First of all, I’ve not posted in a month. There’s been a variety of reasons for this, such as me forgetting my password so I couldn’t blog at work, me being very busy at Comcar, Willshaw Media, Skeater Media and at home, and some other stuff to.
Aaaaaaaaaaanyway here’s something interesting…
Big deal. Who cares. I get an error message to my email account, life goes on.
WHEN SUDDENLY!!! Within 5 minutes I got another error email. Someone else had visited this incorrect made up page…
Who be following me around the web then? If I visit a page on my blog that doesn’t exist, there’s surely no links to it. Surely not! I should know after all, I host the dang thing. So how did someone else get to the page?!
So I checked the second email message, and it was my old enemy, Google Bot. Why did Google Bot follow me to a page that doesn’t exist on my site.
Because Google Bot is an addict. An addict for indexing. And I use Google Chrome, who clearly passes all your information straight to Google Bot.
I’ve suspected this for many a year, and been fairly certain of it, but that pretty much cements my theory.
If you use chrome, and type in a URL, Google Bot will rush over their to check that shit out, like an excited Labrador chasing a shiny ball that’s caught it’s eye.
So will I keep using Chrome? Fuck yeah! Chrome is awesome, and I’d be naive, stupid and idiotic to think that Chrome is the only thing that sells on my data.
I complained to Co-op or Iceland in the same week a while back… ever since then I get about 5 porn emails to my Hotmail account. Is that their way of getting back at me for whinging?
So in summary, if you are a live today, you are constantly be tracked and followed all the time. If you use the internet, you make it about 345,454,671,234.67 times easier for someone to follow you.
