    yes at first i though it was just my wife's website which got thrown down to 2nd, 3rd page despite havign relevant title, web domain and keyword. other sites came on top that are not even relevant. for example she writes about Indonesian food, yet titles that are before her page have (mostly) articles, recipes about chinese, malaysian food. i thought ok so she did something wrong with keywords, links... but then about 3 months ago i've noticed that i simply can not find what i am looking for despite exact phrase. relevant results were often on second page or 3rd page. not on top anymore. i think they've ruined it with this new algorythm. i then checked other engines and see that her site is still close to the top. as it should be since there is only 1 or 2 more websites completely dedicated to this local cuisine.

    +1 on duck duck go. it seems to give good results. unfortunatelly i am not sure if you can earn any money with them like you can with google ads
