    This started to become noticeable years ago when Google decided to start censoring searches even with SafeSearch off.

    I switched to Bing at that time, which was good for a while, but eventually they have started doing the same thing.

    I can now no longer find a search engine that actually works to find me all the relevant results. I’ve tried all that I’ve heard of, and none will provide complete results.

    The easiest canary in the coal mine for this is NSFW stuff. If I search for a popular character of which I know there’s lots of porn/hentai, with SafeSearch off, and do not get a heavy mix of SFW and NSFW results, I know that search engine is messing with those results, and is also definitely doing it with searches that are not so obvious.
