Along these lines I have already removed Google from my broswer search engines. I have StartPage installed now, and while I'll leave it to my betters to compare the merits of them vs Duck Duck Go, the point is that because I spend all day at work logged into Gmail, they can't get much out of my occasional youtube searches.

Working on the basis that, if something said/done does not make sense, then ask the question "Under what circumstances would it make sense?", this could be a useful answer:
Why people have Google Search completely wrong

So this post makes good sense: Google is removing search results?
