driller41, Did I say use Bing? No. Not at all. So it's not a "Google is broken try Bing" thread is it? Why do so many people's only contribution to a thread make negative sweeping comments about a genuine post? Why do some people not even bother to read it and then make generalised negative statements rather than actually bother to put their contribution and experience to it?
I also didn't ask if webmasters use google to search - of course they do. I wasn't moaning about Google from a webmaster point of view.
I gave a real life situation where I honestly struggled to get any depth for a really simple information based query. Depth is my issue - yes i got a few relevant results at the top but after that, a wasteland of results.
My point was it was a while since I used Google to search for this type of query and was pretty staggered by the lack of any type of useful info - I was asking has anyone else noticed this change?
I actually went to the library and got a book. Sometimes the simple solutions are the best.
