I've been having the feeling recently that search engines are getting worse and worse. For example, I'm looking to understand the of 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 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.
