    How to view unbiased search results?


    Google tends to give you search results based on past search queries that you've done. How do you do a search to get the unbiased results? I know there are tools that allow you to do the search and get accurate results returned. Thanks!

    You can log out of an account, clear your browser cache and view that way but I think what you are really after is the following

    http://google.com/search?q=seo&pws=0

    Make the pws parameter in the URL = 0 and hit enter, this will turn off personalized search.

    How to view unbiased search results?
    As trevor says PWS=0 turns of personlized search but I no longer think it is possible to view totally unbiased search results. This is beacause now everyone is viewing biased results. I know that geo wise search results differ depending on where you are in the world. I also know that nothing I have tried allows you to view the results of another geo location the same way people in that location see results (for many searches). Thus your results will have a geo bias. If you can turn of geo bias you will be viewing results that no one else sees (for many searches). There is IMO no longer a "pure" set of results that are seen everywhere by everyone...

    Is pagewash.com a legit site? It seems shady. I just went to the site.

    There's lots of advertising on there for web games. The site just doesn't look legitimate.

    Well it's free and I would guess they need to pay the bills in some way.
    I'm guessing it's legit, I've used it ever since KP turned my on to it with no problems.
    When did advertising make a site not legit?
