Research: Online Service Provider Assessment Project: Methodology: Search Facility
Search for category G, category H, category I, and category J word lists, from
Appendix D: Word Lists, both on the service and from
the service to web sites outside the service. If the online service provider has a
keyword navigation system, like that of AOL, then check it using the same method used
for the search facility.
A methodology for determining whether online banner ads are targeted to types of
searches entered by a user is under development. Such ad targeting may be a violation of
the user's privacy, resulting in untimely and damaging disclosures of a person's sexual
orientation, gender identity, or health status (particularly HIV/AIDS/cancer status).
