HOWTO: How to avoid being tracked by Google
Sites like Google track you by placing a unique serialized cookie on your machine.
Deleting Google cookies prevents Google from associating you from your searches.
Deleting all cookies really keeps Google from tracking you by eliminating any Google affiliate cookies from tracking your search & surfing habits.
Even better yet:
Simply don't use Google... right? How can they track you if you don't go to Google.com?
Oh, au contraire.
Here's a few of the ways that Google manages to track you... with or without you visiting Google.com... with or without a Google cookie.
GOOGLE AFFLIATE NETWORK
Even if you never go to Google.com, your behavior is probably being monitored. Remember that every Google affliate (folks using Google AdSense - those banners & context sensitive ads that show up on people's web pages) is receiving payment for you simply visiting their page and essentially allowing your visit & interest to be indexed into the Google 'brain'.
The fact is that the more information Google has associated with your cookie, the more they can tell about you. A giant profile or 'virtual folder' is being built about you and even if you never enter your real name, mailing address, or email while being tracked, a general profile is being created on you individually - this is how advertisement targeting is done.
And this is the nefarious nature of all of this: With people signing up for Google AdSense to receive their 'bounty', it's becoming virtually impossible to dodge Google's tracking engine.
1) Block that cookie. And selectively clear your cookie cache.
2) Change your hosts file to block google-analytics.com
*** Use Internet Explorer's cookie blocking/privacy facility to proactively block all first party cookies from Google.com. Go to Tools-Internet Options-"Privacy" tab and click the Sites button. Then set up a rule that Always blocks cookies from anything associated with the google.com domain.
*** Block Google Analytics. Google Analytics is nefarious because it's a true first party cookie that exists on people's web sites that track you back to Google Analytics so even if you're blocking Google cookies, this 1st party cookie from myhomegrownweb.com still allows Google to track you through redirection. To stop this, you have to change your HOSTS file. Add the following line to your Windows hosts file
*** If you're at all interested in protecting your privacy, it's absolutely imperative that you nuke tracking cookies early and often. Use CCleaner from [url]http://www.ccleaner.com [/url]to clear out your cookie cache on every boot of your system. Consider Advanced Tracks Eraser as well from http://www.benutec.com/products/trackseraser/ which can clear your cache at timed intervals.
*** Consider trying G-Zapper from http://www.dummysoftware.com/gzapper.html. This will help identify any other cookie-based methods that Google uses to track users. For example, it blocks people from using Google Analytics.
