A WebmasterWorld thread suggesting that to use the Google services they will make you sign in and if you sign in to every property, Google will be able to track your every move, likes, dislikes, searches, etc. Honestly, I doubt they will require you to sign in to do a search but it doesn't mean they won't cookie you and track you to YouTube, Gmail, Google Maps, your Android phone and so on.
