Google search useless?

Recommended Posts

Remember the good 'ld days?  You put something you wanted to search in and up pops sites that are directly related to the subject.  Then ads started to show up at the top of the page - 2- sometimes 3.

 

Now today - even if you put the URL in the search the first page has maybe half full of ads - these ads are what, other search engines?  About.com, Ask.com and others.  And when the ads are finished the page is full of some of the same sites as the ads.  How does one get back to getting useful info from Google?  What is a better search engine?

 

Tks - jeb

Hey Jeb, what browser are you using? If Chrome, FireFox or Edge, I highly recommend goin to its respective store and downloading uBlock Origin.
