    Been getting fed up with Google's attempt for world domination, and in particular it's desire to know everything about my browsing habits. I now try to keep logged out of Google, use multiple browsers and am trying to edge my way over to Bing.

    Amused to read over at webmaster world that Google's latest offering is Search Plus Your World which lends itself to a very apposite acronym - SPY World!

    I presume you'll be removing all the adsense from your sites as well then :)?

    I did and deindexed all my sites, but amazingly Google re-indexes them after a week. Sometimes can't get into Google, others can't get out.. :-D

    I'm currently trying to ban anyone using chrome from my sites.

    Maybe you should do something they don't like.

    Or tweet one of the big guys directly and see what happens :D

    lol Blossom, nar this isn't me on a rant it's me wanting to protect buyers and sellers on that link service, I don't really want people coming in with Chrome browsers to buy and sell links for obvious reasons.

    Not sure Google would monitor browsers that visit my site but I suppose why give them a chance, they are evil little creatures ;)

    Ah right, I see. Yeah, Chrome users are definitely used by Google for indexing sites etc.

    Yup... i'm gonna asap :

    -put all email thru my local mail client instead of Gmail
    -subscribe to spamblocker service to filter out all emails I dont want over time
    -ditch android and go back to iOS or to crackberry
    -move sites off google analytics
    -not log into any google service moving forwards via a browser

    Theres a small window of opportunity to get off the matrix or at least make it harder for any 1 super company to know too much about you.
