Cybertips – Serving yourself for Lunch

If you use Google to search don’t be surprised when your email account becomes jam packed with ads related to that search.

For an easy example, take; ‘Cruises’.  Shortly after,ads for cruises will explode all through your email and on every social network you use.

This is because Google makes money selling your personal information.

This fact has been mentioned many times, but most people shrug their shoulders and think, well, so what?

Unlike other media where an advertisement for Viagra can be shown to a group of Nuns, the Internet, via Google, can target its base.

You use Google for a search on any saleable commodity, you are asking for trouble. 

Companies,  for a ‘small’ payment,  can have their products, services, etc. listed First in a Search.  

As anyone who has ever searched knows, what appears on the first page is taken for It is rare someone would go to the second, and even rarer to the third page of a Google Search.

This means, Google can control what you see by putting the paying sites on the Front Page.

If you are looking up anything that can be sold, don’t use Google.
