So do you think G0*gler watches those who read BWH?

    Gmailing, chatting, surfing the forum, playing with Keywords and Analytics, having your hosting account open, editing websites/domains, do you think that the G00gle notices this kind of habits and what sites you own and manage and that you also spend time on BHW or email or aim links related to BHW and devalues your sites?

    Am I just getting paranoid? Puts on tinfoil hat.

    You're probably just paranoid. The Big G certainly does have access to a lot of data, but compiling it all into meaningful information digestable by humans is hard.

    Obviously, they keep track of your website portfolio through the G0*gle webmasters page so only put in your good domains there; other than that, I don't think there's too many habits linked together besides email + chat + search history. They don't have as much jurisdiction outside of their products (except Analytics which gives them soooo much more reach).

    If you type in the BHW address directly, there's really no method I'm aware of that'll let them know you come here, short of magic. Basically, don't worry too much, get busy making money instead.
