#Don’t Google anything that enables Google to define your identity
If you’re really serious about finding a way around Google’s propensity for constructing a profile to define who you are and how much you’re worth to specific advertisers, then there’s not much recourse but to avoid searching anything that could give Google or advertisers a clue about your identity. As Jeffrey Rosen reported for The New York Times a few years ago, the privacy threats go beyond creepy ads. “Computers can link our digital profiles with our real identities so precisely that it will soon be hard to claim that the profiles are anonymous in any meaningful sense,” Rosen writes.
If you’re looking to minimize the amount of information that search engines and advertisers collect on you, there are a few steps you should take. Choose an alternative search engine, like DuckDuckGo, to keep your search history from being recorded and analyzed. Install an extension like AdBlock Plus, Ghostery, or Disconnect to protect yourself against companies who want to track your activity online. Check your privacy settings on popular sites, and always log out of social networks when you’re browsing the web.
#”Bear” by Marian Engel
Is Marian Engel’s “Bear” a REAL book? A real book about a woman’s erotic affair with a BEAR? A real book including the following real passage: “Her menstrual fever made him more assiduous”??? I don’t even want to know, you guys.

Even though it’s easy to search for just about anything, there are some things you should never Google | Source:
Protecting your privacy online can be difficult. If you use Google, Bing, Yahoo, or any other search engine that records your IP address and search terms, there are some things — many things, it turns out — that you really shouldn’t search. Google, for instance, can combine your search history with more data about your identity, and associate them with a full profile that both the search engine and advertisers can use to get an idea of who you are, what you’re interested in, and what you’re most likely to buy. That should make you think twice about sharing your problems, your interests, and even inquiries born out of idle curiosity with a major search engine like Google.
#Don’t search for things that clue Google in to your location
As Jay Stanley reported for the ACLU, one of the earliest instances in which the powerful privacy implications of having your search history recorded occurred in 2006, when AOL released a large set of searches that had been conducted on its sites. While the identity of the searcher was replaced with an arbitrary number — so that all of the searches by an individual were still gathered around the same identifier — members of the media found that it wasn’t difficult to identify searchers’ hometowns, neighborhoods, age, sex, and other identifying details through their searches. The result was “an electrifying sense of just how intimate and revealing the information one ‘shares’ with a search engine can be.”
#Don’t search for information on medical issues or drugs
Yes, there is fanfiction devoted to Tetris. Yes, some of it is pornographic. “I unbuttoned the blue pixel I had on my lower half and instructed her on the ways of foreplay. As her top pixel met my bottom pixel, I let out an ecstatic sigh. Such pleasure I had never experienced in my life …
#Don’t give your search engine hints about your insecurities
Advertising is notoriously formulated to create and capitalize upon viewers’ insecurities. Giving your search engine — and all of the advertisers that leverage the information it collects on you — easy access to the insecurities you already have just does the dirty work for them. Making things easier for advertisers who want to capitalize on your insecurities to sell you products and services doesn’t sound like a huge deal compared to what happens when you search for medical information. But it still has some unsettling effects that you should avoid, if you can.
#Peanut, the world’s ugliest dog
Once you see Peanut, you can never unsee him. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
A site called “
This is one of the few items on this list to receive any kind of real mainstream attention. It even scored a subtle mention on an episode of “30 Rock”:
You can probably guess that googling photos of smokers’ lungs ain’t gonna be pretty.
Nope, you don’t have to be more specific than that — Google will return a plethora of terrible visuals for you to choose from.
