How To Find Out What Google Thinks You Like

I’ve often said that there’s no privacy anymore, and that Google knows everything about you.

Ever wondered what Google thinks it knows?

Just click to http://www.google.com/ads/preferences and you’ll find out.

Here’s what Google thinks of me:

Category
Business – Advertising & Marketing – Marketing Services
Business – Management & Corporate Operations – Strategic Planning
Finance & Insurance – Investing
Internet – Web Design & Development
News & Current Events – Technology News
Shopping – Coupons & Rebates
Social Networks & Online Communities – Blogging Resources & Services
Society – Legal – Intellectual Property
Society – Social Science – Economics
Sports – Basketball

Wow, they’ve got me pegged to within an inch of my life. Though I’m mildly surprised that “Jessica Alba” didn’t at least make a brief appearance.
