I’m trying to teach myself a new technique (it’s a functional, marketing related thing) and i’m googling for useful articles. As i’m searching, it’s bringing me to a bummer of a realization? Google as a search engine has reached middle age: Bloated, lazy, coasting, going through a midlife crisis. All the ads. Hard to tell what is SEO chum and what is actually good content.
In trying to serve everybody, its not really serving anybody as well as it used to.
In a “meta” exercise, i did some searching and evidently this phenomenon is being seen elsewhere.
