    Google macht sich laut etlichen Berichten recht unbeliebt durch massive Rumschnüffelei und Abspeichern von Suchbegriffen und angeklickten Ergebnissen - Dinge, die eigentich Privatsache sein sollten.

    Also ich verwende jetzt alltheweb.com und vivisimo.com zum Suchen (letzteres sogar nmit hilfreich geclusterten Ergebnissen) und finde immer alles.

    Was denkt Ihr?

    1. GOOGLE'S IMMORTAL COOKIE
    Google was the first search engine to use a
    cookie that expires in 2038. This was at a time
    when federal websites were prohibited from using
    persistent cookies altogether. Now it's years
    later, and immortal cookies are commonplace among
    search engines; Google set the standard because
    no one bothered to challenge them. This cookie
    places a unique ID number on your hard disk.
    Anytime you land on a Google page, you get a
    Google cookie if you don't already have one. If
    you have one, they read and record your unique ID
    number.

    2. GOOGLE RECORDS EVERYTHING THEY CAN
    For all searches they record the cookie ID, your
    Internet IP address, the time and date, your
    search terms, and your browser configuration.
    Increasingly, Google is customizing results based
    on your IP number. This is referred to in the
    industry as "IP delivery based on geolocation."

    3. GOOGLE RETAINS ALL DATA INDEFINITELY
    Google has no data retention policies. There is
    evidence that they are able to easily access all
    the user information they collect and save.

    4. GOOGLE WON'T SAY WHAT THEY NEED THIS DATA
    Inquiries to Google about their privacy policies
    are ignored. When the New York Times (2002-11-28)
    asked Sergey Brin about whether Google ever gets
    subpoenaed for this information, he had no
    comment.

    5. GOOGLE HIRES SPOOKS
    Matt Cutts, a key Google engineer, used to work
    for the National Security Agency. Google wants to
    hire more people with security clearances, so
    that they can peddle their corporate assets to
    the spooks in Washington.

    6. GOOGLE'S TOOLBAR IS SPYWARE
    With the advanced features enabled, Google's
    free toolbar for Explorer phones home with every
    page you surf, and yes, it reads your cookie too.
    Their privacy policy confesses this, but that's
    only because Alexa lost a class-action lawsuit
    when their toolbar did the same thing, and their
    privacy policy failed to explain this. Worse yet,
    Google's toolbar updates to new versions quietly,
    and without asking. This means that if you have
    the toolbar installed, Google essentially has
    complete access to your hard disk every time you
    connect to Google (which is many times a day).
    Most software vendors, and even Microsoft, ask if
    you'd like an updated version. But not Google.
    Any software that updates automatically presents
    a massive security risk.

    7. GOOGLE'S CACHE COPY IS ILLEGAL
    Judging from Ninth Circuit precedent on the
    application of U.S. copyright laws to the
    Internet, Google's cache copy appears to be
    illegal. The only way a webmaster can avoid
    having his site cached on Google is to put a
    "noarchive" meta in the header of every page on
    his site. Surfers like the cache, but webmasters
    don't. Many webmasters have deleted questionable
    material from their sites, only to discover later
    that the problem pages live merrily on in
    Google's cache. The cache copy should be "opt-in"
    for webmasters, not "opt-out."

    8. GOOGLE IS NOT YOUR FRIEND
    By now Google enjoys a 75 percent monopoly for
    all external referrals to most websites.
    Webmasters cannot avoid seeking Google's approval
    these days, assuming they want to increase
    traffic to their site. If they try to take
    advantage of some of the known weaknesses in
    Google's semi-secret algorithms, they may find
    themselves penalized by Google, and their traffic
    disappears. There are no detailed, published
    standards issued by Google, and there is no
    appeal process for penalized sites. Google is
    completely unaccountable. Most of the time Google
    doesn't even answer email from webmasters.

    9. GOOGLE IS A PRIVACY TIME BOMB
    With 200 million searches per day, most from
    outside the U.S., Google amounts to a privacy
    disaster waiting to happen. Those
    newly-commissioned data-mining bureaucrats in
    Washington can only dream about the sort of slick
    efficiency that Google has already achieved.

    Der "Schwächere" wird vom "Stärkeren" gefressen, und der "Stärkere" frisst sich früher oder später selber!
