In this blog post I am going to talk about Google.
We all lived a time when Google was a “good” search engine in sense you searched for something and you were going to get what you searched.
I think these times are finished and Google is now a spam as search results platform which destroys all competence in internet that is not who pays more to Google to get promoted.
Tech guys and privacy concerned individuals are likely not get the same viewpoint of that unless they look at the search result of less tech savy users like probably their grandmothers or grandfathers.
I saw users where all the first page of results was only promoted content on searchs like “Duolingo”, spam of every kind, from competitors to phishing webpages, everything but what you searched for.
I think as users we should advocate for descentralization to avoid those situations arising again.
Searx is a good alternative since you can implement it “at home” or use a instance from a user you trust.
