no they can't, nor can they even if they do.

it's impossible to completely prevent google tracking without going
fully offline, and even then, google can (and does) gather information
on you in *other* ways. 

for example:
<http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-40027706>
  Announcing the service, Google said that it captures around 70% of
  credit and debit card transactions in the US.

you would need to pay cash for *everything* to avoid that, or hope that
you're always in the 30% that isn't captured. 

google's entire business model is tracking and they have ways of doing
it in ways you can't even begin to imagine.

if you don't know how they're doing it, you can't even start to block
it.
