Re: I think you forgot one
I remember when Google killed logical operators to "make search results faster". I am guessing that is when "pay to play" SEO went into overdrive.
Google's attitude was that we wanted some results quicker rather than the results we expected.
Used to be one could use "NOT" to exclude a word. I could get very relevant results. Talking 1995-6.
Now you get crap and if I try to limit the crap, that action apparently triggers a reaction from the search engine and I get worse crap.
Would be nice to have front end that could do the boolean logic on the search results and then filter the crap, like a mashup of DuckDuckGo and AdBlocker.
