That wasn't my point. My point is this:
- It's difficult for google to police every restaurant that uses the keywords 'Jewish or Kosher' - even if the website makes it clear that they aren't kosher, but kosher/jewish style.

- Even if google could police those terms better, it legally can't eliminate a restaurant that has a hashgacha of any kind, regardless of how reputable any particular person thinks it is.

Being cognizant of the differences in minhagim and chumras, it's almost impossible to verify that every 'kosher' restaurant meets your standard. For example, there are those that have a minhag to only eat cheese that's been pasteurized at a temperature over 212 degrees F. Even if you searched for 'Kosher Cholov Yisroel Pizza'. You'd still probably a get a significant number of them that were not using "212 Cheese". 

The bottom line - search or no search, you need to check the kashrus of any place you eat at and not rely on a search.
I don't have an issue with there being restaurants that meet different standards on the list, but by adding non kosher restaurants to the list it makes it more difficult for kosher consumers to find an establishment that meets their needs.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Does dishsoap suppose to have a hechsher? I know palmolive does but I bought Costco's Kirkland dishsoap and I noticed it doesn't have one. Anyone familiar if the ingredients can contain any non kosher substances?

Is this supposed to be a Kosher symbol?
 On the very top the ok looking symbol.

So I guess that means it's kosher to an extent?

Yes. It's a good hechsher. The Vaad of St. Louis. On the CRC list. They just changed their symbol because the vegan symbol is too similar.

When I said to an extent I meant is it washed good enough that I can rely on it?

I would definitely rely on it and have in the past (with the old symbol). But, you don't know who I am. Maybe I have different standards than you ;)

There's a trustworthy rav telling you it's kosher, what more do you need?

There are many different opinions regarding standards for washing leafy vegetables. Case in point is how many hechsherim will not rely on the star-k romaine.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Correct, and that is why I only wrote it as a response to the comment I quoted.
