    arstechnica are late as frick with stories lately
    shit had SEOmonkeys and parasites seething all last week after finding out that *shock* Google was lying to them

    Their biggest pain? That google favors established brand names over anything else. It doesn't matter how much you shill your air conditioner if it's not on NYTimes 5 BEST AIR CONDITIONERS list it's not getting any clicks.

        The way they're destroying SEO is by just always favoring the existing big sites, not letting new stuff rise to the top.

      This is obvious to anyone who even accidentally uses google once before switching to a decent search engine after installing a new browser. If that's surprising to an SEO expert then that whole industry is a fraud.

            Google being dogshit doesn't make other major search engines magically better you chimp brained subhuman troglodyte. They're all garbage, and they're all getting worse at an equal rate, and you pretending otherwise is revolting. Repent to Jesus Christ for your disgusting behavior before it's too late and you're deservedly sent to the lake of fire, profligate scum.

            Calm down brother in Christ, I agree with you that they are all getting worse. I just find that any other search engine seems (at least to me) give closer responses to what I ask for. perhaps they still manage "google-fu" like queries rather then the "just type a fricking sentence now normie" that google is pushing?

            you are in the thread with literal proof that forign-born street shitters are literally to blame and youare still deflecting

            Except that Google lied to Congress on this matter. It likely has no implications ATM, but it's more ammo if Google ever has to send people up for a grilling. Of course nothing will really come from it.

            the current government wont punish its own shabbos goyim, but a future one might. i dont care about trump winning in 2024, but i think it would be hilarious if he did. hes such a vindictive frick he might actually do something about this kind of thing.

            But these leaked documents show Google is purposely amplifying the reach of already-existing brands, resulting in increased consolidation. The people just went wherever Google took them.

          Kagi is pretty good, but you‘ll have to pay.
          Aside from that… noticed your/out goal? So if there is no decent search engine, why not create a FOSS one?
          You don‘t need Googles capacity for high availability and each end every site/topic you aren‘t interested anyway

        Congress are the funniest frickers. They "grill" people by asking softball questions that are easy to weasel out of, then let them go and that's the end of it. When's the last time someone grilled by Congress actually got punished?

            if he ever sees jailtime it'll be a comfy "prison" full of amenities and freedom. the only real justice would be a breaking on the wheel in the town square, or at least the shithole prisons the plebs go to, otherwise it's mostly worthless. ideally those prisons for plebs wouldn't be shit but if they're going to be then there is no justice til a wealthy life destroyer gets his cornhole destroyed by his cellmate. nothingburger.

            Yes? There is a wide range of freedom between solitary confinement in a small room and having a comfy building where you can freely wander around and contact anyone you want and have anything you want delivered to you.

            No, it is precisely free as in free speech. It's the range of potential actions you are permitted to take. Nobody living in society has 100% freedom; the very foundation of society is giving up your certain freedoms, such as the natural freedom to kill your peers, in exchange for the benefits of that society (e.g. you are to some degree protected from peers who could otherwise kill you). Some have more freedom than others, and inmates have less freedom than nearly all citizens who aren't imprisoned, but among inmates there are still great differences in how much freedom they have.

      Presented without comment:
      >For example, following the 2020 US Presidential election, one candidate claimed (without evidence) that the election had been stolen, and encouraged their followers to storm the Capital and take potentially violent action against lawmakers, i.e. commit an insurrection.
      >Google would almost certainly be one of the first places people turned to for information about this event, and if their search engine returned propaganda websites that inaccurately portrayed the election evidence, that could directly lead to more contention, violence, or even the end of US democracy. Those of us who want free and fair elections to continue should be very grateful Google’s engineers are employing whitelists in this case.

      The mountain, or the CPU? Because I get plenty of results for the latter by just searching "Elbrus CPU". Instead you seem to be making a vague search like "Elbrus" and being surprised when you only get results for the mountain.

    This is definitely kind of a nothingburger. Who wouldn't expect clicks from Chrome to have some sort of greater effect than clicks from other browsers? Google is an ad company first and foremost. And Chrome is literal spyware. We've known these things from the get go.
