Google Expands Its All Your Base Are Belong To Us Approach

When Larry Page took over the steering wheel at Google, the company made a u-turn on the “do not do evil” road which it had followed for most of its existence.

Google To Enable HTTPS For Internation Search Users In The Coming Weeks

Google To Enable HTTPS For Internation Search Users In The Coming Weeks

HTTPS has been the default protocol for the past months for users connecting to the google.com website. Google switched to https on by default last year, from previously offering https connections as an option in the search settings. Web users who load http://www.google.com/ in a browser will notice that they are automatically redirected to the https version of the site. The idea here is to improve the overall security of the connection, and to eliminate eavesdropping and traffic snooping...

Protected Search Lets You Use Google Without Being Tracked

With Google consolidating many of the company’s privacy policies into one came the fear that the companies primary motivation for the move was to generate even more revenue through their advertising programs than before.Google users have only a few options at their disposal to escape the tracking.

Scroogle Founder Pulls The Plug, Closes Website

Scroogle Founder Pulls The Plug, Closes Website

Scroogle was one of the sites that came up occasionally here on Ghacks as an alternative to Google Search. It basically provided access to Google Search results through a proxy to protect the privacy of its users. In this regard, it was more of a Google proxy than a search engine. Daniel Brandt, the creator of Scroogle, established the service in April 2003, and it has ever since been available online. Things turned for the worse in recent years when Google started to block – and...

Personal Experience to: Dealing with Online Content Theft

Personal Experience to: Dealing with Online Content Theft (Personal experience of Darren Stevens) Online content theft is, unfortunately, a common incident these days. As soon as a site becomes popular, it’s only a matter of time before someone reproduces it and tries to make a buck from it. One simply needs access to a RSS feed and an Google AdSense account in order to monetize from someone else’s work, and sadly, this happens all too often. Worse, the offending sites can...

What Bing Search Does And Could Do Better

What Bing Search Does And Could Do Better

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); I switched to Bing recently and had my fair share of experience with Microsoft’s search engine. The main reason for switching was a deterioration of quality results in Google Search. It began in May and has not changed since then. That, and the noise that has been added to search result pages over the past year. It happens that ads dominate the results in Google (and I count links to other Google products as ads as well).

Google Will Move Https Search To New Domain

Google Will Move Https Search To New Domain

The introduction of encrypted search at https://www.google.com/ a month ago has increased the privacy of search engine visitors by preventing people from intercepting search terms and results. Encrypting all communication between the client’s computer and Google Search had a few side effects though. It was for one not possible to use all Google services. Google Image search was for instance not available for users who used the https version of Google. Organizations, companies and...
