Search engines are obsolete

Shortly this post is inspired by a Lukes video when he rumbles about todays search engines.

Since my interest often lies in computers, programming and linux I truly get just handful of sites for my searches. A short example can be StachExchange, StackOverflow, language manuals or documentation, Archwiki pages and from time to time some other site (but this is very rare).

So I should start thinking a bit more about the topic before I put my question to the general search engine and rather use the correct site or information source (like local documentation) instead of these general search engines.
