    I saw a clip of Rick & Morty on YouTube. I've never seen it, so I went to look for it online.

    Spoiler: AdultSwim has it all online for free. Hulu shows it, too. This is a softball in search terms, the actual sources are extremely high authority.

    Here's Google:

    Upsell, infringement, infringement, actual site, infringement, authorized copy, infringement.

    Bing gets this right. DuckDuckGo gets this right.

    What in the shit is wrong with Google? It's like the Holocaust searches again: dubious, low-authority websites with poor design easily outrank the legitimate, high-quality result.

    Two questions:
    1. Why is this happening, and what can we learn from it?
    2. What are the odds of Google tinkering with the algorithm to fix this general problem?

    It's happening because these illegal streaming sites are unfortunately incredibly popular and "earn" natural links in masses (especially from forums) easily. You'll see the same results when looking for streams/shows on Netflix, Amazon, etc., but get illegal streams as results.

    The pirate update made many torrents disappear from the SERPs but doesn't seem to care much for streams. Sucks, but I doubt Google will get this fixed fast, it's been like this for quite a time.

    I am not surprised to see this result.From my knowledge, if the keyword consisting watch online means this shit is happening from last year itself.

    I don't think google will fix it.
