Google Tracking U

I noticed today that Google is keeping track of which links I click on. This has happened in the past. Google has said it is something they do in order to monitor the quality of their search results.

You can tell when Google is tracking clicks in the search results if, when you put your mouse on a link you see a URL similar to the following.


Normally the URL is: http://internetresults.blogspot.com/

I tried doing Google searches using other internet connections and the tracking URL did not appear. This is normal behavior. Google does not track everyone who does a search. What I found interesting is that even after I cleared my cookies, Google continued to track my clicks on search results anytime I used my main internet connection.
