        I search lots of recipes on google.

        The new "feature" normally gives you about 4 pages of the typical big, well funded sites that know how to game google's search function.

        Just skip to page 5 of your results and you start to get the good stuff-the home cooks that know what they're talking about-not the giant corporate sites that have s.e.o experts working around the clock.

Doing so means I don't need to scroll past or thru any of the search results you mention to get to the gems. I plan to stick with GC until or when the new Google recipe specific search engine isn't corporate driven.
