The Top 5 Things You Should Never Google
1. Your symptoms
First of all, let’s talk about your health problems. There are many websites that specialize in such content, and, of course, most of them are not managed by medical professionals. Looking up the meaning of your symptoms on the internet will definitely not help you. Quite the reverse — it will make you feel worse and panicked. If you have any kind of health issues, don’t ask “Doctor Google.” Schedule a visit to a real doctor instead.
2. Anything criminal
Ok, this one is serious. You may try to look up things like “how to make a bomb“ or ”how to make amphetamines” out of pure interest. However, keep in mind that security and drug control services always track these kinds of searches, and your IP address can appear in such a database. You don’t want to get in trouble because of your curiosity, do you?
3. Skin conditions
There are many diseases connected with the skin, and most of them look really bad. For some reason, you can find online images of almost all of them. However, it’s much better to stay ignorant in this case because this kind of content can be extremely disturbing. Please do not look up genital infections either.
4. Your name
It’s not a big secret that in the era of the internet our privacy is greatly questioned. If you try to google your name, most probably you will stumble upon some unpleasant results. Bad photos of you, outdated information, irrelevant content — we take such things way too seriously. If you find something like this, you’ll want to delete it all. However, that’s not a simple thing to do. Maybe we should take it easy? Or simply don’t google it.
5. Bedbug infestations
You’ve probably heard about these little monsters, especially from any kind of hotel reviews. And maybe even some of you have experienced their harm on your own skin. But have you ever thought what bedbug infestations look like? If you want to continue sleeping at night, you won’t look it up. Please, don’t.
