http://www.abine.com/dntdetail.php They have other services like delete me from online public search for sale also, but this program they offer free for both internet explorer and google crome. (The download is automatically installed to both)

You can see which companies are trying to track you, like google analytics, and facebook, ad companies, and social network companies. I have blocked over 7500 tracking attempts in just the first 2 weeks alone, as the average tracking attempts are 2-5 per page.

Interesting enough is that none of the government web sites I have visited show any tracking activity as of yet, however, as some of you know google is in cooperation with NSA. There is some benefit to this however, if you have an online business, as google analytics and their adwords campaign you can set up yourself, gives you information about how well your web page attracts business for you, so IM not all together against google, let me say.

Google and other small business development companies like manta can be a benefit to america by helping start up businesses. I beleive if people can sell things from their home they have a great edge over corporations who have to spend billions of dollars on buildings. One example of this was proven with Pier One Imports which almost went bankrupt until they increased their internet presence. JC Penneys is currently facing bankruptcy but not as deep as Pier One was, watch and see how they come out of it with increased internet sales. Amazon was a genius for being one of the pioneers of this and are now an internet giant, as well as ebay. Sears is also poking their head into online sales.

We can create jobs by developing our own internet stores, too, as our overhead is lower than theirs, we can restore the quality and selection that is absent in our market due to the high cost of corporatism and importing products from overseas.

I thought of making an online marketplace for us we the people, where people who may have a skill, but lack the marketing of their product can add it to our "peoples market" online to increase our selection, as I have seen that quality still exists in some peoples home made stuff. Maybe Im just a dreamer huh?

It would be aweful if trackers started making connections
