Google Hide Personal Results Button - FINALLY!

If you're like me, and you use Chrome, you have been scrolling down to the tools menu and hitting "show search tools" and then down again to "verbatim". What a pain in the tuckuss; to get the actual results I was wanting I had to jump through hoops. Sheesh.

Because I always want to omit my personal crapola (my social media and places visited) and actually search for something that I type into the search bar, I've been using other search engines a lot lately. And this has been a pain in the side for a very long time, for many of us.

In the beginning, you got real results. Life was good.  Then you got stuff added, like local search and google maps.  You now how to sort through a lot of stuff to get the actual results.

THEN, for awhile it was just logging out of Google to get actual results, albeit, with local and maps taking up a bunch of the page one results. then it was using the verbatim tool, but NOW, (Yippee!) there is a button at the top right of the google search page. A pair of buttons actually.

The little button on the left is the YOU button and the button on the right is the WORLD button.

When searching you now have a switch to turn off your stuff and see the real world results. I wish it was the other way around. That I could see the real world results without having to even use the world button. 

What's so hard about that?  Real search for real world results. Isn't that what we want anyhowsen?

I'm really not complaining as the button does save me time now. But still. You know, it is a search engine after all, isn't it?
