Quick questions over to you:
- Did you read it full or you have just ignored like any unimportant messages appearing on your system?
- Have you understood what Google intended to say to its users?
- What was the message and how it is going to benefit everyone, if it is so?
- Was that anything special that could change your existing Google experience and control?
- Is it something that comes under Google’s promotional policies? What is it?
So what this new policy signifies to your world of Google. Here are a few points in brief.
Accessibility of personal information is more defined and restricted
Now if you do frequent searches on Rand Fishkin, next time when you are on Youtube for SEO tips, you would be presented with Rand’s You Tube videos.
The new policy is not changing any existing privacy control and settings
So just relax. Google is not collecting any new information about you which you think is sensitive . Like ever before Google never sells your personal data. You have the same industry-leading information security.
You can use search, maps and You Tube without sign in to your Google account. If you wish you can also separate your personal information in different accounts. This proves Google does not combine your personal information unless you intend to do this.
