AOL Publishes a Database of Their Customer's Searches


By rants(80)



About a week ago AOL released search logs which contained 10.8m search queries from 658,086 unique users, collected between March 1 and 31 May this year.

This information has since been removed by AOL, however it can be found all over the Internet now. Identifying information was removed, however several searchers queried their own names. This is a huge breach of privacy on AOL's part, and this information should never have been collected in the first place...

This database gives insight into what people are thinking about, and some of this stuff is pretty disturbing. Some searches are funny, some are perverted, and some are basically illegal. You can search the database for yourself at the following website:
