I've been having the feeling recently that search engines are getting worse and worse. For example, I'm looking to understand the #lifecycle of #basil plants to better grow it. Searching for "lifecycle of basil" gives me a number of short blog posts on the topic, that all contain pretty much the same summary. Mixed in are a litany of products for sale like bike products. I find it hard to believe there is so little in depth information on the #internet about such a popular plant.
@eighthave That's interesting. Have you compared the results of different search engines?
@andre this is just a feeling, I have no data or measurements. I mostly use duckduckgo (Bing) and startpage (Google), and sometimes Google directly.
