Things definitely changed. 15-20 years ago you actually got good search results instead of unusable crap we get today.

True their competition is actually getting much better whereas they just throw BS at you nowadays. It's unfortunate but Google is no longer my go-to for searching.

The issue is that there are 1000 spam sites heavily optimized specifically to exploit Google's algorithm for every legitimate site. Merely by not being the primary focus of SEO, alternatives have a pretty hefty advantage.
