I bet if you watch a few they will never show up in your recommended videos.

I was just searching last night about what the F happened to the recommended videos. They use to show videos related to what you have searched for or watched previously. Now they added a Recently uploaded recommended videos that get dumped into your recommended videos. Selecting Not Interested has no effect. and clearing your history and cache doesn't do much.

It looks like they want to feed you all money making videos for kids like cats playing or other highly viewed brain dead useless videos. It's too bad there is no alternate to Youtube.

I also wanted to add that Youtube is de-funding creators who don't align with Youtubes agenda and that right there is a form of negative censorship.

As people have already experienced, search algorithms can be manipulated, while not necessarily by Google, but third parties have been caught doing it.

There was an article a few months back, that large media organizations (huffpost, buzzfeed, and vox) were using clickbait stories or reporting on fringe politics to push traffic to their websites so they can manipulating search algorithms and get more ad revenue. These media organizations were even caught buying businesses, whose sole purpose was to inflate their viewership with either bots or paid viewers. all in the hopes of manipulating search algorithms.. The mainstream viewers weren't buying it which resulted in those media organizations losing viewers and revenue, resulting in staff layoffs.

I think their strategy is working....i get lots of huffpost, buzzfeed, vox, and bloomberg links on a daily basis.........for no reason at all.

They are not free. They are ad driven.

Multi national corporation publicly traded. They do generate revenue by collecting and selling data to advertisers but consumers don't need a subscription to use Google search engine. youtube has a paid monthly subscription where you don't see ads.

I agree it's not simple and little more inconvenient but there are ways to obtain information or content without using Google search or youtube.

I have been playing with Firefox for a browser...can kill all/most of the pesky ads and pop up screens.

Just found Startpage.com for a search engine...looks like its less intrusive.
