Google Getting Hard To Use - Bad Results

-- by Dave Johnson

Have you noticed that Google is getting harder to use, and is providing poor results? I seriously need something like the old Google for research -- is there anything out there I can use?

Serious question, need to change I think.

Yes I have noticed this. Over the last several weeks in fact.

Google insists on re-assigning my searches to terms I did not use. And then producing useless results for its assumptions.

And the results are stupid.

Just today I decided to give Bing a shot at a query for which I could not get google to give me anything useful.

Bing gave me vastly different results and the top ones would be more generally useful.

FYI - I have no dog in search engine wars. I use Google by default and almost never use Bing. So my Bing experiment was a fed-up-with-google response.
