How To Permanently Turn Off Personal Search Results in Google

Not sure if you are like me, but I use both Bing and Google for search.  Lately, my top 10 or so search results on everything I type are from my Google circles people.  The problem is I want the best or most popular answer, not the one that one of my google circles people may have typed.  So, here are the steps:

1.  Search for something on Google.

2.  Click on the little wheel in the upper right


3.  Choose Search Settings


4. Change the results to not use personal results


5. Press Save.


That’s it! Now, things are as they were.

    Amazon is great, but may also end up as expensive. What if you have few TB’s of data, that you want to access remotely, with Amazon (if I remember correctly) you need to pay few hundred bucks monthly just to have it there well it’s not surprise, however in such more extreme case, colocation of your own data storage server ends up cheaper
