Default Poor google results.

A search in google first brings up "diyaudio on ebay" before the real diyaudio site.
Looks like ebay marketing power beats all.

Google has been this way for a long time. For a person interested in scientific searches I would think popularity based results and search term blurring would be negative things.

I understood the search to be "diyaudio on ebay", not "diyaudio".

I don't understand why he'd search for that. But the result is not IMHO "poor".

I was reporting on search results which I now see now are on Bing.

"DIYAUDIO on ebay" comes up first.
"DIYAUDIO" comes up second.

My point is search works well if you pay enough it comes up under everything.

Well I now know 2 people who use Edge. Both in the west of England, oddly enough.

IE is pretty much obsolete now so the other Microsoft browser on Windows 10 is Edge. And Edge defaults (certainly on my latest Windows 10 install) to Bing.
