been a gradual slope to shit, but that slope has
exponentially risen the past year. It's bad. I can't find an
article that was pretty damn specific that came out a few
months ago. Almost like google didn't want the information
to spread. This is worse than the search engines of the 90s
before google came around. Fix this shit nerds! You are the
21st century soldiers of freedom.

bing images is 100x better than anything else. The tagging

here. I wanted to read up on some missile defense system
that Trump was funding, or increasing scope or
something, I google "Trump missile system" and the top 5
results are liberal media hit pieces on how some random
dope doesn't think Trump is qualified to have control of
the nukes. I "bing" it? That's awkward, and I get maybe
one hit piece and the second result was what I was
looking for. I still don't love it, but it's maybe
better than google now.

an old article somewhere where Microsoft admits
ripping off the first result from Google.
than that I find bing has a lot more ads... At least
I'm not used to them because sometimes I click on them
as I'm so used to ad placement in Google.

tells them things, so that's what they're going to give
them. Shortly after that they started with the featured

don't think SEO applies to all search engines? Of course
it does. Don't be ridiculous. They all look at similar
factors. Naturally they all have their own proprietary
mix, but most of the concepts are the same.
suppose SEO is the reason there are sites that have been
removed from google's listings too eh?

has been floundering for a while. I remember a year or two
ago they completely broke obscure searches you would do by
autocorrecting to what it thought was right and not giving
you a chance to search for your original query.
is going down the path of Apple, where they coast on
existing products for a long time without innovating or
making things better. And the products they coast on
slowly deteriorate (like IOS 11).Give them 5 years, they
will not be in a good position.
[–] ForgotMyName 3 points (+3|-0) 8 hours ago
think it was longer ago than that. It became nearly
useless as a search engine for anything technical. You
do a search on some technical term that it decides is
close to some BS query and suddenly there's no way to
ever search for what you're looking for.

noticed the same thing. For a few years now Google has
stunk. Try to find something to do with sexuality, and all
you get are porn sites, or sites that pretend to be search
engines. On top of that, Google has decided to turn SJW
and refuse to list sites whose politics or social opinions
they disagree with. They are shit.

never seen that. I had no problem running the same

is partnered with yahoo, so yeah, there is.
[–] wecanhelp 1 points (+1|-0) 1.9 hours ago
that is true, according to DuckDuckGo, this
partnership doesn't compromise the privacy they
promise. They use Yahoo! both as one of their sources for
search results (along with Bing and Yandex), and as an advertising partner
(along with Bing, and in some form eBay and Amazon)
which, according to their help article, they don't
provide with user data, merely the search query
long as that really is the case, there is no practical
reason – only ideological – to avoid DuckDuckGo, and I
find it somewhat reassuring that they're this
transparent about their revenue model even if the very
fact of these names being associated with them is
enough for some to avoid them. Of course, making a
decision based on all this assumes trust in
DuckDuckGo, but then again, it's the same with
everyone else on the internet.

seen several headlines recently about their concern these
days with how to rank articles with any political leaning.
Judging by YouTube and Twitter, it's a sure bet they are
hard at work pozzing their algorithms unrecognizably. I've
tried startpage, ixquick, and duckduckgo. I think the
former is best as far as features working like you expect
from a google search results page, but it uses google's
results directly, so that must be kept in mind.
ixquick the search capabilities are more customizable, but
the interface is clunky.
DDG nothing about it is top notch.

I tried to find the clip of donald trump overtly implying

presstitutes trying to coax him to say it. I've forgotten
which ones were interviewing him, they begin to all blend
together after a while. He kept saying "You know who it
is... No no, you know."

like how i look for tickets to a gig first and get the

and maybe not even get in service as the first hit with a
tiny little [ad] next
to it, i didnt read too good at first which is my bad in
the first place and it looked like it had linked directly to
the artists page, telling me there were half a dozen
tickets available (actually a reasonable assumption) until
i saw the url and noped the fuck out.
two was the official ticketing site link hit directly from
the (artist) (venue) (date) query, showing me no i dont
have to rush buy diddly shit.

near everything. It is not politics. Google search
simply no longer functions properly for anything. For
example, I was looking for a person I knew years ago who
had been convicted of a crime. Let's call him Reginald
Clarkson. Searching for
Reginald Clarkson conviction
not one single useful result, and I checked the first
theory, Google has an "intext" modifier that only
returns results that contain the specified words.
However, searching for
intext:Reginald intext:Clarkson intext:conviction
failed to return any useful results at all. In fact, all
of the results were missing at least one specified word,
most were missing two words, and some had not a single
search word. Not one fucking word! Google has
degenerated so far that the search function essentially
returns a random list of pages.
eventually found the town where he lives (which we will
call Yaster) and the search
Reginald Clarkson Yaster guilty
started returning old newspaper articles about his
is completely unacceptable. It should not take an hour
of frustrating puzzle-solving to find newspaper articles
with very distinctive words.
obviously has severe management problems. Their premier
product has stopped working and no one in charge has
noticed. They need to go through the ranks with a
flaming sword cutting out rot. I suspect that a bunch of
social justice warriors have taken over and are playing
mind games instead of working.

use ecosia, bing, duckduckgo, and startpage all regularly.
I often have very specific questions about software or
health issues or something. I hate it, but after I try the
rest, I often find Google is right there, with the right
answer at the top of the search. It's like they have a
deeper or more up to date reach into forums and such.
