Here's a link to search results on the Chrome app store (mentioned by StillADotcommer) for "do not track," in case you want to shop around or read some reviews...

The easy way is go to the Google Chrome App store, or whatever they call it, and add an extension to Chrome.  There are a few different options there, I personally use the AVG Do Not Track extension because I use their anti-virus suite and trust them more than some developer I don't know anything about. The others probably are fine, to be fair, but like they say, just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean that they aren't watching you!

Check the Chrome extensions available. I think you can find some very robust tools that will help provide a greater range of tracking protection.
