Googling bad search results can waste hours of your time, and Google can even waste your time while it’s working as intended. This post will explore why that might be happening and what we can do about it.

What is Google

‘Google it’ is a common phrase, and if you are unfamiliar with it, it means looking something up on the internet. With its enormous database, Google can show thousands of answers to your question in seconds, and it can deliver thousands of ads.

In addition to being a leader in web-based software and services for consumers (and generating billions of dollars each year), it’s also one of the world’s largest online advertising networks.

Google is the best search engine in the world.

Why You Google Bad Search Results

Google Adsense

Advertisements are a factor in some bad search results. Google Adsense is an automated ad placement service provided by Google which places contextually relevant ads on its network.

The system automatically detects sites with content related to particular products or topics and displays matching advertisements near those pages without much user choice.

The Google Monopoly

As Google’s closest competitor, Microsoft has only 2% of the share, which is very small and cannot pose a severe threat to the search engine monopoly.

The search engine also owns many subsidiaries, such as AdSense, controlling most internet advertising. They now hold roughly 85% of the internet advertisement dollars, taking the lead along with the social media giant Facebook.

Google controls this position through AdSense and its ability to influence internet users. Ultimately, Google can overrule any organic search result.


Regulating Google would be difficult because no government has ever taken steps to regularize search engine monopolies, making them more significant than governments and countries.

Not because Google is so good, but because there is no other competitor. User data, search history, site analytics, and private information are at risk, with few advocating higher security and choice.

Once a monopoly completely dominates the market space, they often diverge from its goals and become dangerous.

Google has a really simple philosophy: don’t be evil.

Sergey Brin, Co-founder of Google

User Tracking

Google knows who we are, where we live, and what we like and dislike; this information has helped it serve relevant ads to the right people when the time comes.

We see ads that may interest us; our friends with different interests may see ads different from what we see. The same is true of some search results.

Bad Search Algorithm

There are a few more reasons why Google can be unreliable at times. One reason is that Google’s search algorithm is constantly changing, so sometimes, the results you get may not be the most accurate.

Additionally, Google’s search engine can be fooled by spammy or misleading websites, leading to incorrect results. Finally, Google’s servers can sometimes go down, which can cause the search engine to be unavailable.

Google’s Bad Navigation

Google can be difficult to navigate because its search engine results pages (SERPs) are cluttered with ads and sponsored links.

In addition, the layout of the results pages can vary from one user’s search to another, making it difficult to determine where the “organic” search results begin and the ads end.

Google was founded on the belief that organizing the world’s information can change the world.”

Larry Page, Co-founder of Google

Is Google Addictive?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the addictive potential of different technologies may vary depending on the person.

However, some experts have suggested that one of the reasons why Google is so addictive is because it provides users with a sense of control and power. Additionally, the company’s algorithms are designed to keep users engaged for as long as possible.
