Happened upon an interesting YouTube video about the deterioration of Google search over time.
It’s an insightful video highlighting the problem Google (and others) face in a world where a move from the open web to closed gardens which are becoming increasingly inaccessible to these search engines.
Think of Discord servers which are increasingly replacing the function which forums would have offered, but are not directly indexable by Google.
I can see this phenomenon occurring myself; where I would have previously visited gaming sites for clans/guilds or adjacent gaming discussion forums. These are now almost all offering as Discord or Guilded servers, I rarely if ever visit forums now.
