Yup, Google sucks big style at the moment. Almost the first page of any search for a product name or a simple set of (non numeric) keywords is "buy this here" or "compare prices for thing at our shop".
Especially annoying is the increasing lack of localisation. Why do I, searching from google.co.uk, want to know special offers from the US? Very few of the budget resellers will ship to the UK anyway.
I have switched back to webcrawler and altavista, two of the great originals.
BUT did these two not used to allow regex search terms? Can't seem to make it work nowadays.
Maybe we could put a regex filter onto google to remove adverts...
