  • Anyone Else Notice How Ineffective Google Has Become For Searches?

    It wasn't all that long ago that I could simply type a product number, even for the most obscure, ancient piece of gear and would get plenty of results. Now many of the same searches bring up zero... nada... zip... nothing at all. When did this purge start and what are some better search engines?

    Yes and they're all the same. Marketers are getting better at snagging (cooking?) queries. Finding anything now requires investigator chops. If you don't have Google Plus Ultra and check past 2,000 pages it never happened.

      For a couple of years now I've been using Yahoo for any sort of technical inquiries. Google is worse than useless.

        It's even worse than I thought when I really tried to dig for some things... image search for class rings and jackets from my old high school, old rifle scopes, various music equipment. No results at all. It's like half the Internet went missing. I could always find this kind of stuff in like 10 seconds. I'll give yahoo another try, but it was google that did so well at first and wooed me away from everything else.
