Finding Stuff on Google
For all of you who are asking why Google would abandon one of the very best research tools, the answer is obvious. Since 2010. Google has not cared at all about research or websearch: Only 4% or less of any search, whether it's Web or Shopping or Images or News, will ever show up anymore. How can you people actually think that Google is still interested in helping research? Their interest and time has shifted to creating Doodles, jamming as many ads as possible onto every webpage and YouTube page, and making as much money out of the web as they possibly can. Google is publically traded, and their only concern is maximizing profits and keeping a pleasant public profile. Not in internet search. You can't possibly think that when you can't view more than 4% of your search results.
