what happened to google search?

I used to love google search engine because I could find virtually anything going back years when I did a google search and I still use it but I’m starting to love it less and less since they changed it to be more like Bing. Bing actually seems to bring up better results than google lately but still get alot of useless information that I don’t want or need and having to search through 20 pages to find old historical information isn’t helpful. Instead of bringing back useful info all of a sudden the results are returning crap. If I wanted to search for the most current items, then I would choose to search for everything that’s happened in the last 10 days.  Google it wasn’t broken, why did you fix it?

I started using dogpile to search through the various search engine but dogpile scans through google and bing which brings back the useless crap that I don’t need or want to see. I want to be able to search by keywords and that seems to be missing in Google, Bing and even Dogpile now

So how does one get rid of the useless search results and start finding the information that is needed in the cloud? I want to be able to type in keywords and get what I’m looking for and not have to be really specific in my word search, is that too much to ask?

Well, you can still use google but go to http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=all to use the original Google search engine or try

Altavista.com http://www.altavista.com

Yahoo.com http://www.yahoo.com/

Lycos.com http://search.lycos.com

Search.com http://www.search.com (which still searches through Bing and Google but at least you get a little more definite keyword search results)
