G! Search History


So the big G! has rolled out ‘personalized’ search for registered users. It will return more precise results based on previous queries and clicked links. It’s great for advertisers and googlin’ bloodhounds in the same way Amazon analyzes your views, purchases and interests to recommend various products.Do I like it? Yes and no. Yes, because the results of my queries will be more precise to me. No, because G! has my entire search history: “XXX and pr0n”, “anarchy in motion”, “Lucifer is my father” and so on.I hope Big Brother doesn’t come knocking.(This is also applies to any similar features from Y!, MSN, Ask Jeeves, A9)
