Yeah, it's not like google would have a giant scanning tool that
downloads the content, processes, parses, classifies every web page out
Google will of course never ever generate and store in one of their
databases a hash of the url of each page they process. No, never ever
they will do that.
Also, google will never ever store your requests. They never store
anything for tra(ffi)cking.
