"I just can't find anything. "
I agree Scottsonline.
Last week I needed to research and buy some specialized tooling for my company. Out of habit I searched Google. Only showed the same old suppliers I was already familiar with.
Just for fun, went to Bing. WOW! Easily found new sources with great prices.
My opinion as a search user and e-commerce website owner is that Google is loosing it. Google is not a search company - they are an advertising company, and it's obvious that is driving all this nonsense.
Google's main advantage is their name - synonymous with "Search". The average user doesn't know what they are missing, but folks like those on this forum see the biased results. I wonder at what point the average user will wise up.
