Does a search engine own the searches people perform?

Question by stonerosedesigndotcom: Does a search engine own the searches people perform?
Suppose a person thinks up a name for a new product and searches it to see if anyone else is using it.

Does the search engine now own that search term? (can it make a list of all the non-common search terms that occur every day and perhaps sell it to a company that thinks up new names for products?)

yes, Google in particular are believed to building up a massive data base on its users- it is in bed with the intelligence services particularly the Mossad as they share the same surburb of Tel Aviv.
They’re effectively ‘fingerprinting’ their users – they are also believed to be involved in DNA research which in the long run can be also employed to make everyone online transparent.

Does a search engine own the searches people perform?

Question by stonerosedesigndotcom: Does a search engine own the searches people perform?
Suppose a person searches an engine because they are considering trademarking a term or patenting an idea…does the search engine have the right to sell those terms to perhaps a marketing research company?

What promises does a search engine make to not profit from the terms people use to search with?

Answer by jman
There is no promise made for not selling terms. As a matter of fact, that is how Google blew up to be so big. They sell key words. The way it works is when you type in a key word such as “cars” companies such as BMW, FORD, MERCEDES pay to be at the top of the list when searches come back. All the items on the right of a google search result page are the paid ads. So yes, people make a profit off of words.

Is this a good SEO technique? List hundreds of cities in the US to capture long tail searches?

Question by Ryan Dick: Is this a good SEO technique? List hundreds of cities in the US to capture long tail searches?
I heard that Google will punish our site if it sees a list of 50+ cities on our website. Is this true? Can we include a laundry list of hundreds of cities in the US in efforts to capture more long tail searches? We offer our services nationwide and have noticed more and more people searching for “our service in atlanta” or “our service plano, tx” and landing on our site.

By the way, we provide sign spinners to apartment communities throughout the country: http://www.SignSpinnersForApts.com

Thanks!

Short answer:

No, you will not be punished.

Slightly more detailed answer:

If you service a city, you have every right to list it on any or all of your websites pages. However, for every city you add to a webpage, the focus on your main keywords will lessen a tiny bit and you may have to add a bit more keyword rich content to restore the main focus of the page back to your main product keywords so your site does not appear to be too spammy by the search engine. Last year, I added a list of over 100 US and Canadian cities plus all 50 states to every page of a clients 500+page website. The company is based here in Illinois. In over a year they haven’t been punished at all.

You can see for yourself by doing a google search for the phrase “discount headstones Orlando FL” and see my clients website on the first page of the results given. To find out exactly what website belongs to my client, you will have to check out my portfolio on my website. Ok, ok, I’ll give you a hint. There website sells headstones in the USA. That should be a good enough clue, but I would appreciate the visit to my site though, lol

Happy holidays!
