    "Google will now begin encrypting searches that people do by default, if they are logged into Google.com already through a secure connection. The change also means that sites people visit after clicking on a result at Google will no longer receive "referrer" data that reveals what those people searched for, except in the case of ads." :eek:

    Well at least there is that, but it's bullsh*t regardless. How does what you search for on a public search engine a privacy concern? I really hope there is a big backlash.

    Oh, this is not they type of news I like to read.

    Don't know if /b/ or /i/ can do something or anything about this, I kind of doubt it but who knows.

    Nevertheless, this is crappy news.

    Does this mean Market samurai and other search type of software will be useless? Dude this is fucked. They waited till SEO is a big market and then they monetize this....typical google. I would lend a hand to ***** and Anonymous if that helps.

    this could be a game changer. In fact, some of the tools we use today might become useless.

    "might" ? :)

    It's surely a game changer ... how many times haven't many of us picked up long-tail traffic that they didn't ever think of and started drilling down for keywords in that topic ... now that's gone (almost completely)
