do with your own websites.


    If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

    Paul, chill. I was looking at that keyword and just came across that/similar site (on the first 2 page of the SERPs). If you don't believe me, you can do a search yourself for that and you'll see it on the 1st page too.

    I obviously won't hack my own/someone else's site and spam keywords. Was just wondering if this was common or not?
