The search results just aren't that good. They have been better, much better.
That is very true. It's no secret here that I'm not a fan of google at all. But it wasn't always that way. In fact part of my decision to to venture out on my own as a developer was because I realized how much I thought like google or they thought like me (years ago). They used to produce very accurate results, amazingly so even. I realized I could work within their philosophy easily and build effective sites while relying on them to bring seekers of knowledge to meaningful content.
But then something changed drastically, probably a number of things, some of it motivated by $$$, some of it political, but I think mostly EGO.
If they would clean up their sad act and stop chasing people around to figure out if they had corn for dinner yesterday I would probably warm back up to them. But that's not likely to happen so instead I would rather be in a position to buy them out and shut them down. And that's not likely to happen either :)
