    I’m starting too think Google knows too much.

    @FrancisJav
    actually too is more acceptable because it’s too much information as opposed to the fact it is being sent to Google

    It’s not that Google knows too much, which they do. It’s that, we the Google Pawns, don’t know any better.

    Next time try using a different search engine like http://duckduckgo.com. At least DuckDuckGo doesn’t track or bubble you – and they say so right on their web page too (bottom left).

    I also use startpage.com and millionshort.com/search.php Start page tells you right on it’s page that you aren’t being followed. Millionshort cuts out the first million, hundred thousand and ten thousand results, which really cuts to chase. This way, you aren’t bombarded with a lot of Google landing pages. I’m going to try DuckDuckGo though because when you go to a website, through startpage and want to click on a link, a message will tell you that you have to become visible again so, technically, you can not stay incognito. You also have to do the same thing if you want to order anything. Thanks for the tip, Francis.Jav

    …DNT+…Do Not Track +….it covers your tracks by not allowing anything you choose not to track you…I use it with no tracking allowed, and so far it has blocked tracking from EVERYTHING…only what I chose to track me…has blocked 55,011 attempts….45,000 from Google to over 8,000 from Face Book…learn it, use it, know it…
