This morning, I posted a support query in the deep and authentic Support Forum concerning previous discussions of the “Quantcast Pixel” that is loaded for each blog.  It seems that if you visit the Quantcast site, anyone can get information on your blog just by entering your blog name at the end of the Quantcast URL.  Here’s the text of my support inquiry — I have added the screenshots for this article:

The more technology seems to advance, the harder it is to get away from its watchful eye.  We cannot escape.  We cannot hide.  Every time you make a transaction at an ATM, the machine records that your account was accessed, at the exact time, at the exact place, with uncanny precision.  At a bank 100 years ago, do you imagine for a moment that the tellers were keeping track of every single transaction down to the second?  The New York City subway advertisements remind us that by buying a 30-day MetroCard, we are effectively paying less for using the subway now than we did in 1986.

Do you read news and blogs on the web via an RSS client? If yes, what RSS reader do you use?

I use Google Reader to watch my information because it is easy to use, it integrates with my iGoogle start page really well, and it beats the pants off every other RSS reader I’ve tried and I’ve tried them all.
Which sites do you read every day?

How many articles do you read per week? Do you share with others what you find? We know Google follows our Web History and knows our Search Wants — but are you aware if you use Google Reader you are also able to see how Google tracks your RSS trends? 

We all know Google knows everything about us.

How do you feel about that fact?

If you are logged into your Google account, do you know you can have Google show you a Web History of all your Google searches?

It’s a little creepy. It tells you a lot. Google Web History is a newish feature that isn’t getting a lot of play yet.

Google can remember all your web searches and provide context and analysis of who you are and what you needed. Google Web History can provide a scary look back in time over the course of who you are and what your searches want. You need to be logged into your Google account in order for your Web History to be recorded.
