    Not sure If I'm just beginning to get paranoid, but do any of you guys ever take precautions so make sure that Google know little about your IM searching habits? Do you think the have algorithms to check that sort of thing?

    Actually they do track you.
    That's why I log out everything G before I come here or go somewhere "questionable" :ranger:

    I've never worried about that kind of stuff.

    I do all the time too. I go back and forth on it.

    I've never used my VPN for that, but I do logout every time I check my email accounts.

    Google, like every business in the world, is concerned about one thing.

    Getting paid.

    Why do they boot adsense accounts? Because those accounts are at risk to cost them more money from advertiser backlash.
    Why do they suspend google checkout accounts? Because those accounts are at high risk for costing them money through chargebacks, not delivering items, etc...
    Whey do they suspend ___________________?
    Deindex?

    Any action they do can be brought back to the fact that they're a for profit business.

    They only care about your search habits to make you click on more relevant ads. If there was a way to either monetize your searches better, or reduce their costs from scanning your searches, it will happen. So no, I don't think any searches your perform on google whilst logged in will cause any issues. People search for all kinds of crazy stuff all day. There are half a million members on here. How many of them do you think are searching for IM stuff, while logged into gmail?

    I don't bother about that, i open my gmail on on tab, blackhatworld on another tab and a porn site on another tab also. I have been doing that for a years now with no problem.
