Your Conversation with Google AI Bard, No Longer Private. Now Indexed on Search Results

8

Unlike the OpenAI ChatGPT that allows users to maintain their private conversations, Google Bard, the search giant’s conversational AI product, has been re-programmed to share users conversation and indexed them on search results. Now, just like Quora, any secrets questions can be found on by third party through a simple search.

 

This came to core after the recent time Google Bard AI underwent a big update last week. The update which had gifted it mixed reviews, did not recede but proceded this week to another older Bard feature. This, though has come under scrutiny as SEO consultant Gagan Ghotra observed that Google Search had begun to index shared Bard conversational links into its search results pages, potentially exposing information users meant to be kept contained or confidential.

 

An online platform serving as a digital square, the VentureBeat, noted that this newest update means that if a person used Bard to ask it a question — possibly even a question related to the contents of their private emails — then shared the link with a designated third-party, say, their spouse, friend or business partner, the conversation accessible at that link could in turn be scraped by Google’s crawler and show up publicly, to the entire world, in its Search Results.

 

On X (formerly Twitter), Ghotra posted a screenshot of evidence of several Bard conversations being indexed by Google Search.

 

Google Brain research scientist Peter J. Liu replied to Ghotra on X by noting that the Google Search indexing only occurred for those conversations that users had elected to click the share link on, not all Bard conversations, to which Ghotra patiently explained: “Most users wouldn’t be aware of the fact that shared conversation mean it would be indexed by Google and then show up in SERP, most people even I was thinking of it as a feature to share conversation with some friend or colleague & it being just visible to people who have conversation URL.”

 

An exclusive invite-only evening of insights and networking, designed for senior enterprise executives overseeing data stacks and strategies.

 

Ultimately, Google’s Search Liaison account on X, which provides “insights on how Google Search works,” wrote back to Ghotra to say “Bard allows people to share chats, if they choose. We also don’t intend for these shared chats to be indexed by Google Search. We’re working on blocking them from being indexed now.”

 

Even though Google says it is working on a fix, the mistake does not reflect well on Bard or Google’s consumer AI ambitions, especially in the face of intense competition from other rival AI chatbots like OpenAI’s popular ChatGPT. Hopefully Google’s new AI, Gemini, will offer a better and more private experience.

    Having read this I thought it was rather informative.
    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this
    short article together. I once again find myself spending way
    too much time both reading and leaving comments.

    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to know so much about this, like
    you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you simply
    can do with some p.c. to force the message
    home a bit, however other than that, this is wonderful blog.
    A great read. I’ll definitely be back.

    Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty
    finding one? Thanks a lot!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog
    and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or
    advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
