What a mess marketers are making of the internet as an information tool. All too often I find that no matter what I search for there is absolutely no useful information for several pages of results because of the use of inappropriate key words in site descriptions by careless and desperate marketers.
I recently was doing research on snow blowers. What an absolute waste of time! Just having the words 'snow blower' in my search term ensured hundreds of web sites appearing in the search results that were only interested in selling something.
The wierdest results I saw were sites that simply included 'snow blower' in a list of topics that weren't actually on the site.
It seems to me that marketers are defeating themselves by creating antipathy among web browsers by forever pushing genuine information sites further and further back in the search results. Certainly I am staggered at the difficulty there is now in finding information on the web.
If I could get there I'm sure my local library would be a faster source.
