Google tracks you by collecting your searches and sending them to the Google servers. sure it gives you good search results, but it violates your privacy.
I found a way how you can give personalized search results and not track anyone at the same time. maybe you can collect the search results, but instead of sending them to your servers, you will keep in the computer of the user so that the searcher gets good results, and not have their privacy violated.

Browsers use a thing called LocalStorage to store things like that, it's possible but some people delete the LocalStorage for wathever reasons, like privacy (me too). Maybe it could be added as an optional thing.

#1 is not what i'm talking about.
#2 is doable. you can store them localy, you just need to compress the searches

Search bubbling gives you very good and personalized search results by default. (it knows what you want)
