A spokesperson for the site explained, “With Google’s algorithms changing to give ever increasing precedence to multi-media and local matches, a lot of the most basic text document searches are being left behind. By keeping our algorithms a little more old-school, we can weed out all the unnecessary information in instances where users are simply looking to find a text document. It’s a simple solution, but it’s proved to be hugely popular as a result.”
