Do You Think Google Search Results Suck? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week, we asked readers to let us know how you keep track of your passwords. It seems most MakeUseOf readers are using LastPass (or Xmarks, which will soon be integrated into LastPass).

Out of 674 votes, we had this breakdown: 34% use LastPass/Xmarks; 16% use KeePass or KeePass X; 11% use the same password for everything; 10% use Notepad or some other text-based record; 10% simply remember them; 7% use Roboform; 7% use some other tool (the comments are full of great suggestions); 6% use 1Password and 1% use Sticky.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.


LastPass/Xmarks comes very highly recommended by MakeUseOf readers.

This week’s poll question is: Do You Think Google Search Results Suck?

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the quantity of sites who use SEO to rank highly in Google search results. There’s also been plenty of debate as to whether Google should or shouldn’t try to remove them from the top slots in order to make the results better for the searchers. What’s your take?

If you have a strong opinion about good or bad search results based on something you searched for recently, give us some comparison links in the comments!

  • Scroogled

    scroogle results are biased, geared toward promoting what they say is important (which it is not) and pushing everything else into the dark. Typical herd mentality of today. The only thing that counts is the buzz, not the reality. In short they suck and social marketing is not social, it is business marketing when 80% of tweets are selling something.

    All depends on how you search. If you search seriously with Google, Google will give you best response. If you search nonsense with Google, Google with give you nonsense response. Just look at the picture. I even searched a forum in my native language (Myanmar/Burma). Who gives the best results? Of course ‘Google.’
