Use Private Search Engines

Most search engines capture details about your online activity. While this might offer the advantage of teaching a search engine your preferences and offering search results tailored to you, it's also provides the owners of the search engines with what might be very personal information you might not want to share.

To prevent your searches from being datamined, consider switching to a search engine that doesn’t track you and collect your personal information. Some options to explore include DuckDuckGo.com, Ixquick.com and StartPage.com.
