Anyone else noticed that google is getting thicker with its searches? It used to give pages of good results, for months now I'm lucky to get 2 pages sometimes. Its become useless for anything non mainstream. Its become crap for searching keywords in this site too.

Have you tried googling that?  Smiley. Agreed it is a complete shit show.  It is the same with YouTube searches.  It’s most likely political.  Try using quotation marks in the google search bar it might help.  e.g… “i” “would” “like” “to” “know” “why” “google” “sucks”

I haven't as yet looked into it.

It used to be pretty good at searching here, as the local search feature is also crappy.

I tried as a test
"prj" site:www.nefariousmotorsports.com
5 hits produced
"nyet" is more prolific, a whopping 25 posts.

But  honestly, google is so bad at searching anything that Im getting scared that something big is brewing. Altavista 30 years ago gave me more hits. Its got to be something political alright. It all seemed to happen a few months ago only.
Edit:
 I just tried Bing- It's infinitely better!

blablbab site:www.nefariousmotorsports.com usually works for me but indeed it does not seem to like usernames,if you want posts by a specific user you can go on their profile.


Try DuckDuckGo for neutral search engine.

I second duckduckgo. Way more privacy options and works pretty good.
