This is based on my personal experiences. So please do not try to prove me the opposite or do not judge me. I read people whose sites are getting banned, deindexed, sandboxed etc etc. I read threads about the sites slapped by google. That is my 2 cents:Except adsense and adwords, stay away from all google products. - stay away from gmail - never use webmaster tools - never use google analytics - never use chrome - never have a google product on your computer Believe me, these precautions will make you safer.
