            What's he doing in there?

            put every word in its own quotes.
            this fixes google search.
            its simply telling google that you REALLY want the keywords to exist on the site.
            it has improved my results from useless to precise

            The problem is that this will often give you 0 search results because Google has been straight up delisting and de-indexing pages from completely normal websites. So let's say hypothetically my very post right here is on a website called "coolwebsite()com" (since Google is allergic to IQfy) and you want to find my post that you know for a fact exists. Let's also say for the sake of the example that this post is from 2023, and the website has existed since 2010. You search:
            >coolwebsite "completely" "normal" "search"
            No results for my post, results are unrelated.
            Okay, no problem, try again.
            >coolwebsite "completely normal search"
            Even less results, every result is an unrelated website, a product ad, or a "popular post" from coolwebsite that gets a lot of traffic due to a feedback loop of views it's getting from Google, essentially ranking itself up endlessly.
            Okay, getting desperate, let's get more specific using a command:
            >"completely normal search" site:coolwebsite()com
            Every single post is from coolwebsite, but it's all unrelated and the thread it's in never comes up.
            Fricking hell, one last try.
            >"The problem is that this will often give you 0 search results because Google has been straight up delisting and de-indexing pages from completely normal websites." site:coolwebsite()com
            0 results listed at all. You've narrowed it down to nothing. There are posts more recent than 2023 that are indexed, and more obscure posts too, so why not this one? What's with the random indexing?
            After going down the rabbithole of articles provided by

            Google has a full monopoly, they know they can't grow anymore. So they decided to get more ad impressions by making search worse and worse, so users spend longer, and they add "answers" directly in google to keep you on the site and snuff out actually informative sites. There is even a lot of proof about how this worked internally at google: https://housefresh.com/david-vs-digital-goliaths/

            You're right but it's getting worse and worse.

            I'm getting a suspicion that Google is involved in a criminal conspiracy to illegally destroy competition against big media, and is getting profit for doing so - not just for ads, but also in the form of business deals and contacts that nobody is informed of. I'm also concerned that "content contractors" like Advon Commerce are likely shell companies.

          I'm sure they will frick it up eventually, somehow. The YT web application is already showing signs of total incompetence, like live chat boxes that rebuild their little frame's contents in a 60 FPS loop, making the browser max out at least one CPU core as for the sake of some scrolling text and profile pics.
          Or the page occasionally showing the previous video's comments and stuff after navigation, as if proper client-side routing and error handling were too complicated for this small barely-used app.
          Wonder what kind of framework they're using.

      It's been like that for at least 5 years, at least when it comes to product reviews and information.
      Most of the top results are SEO garbage generated by algorithms or some "tech enthusiast" (who may or may not exist). And there's no actual review beyond rambling paragraphs derived from the product's specs, plus a few pics from its official site. It looks enough like a proper review to draw people in, and maybe lure some of them to click on the Amazon link. Google doesn't give a shit.

          True. Yet no real alternative. It won't can't be funded and most of the most popular sites even hate crawlers that skip to the stugf people actually want.

      If the search engine is so moronic that it has to be told you want the official docs rather than irrelevant garbage, then the "skill issue" is with the developers, not the end user.
