Search engines and privacy – it’s a trade-off

March 10, 2012

They already track you. Everywhere. Search engines, ad networks, three letter agencies. Here are my follow-up questions:

  • do you feel tracked?
  • would you feel lonely if you weren’t tracked? 🙂
  • are you willing to pay for more content on the web? (so you won’t need to be sold to advertisements)
  • would counter-privacy-invasion be a good enough compensation for you ? (having access to ‘privacy’ of search engines, ad networks and three letter agencies)

For me… the greatest disappointment is that the quality of search results went way down for my queries. Even with all the data they have on me search engines still have no clue what I am looking for.

Search engine users worry about privacy invasion

Americans are using online search engines, especially Google, more than ever before, but an increasing number worry that the tracking of their online activities is an invasion of privacy, according to a new study released today.

We need this to understand how you use our service - you can take it out if you like. Cheers, your Blogspire team.
