Default Re: WTF happened to Google?

Maybe you can. Lots of things have caught on to their link-ranking schemes and created farms of websites which do nothing but link to each other, falsely inflating each others' google rankings. This happens a lot with specialized information, like device drivers, manuals, and datasheets. You don't get the manufacturer, you get 9,000 sites probably owned by the same syndicate who all want to sell you a piece of information freely given away by the manufacturer.

But that's besides the point. Google is no longer as attractive as it was, and doesn't seem to much care. If bing wasn't such a piece of garbage, it might actually be competitive now...
