Tech News: Google Shows How it Displays Customized Search Results
This newsbit actually freaked me out. If you’re a paranoid-delusional, then this is something you’d rather not know. But then again, anyone who would be reading about this would become paranoid-delusional as well.
Remember how Google apparently tracks everything that you do with them? Well, get ready for this – they’re making public how they dish out customized search results for you. And yes, it involves something about your location (tracked via your IP), your recent searches, and your web history (which they record if you search while logged in another service like Mail or Reader).
Sure, you could appreciate their transparency. But it does come off as a confirmation of your worst fears. Anyway, here are more tips on making your searches private.
