Google and the others store their search data for 18 months or as long as the laws permit. Over the period of 18 months they have pretty much mapped you as a person. Ask has brought out what is called AskEraser and gives you the ability to immediately erase your search data. The question is, is this the answer to all our privacy concerns or just one more web tool that fails?
What is it that we are looking for relevant search results, the place where Google dominates or privacy? You can manually and even automatically delete your user data from Internet Explorer. I am not sure ASK is showing a decent attempt at web anonymity, but is that what people are looking for or?
