I have spend the last few days running test searches for products, for services, and for information.
I can confirm that I struggled to find the information. Without doubt, if you know what you're looking for, Google finds it, but if you don't know what the exact search phrase is, or the exact product code, you have to search again. Even searching for unusual products and services I ended up having to keep searching.
It's clear to me that with the Panda update, it's not working efficiently as a search tool.
Oh, and the UK serps are a mess of international stuff. It's pretty much useless for me.
I know, that sounds harsh, but it's the result of searching for genuine product and services.
One thing i've yet to analyse is whether the state of the organic serps is driving more adwords clicks.
Oh, and in fairness, I did the same searches on bing and I found the information with fewer searches. :0
