    Anonymous leaks do no harm if search counts are turned into advertising statistics for sellers to purchase. Say, I’ll take the 1000 most likely prospects online in the Bay Area at 10pm. Otherwise its definitely as much an invasion of privacy as a restaurant giving out your email address to an Audi dealer.

    Will default SSL searches from the new version of Firefox affect Bing’s Webmaster Tools? There aren’t any indications yet, but it’s probably too early to tell.

    I revisited the keyword (not provided) stats for my relatively small website since last October and it is about 14%.  My fiance has a large website and his was about 15%.  Just an interesting observation since back then it was supposed to only affect “single digits”.

    I think what they failed to take into account is what a pain Google makes it for the average non-web-savvy user to log out of their account.  Seems like once they check their Gmail or log into YouTube, they tend to just stay logged in, through searches, etc.

    Interesting, I just completed a Google search using Firefox 14 and the results were not encrypted. Obviously I am not going something right

    My impression is that Google puts anonymous statistics, like ranked lists ( or regression coefficients) of candidates for ads out to advertisers and advertisers bid for the best candidates. If that is not so then it should be. If it is so, how does that affect your privacy/security in any way.

    This is nothing but a new ploy for intrusion of our privacy.
