Default Who does google think you are?

Found this page Google Ads Preferences Manager in this article. Everybody knows google has a profile for you based on searches and such but didn't know you could look at yours.

Could have guessed mine

Interesting that the profile differs between the browsers I use (tend to keep non-work related stuff in Firefox at work). So the cookie stored in each browser gives a profile, so shared browsers will give strange profiles (or a checkup on others in the family...).

It says I'm 20 years older than I actually am. I blame all the miata related searches.

I searched for wedding rings sans diamonds last night to show my girlfriend that rings don't need diamonds to be classy. That is the only wedding searching I have ever done that I am aware of. What about all the torrents and miata and subaru and skiing and other stuff I search for? Does it not notice when I search through the address bar in chrome?

Kind of interesting.

Google has two very different opinions of me based on my desktop PC vs. my laptop.

The desktop profile actually nailed it pretty closely apart from the age:




The laptop is closer to knowing my actual age (still a bit off), but aside from that I have no idea where they came up with this stuff:



Campers & RVs? Beauty & fitness? Tablet PCs? Shopping? Theme parks?
