Starting today, Google's new unified privacy policy kicks in, meaning that your web browsing history can be tracked and shared been other Google products like Google+ and YouTube. So if that strikes you as a bit invasive, there's an easy way to turn it off.

Just make sure you're logged into Google and go to https://www.google.com/history. Select "Remove All Web History." This will stop the site from tracking your web history until, and only if, you opt back in.

You should also go to YouTube, which appears to have TWO separate History settings. First, go to http://www.youtube.com/my_history and both clear your history and pause it. Then click on the "Search History" tab from the left column and repeat.

"When a company with as many services as Google is collecting so much information across so many services and combining them into a personal file about you, it naturally raises a lot of questions and concerns," says Ioana Rusu, Policy Counsel for Consumers Union. "Some of the most popular sites on the web belong to Google. If you're online, one way or the other, you're going to run into a Google product. If you don't like the idea of Google being able to collect your activity on all these different sites into a single dossier, there are some steps you can take to minimize the data that Google gathers about you, but the size and scope of this effort are still troubling."

Every website you visit keeps the same logs. Google simply offers more services than those do.

Every website you visit logs your ip address, what site pointed to you to it, what you looked at, and a lot of other stuff. To think otherwise is foolish. It's what they do with that info that matters.

You could just go ahead and log on as usual, and nothing bad will ever happen to you. Except for stuff that actually matters. Say global warming, which the google alarmists dismiss while they rail about things that have no significance whatsoever.
