Then the science work gets translated into a pubic search engine service through a large company - because that job TAKES big resources these days. Cuill learned that lesson!
Your inadvertent "typo" / "slip" there ( the missing "l" ;-)) ..is probably much more accurate than many would acknowlege as to what modern culture has become and what the largest proportion of searches are really about.."the elephant in the room"..pron and s_e_x related searches :)
G also knows what each person searches, even in "private mode"..and who they are ..again they learned what are the levers of power, and how to apply them, and to whom , from religious history..
Hence probably, the very minimal "slaps on the wrist", they receive for lawbreaking..in return for not leaking search history of the names of the mighty..
They are not about focusing upon their users, other than as part of a series of studies of what makes societies "tick", what motivates them and their members, and how they can be steered and influenced ..
The search and many other things are now merely the sideshow ( that nevertheless provides the income for the experimentation ) and the various baits placed before the "users", and the users reactions to them tell the plex many things..very many which the users keep hidden ( in every day society and family etc ) about themselves..
They know that the average user does not care for the most "in depth" answers to many questions ( and with an average adult reading level of a 10 year old ? , would not understand the "in depth" replies ) ..the average "user's interests" ( meaning the average human ) have changed little, if at all in the last few thousand years..
It is fascinating watching them do it, offering, recording, sifting, and molding society, never before, has a secular power arisen with the ability to shape the future that they have..
