I have been getting a LOT of spam on gmail after I do a Google search. For example, I did a search for a government facility called HARPP. After that, I'm suddenly getting a bunch of spam for products of that name or similar.

Does Google send my searches out for people to find?

    Maybe you should do a malware scan on your computer. – Vidar S. Ramdal Jan 31 '14 at 8:24

Might be. But you can clear your Google web history and turn it off also if you want.
