I was searching for a small clip of series "Scam 2003". Even I have turned off the youtube history long before coz the auto recommended videos of utube. Now while swiping down after 4-5 videos i got this short in between.
I have no words for this, what to say.

No one would be able to comment without knowing your browsing history bro. This also includes incognito searches, although they say they are not tracked, but I have felt suggestions even on my searches in incognito mode. 

Although it's possible to get these kinds of suggestions even if the history is completely clean.

Google tracks every single thing be it incognito. I do remember there was research report from some very prestigious university's computer science department that they even track your location when you have turned it off from the phone settings.

U must have searched for something related somewhere, that's why it's recommended to you.

I am not judging anyone.

If someone gets offended, it's ok.

Do you know that even if you talk about it Your smartphone captures what we talk and shows suggestions related to what was said

I don't know if it was a co-incidence or what, but one day I was discussing with my brother about sports school run by virendra sehwag. And just after a minute or two my brother saw advertisement for the same school on his facebook feed.

(He never searched for this topic or sports school before that)

I would rather recommend keeping the history on everywhere. Not that Google does something with our history but the very history will enable Algorithm to push more relevant videos for us to consume.

The moment we turn off history or wipe it, in most cases algorithm will push some random videos with high number of views or likes which may in many instances promote obscenity..

I never clear history nor use igcognito except when insisted during cc application etc. may be because of that YouTube never pushed irrelevant videos or shorts..

Mostly my recommendations on YouTube pushed by algorithm are relevant and useful to great extent. IMO. @1_DAY_U_MAY

Maybe you are right. The only reason to turn off history was whenever I used to open YouTube there were extremely useless video recommendations and reels, even the titles were irritating. In the end, I had to turn off the history.

Well you are lucky to have such educational recommendation from YouTube.

Instead of being thankful, you are complaining here.

Everyone knows about BJ but when, why, where, how to, how longer... etc is not a common knowledge.

Its not related to browsing history. Its related to trending videos it seems.


Or devices connected to Your WiFi network?? Because Google scans for nearby devices and other devices connected to your wifi network.

It's mobile data, and thank you, I wasn't aware of these educational videos. The last thing I was not complaining, just posted this to discuss the algorithm, etc.

YT algorithm sucks. It used to be so awesome even during corona. Now it recommends crap that I don't want to watch 99% of the time. Even search is useless now. It only pushes videos it wants you to see.
