Alphabetti spaghetti: What Wall Street isn't telling you about Google


Re: "Google came along with a better search engine algorithm"

I used AltaVista and in my circle Yahoo was poopoo'd :-). The nicest thing back then was being able to bounce around search results and find things that you would never have known existed. It was a joy.

I finally switched to Google as everyone else I knew/was working with used that and at that time the search results were better ("competition" forced me to use Google).

These days it's all "bubble" this and "echo chamber" that. I use DuckDuckGo as I like to avoid tracking but ironically that's based on Yahoo search and now my search tool use has come full circle.

Can someone restart the internet please... (it's non-responsive).
