Should Anyone Expect Privacy on Google?

03.15.12

Since 92% of adults use search engines every day means that they share volumes of information with Google, who dominates searching, 66.4% in the US and 80% in the EU. No one was surprised when Pew Research reported that 92% of adults search daily, but what Google does with our personal information changed on March 1, 2012 when Google simplified its Privacy Policy.

To learn more about challenges to Google’s new Privacy Policies, I encourage you to read my column in eCommerce Times entitled “Google’s New Privacy Policy vs. the World.” 

Let me know what you think about your privacy when you use Google!

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
