a bot accessed a hidden url

#2
It is amazing where and how the search engines collect data and combine it. I was at a customers site the other day and was logged into my gmail. We were talking about this stuff so as a test I googled 'where am I' and google maps showed a marker exactly where I was. I was amazed at first but I am guessing it recognized the IP address, associated that IP with the company, and was able to locate me exactly on the map. But how clever is that!

As for your URL, I am guessing that you tested it on a live site, and that you typed the url into a browser, so the url was sent out into the wild, where somewhere it was recorded and collected by BING. Or perhaps you have ads on your site, so an add was delivered to the url, or perhaps you have bing tracking on your site, to the page was pinged over to bing when you visited it.

The power of tracking online by search engines is becoming quite scary if, like me, you fear the might of an unfriendly government and it's powerful listening secret agencies. Yes we have a 'friendly' government at the moment, but who knows what might happen.

I have recently started using https://duckduckgo.com/ and have had a play with the Tor Browser https://www.torproject.org/ which is very good. Not sure it will really make any difference.

Best wishes,

Paul.
