I just feel that I have been searching for things online for the same way for too long. There have been no major strides taken in my opinion. Google has reduced some spam but I have always been able to get through it anyway. I find when searching for long tail phrases like a sentence with 10+ words, I can never find what I am looking for which should be the opposite since I am being very specific, but google does not want to show exact matches for my sentences because they feel those websites are trying to game their system.
I have my own methods of searching to find what I want and I am very good at it because I have been doing it pretty much every day for the last 15 or so years. We are walking around with computers in our pocket, why are we still using search engines that are stuck in the 90's?
You know how we all know that google even knows that it has a hard time displaying relevant results? Because its still displaying over 20 pages of results for even specific search terms. If I was a search engine, I would take it personally that my users have to dig through that many pages to get what they want.
