Google’s SafeSearch setting and images search algorithm appear to have been altered significantly for users in the US and elsewhere, as previously explicit searches are not returning explicit results.

When shopping online, Google also doesn't display all (ie, the cheapest) options when searching. The following link is run by its competitor (MS-Bing), but still, has a point....

I've noticed starting as far back as 2007.
Searches are not organic, not when someone is paying for key words.
I have noticed that eventually, companies will stop paying for certain keywords. Then those searches become more organic than usual. But not as much so as they were, before they started screwing with their results, and hyping Google ads.

That's what fucked up Google.

I have searched for items they haven't made in a half century, and gotten pages upon pages of Amazon affiliates offering to sell me a brand spanking new one. Though if you click on the link, you get... "Product discontinued".

You're using Google all wrong. You're only supposed to use the interwebz to BUY things, and you definitely should only be buying what El Goog TELLS you to buy.

What is sad about Google is non-shopping related searches still return three pages of shopping results, even when your search terms are clearly porn- or food-related.

And Google's new annoying auto-fill search box? It's an epileptic seizure that delivers results you didn't ask for to a random ass sentence you didn't key in. Adds at least 3 extra seconds to my search routine. #problemsofthedownwardlymobile

The internet is littered with dead links and outdated web pages. I can still find my house online for sale and it's been off the market for over a year now.

Google tweaks image search to make porn harder to find

I don't know what your problem is. I have no trouble finding the porn I like on Google image search.

I expect to type one letter of what I'm searching for & should receive all links in the order I want them, after all I'm an American & demand immediate gratification.
