Sometimes it's quite impossible nowadays to obtain good search results with Google, because you get only links to portals, and when you click one the result is: Sorry, no search result!
Try e.g. "adapterblende".
Is there any search engine that delivers original sites?

Use minus sign Apr 27, 2004

Have you tried to use the minus sign to exclude the useless links? Using your example, radioblende yields 1690 hits, radioblende -hama narrows the search down to 290 hits.

Try, it's a meta-search engine, that is it searches in several search engines. I sometimes find it better than Google. Anyway, try to use the advanced search functions as much as possible (both in google and in other search engines).
