Over the last year or so I've noticed Google's results getting worse. I basically taught myself design and front-end development by googling. Now, when I try to google for the most basic of searches I have a hard time finding the god content that was once right in front of me. I've had to type more detailed searches, use the timeline features on the left sidebar and I started using delicious as a search engine for web related stuff more and more. An article I read last night mentioned blekko.com (often times much easier to find what I'm looking for there) - I tried it out a few months ago but added it to my bookmarks bar recently and have been getting used to using it the last few days. I'm glad other people are starting to notice google's bad results and hopefully the more people talk about it they'll the more google will work on improving and getting back to the search results of a year or two ago when I was actually able to find stuff...quickly. I also noticed 'stack scrapers' recently and figured you guys would be a little upset. It's not their users creating the content, why the hell should they make money piggy backing off of you. But yes, if someone scrapes your content the original content should always be placed first in the results. Good luck, hope you guys get it resolved and hope I get my google back.
