Has Google Gone Gaga?
I've noticed in the last day or two that, suddenly, all of Google's search services have gotten ridiculously worse.
UPDATE: I finally figured out that I had an ad malware called RocketTab that somehow got installed. It’s taken over the Google search pages.
I’ve noticed in the last day or two that, suddenly, all of Google’s search services have gotten ridiculously worse. Standard Web search suddenly turns up like a dozen ads ahead of the actual results, not the one or two it used to. Ditto video search. Image search suddenly became all but unusable.
I recognize that monetizing ad units has always been Google’s main business and everything else is just data mining. But this is bad enough to drive me to Bing.
