Did you know that Google hosts alternate search web addresses in order to “hide” your searches? Normally, when you do a Google search, your search query is visible in the address bar. For example, a search in Google for “all your base” will give you the URL http://www.google.com.au/search?hl=en&q=all+your+base&btnG=Search&meta= or something like it.

If for some reason you don’t want prying eyes to easily find your search queries, then use the alternate URLs below. Yep, the following URLs are Google-owned and act as direct copy of the Google search page.

Keep in mind however that Google still keeps search history if you’re signed in (unless you tell it not to) and that anybody who knows the list of URLs above can still find out what you searched for by looking at your history. It just makes it a bit harder, that’s all. In any case, it’s still kind of useful.
