Google restricts search results

"Google this week admitted that its staff will pick and choose what appears in its search results. It's a historic statement - and nobody has yet grasped its significance..."

The 'Evil Empire' strikes again  >:-D

... So you see, it's not rigged! How could Google "rig" a system that only reflects our finest and most noble sentiments back at us - mediated by a technocratic priesthood of unquestionable moral authority?

The "Evil Empire" as you call it seems to be losing some marketshare on searches.

Not sure what they can do about it.

I think it shows how fast internet changes.

This is a prime example of why i use DuckDuckGo as my primary search engine.

To get around google, I use scroogle (lately I have been) 
What scroogle does and everything about it
http://www.scroogle.org/

This is the search engine used to search for stuff using the google engine but without the privacy issues ;)

It's hard being a crooked Admin when the files won't pass an md5checksum test.  But like any other good crooked Admin it can be done, it just takes time(and lots of it) and a few aspirins

I've used Scroogle for years. Occasionally Google makes a change that breaks it for a day or so, but it's usually not out very long.

Of course, if Google is restricting their searches, Scroogle will also be restricted...
