You absolutely worthless search engine. The only thing you’re good for these days is the fleeting ego boost one gets when he checks his blog ranking. In terms of actually delivering search results to your users, you’re pretty much useless and I’m done with you.
You have always been known for your constant error messages and website glitches, but most have been able to forgive you for this. But then semi-recently you started offering search results that didn’t actually take you to blog posts when you clicked on them. Instead, the click would bring you to a redundant Technorati page, a cheap ploy for increased pageviews that does nothing but alienate your users. I alerted you this problem awhile ago and I know you read it because your CEO showed up in my comment section. And yet you’ve done nothing to correct this basic usability problem. Could you imagine if Google made us click through redundant pages just to actually get to the website highlighted in its search results? It would be unthinkable, and yet one of the bozos working for you thought it would be a good idea.
You also offer tons of duplicate search results. If I do a simple keyword search there will be 5+ links to essentially the same exact blog post.
And then recently you drove me over the edge. I don’t know what the hell your website is doing, but whatever it is it’s causing my browser to freeze whenever I visit you. I’m writing this after having to close out my browser with ctrl-alt-delete. Do you really want to be a ctrl-alt-delete website? That’s the sign of imminent death if I’ve ever seen one.
As my frustrations grew, I started using Google Blog Search more and more. Now it’s reached the point when I use it for just about any basic search. Its results load quickly, it doesn’t offer redundant duplicate results, and when I click on the results it actually takes me to a freaking blog post. Sure, it does have its problems — it’s indexing way too many splogs, for instance — but I’ll take that over having to ctrl-alt-delete my way out of a website any day. If it were to ever offer ego-boosting blog rankings, you’d be entirely obsolete.
So, as I said, I’m done with you. You’ve manage to alienate one of your loyal users so much that he publicly renounced you. Good job.
