Google adds privacy link, avoids trouble
On Google's main page, one of the few places on the Internet where a dearth of content is beneficial, it's easy to notice when a single word changes, especially when it's one as hot as "privacy."
Where it once said "©2008 Google" at the bottom of the page, it now says "©2008 - Privacy." The change was announced on Thursday before the Independence day holiday as a word-for-word identical passage in blogs by Marissa Mayer Search Products and User Experience Vice President and Pablo Chavez, Senior Policy Council.
The change also occurred conspicuously closely to today's Senate Commerce Committee hearings regarding "Privacy Implications of Online Advertising."
On the "privacy center" page, it provides links to all the privacy sub-policies, including YouTube, iGoogle, Orkut, Goog-411, as well as AdSense, AdWords, and Google Analytics.
