Three's A Trend: The Decline of Google Search Quality

Anil Dash, Weblog, Jan 03, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Anil Dash links to three separate articles making the same point: that Google's utility as a search engine is declining (and from where I sit, the instant search and preview don't help; they just make messy searches messier). One of the articles gets to the heart of the matter: "Google is like a monoculture, and thus parasites have a major impact once they have adapted to it - especially if Google has 'lost the war'." Which means this may be a one-way street: Google's search might not get better again.
