Don't like them, and don't use them for anything, their search is biased on many topics especially when it comes to health, medicine and politics. DDG and Bing might not be better but at least they don't sensor results as much.
I honestly feel like Google is running my web-life. Everything I do has to be in consideration to Google and as a user I also concur with the previous comments the results are bad and knowing that you're probably just clicking on the result that has the most money paid for SEO. I feel like DonQuijote against the windmills trying to get my pages up there
It's a simple logic.
My enemy is social media ads because it burns my money. Google doesn't like social media because they are competitors.
So Google is an enemy of my enemy. And the enemy of my enemy is my friend.
How? Search engine organic ranking doesn't necessarily mean you are gonna be burning money. Low competition keywords.
From a user perspective, Google has to be liked. Why? Everybody is using it. Monopoly!
Like Google. You really can't hide from it anyway. Social dilemma here again.
From user view is probably the best search engine. From webmaster view google is the worst search engine. Years ago the first website in serps received more than 60% of clicks, nowdays is half way with 2-3 ads in top page, local seo, snippets... And if that wasn't enough, adsense is also becoming a bad option for monetization.
