Since there is no user interface in Gnome 3, copy the following files

/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-flickr.desktop
/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-fs.desktop
/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-store.desktop

to your .config/autostart directory and edit all of them setting this value to false:

X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false

Done.

Since there is no user interface in Gnome 3, copy the following files

/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-flickr.desktop
/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-fs.desktop
/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-store.desktop

to your .config/autostart directory and edit all of them setting this value to false:

X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false

You can also delete .cache/tracker directory - this is where Tracker stores the index. It can be quite huge (1 GiG for me). Then kill all tracker processes or restart your computer.

Done.

Since In GNOME 3.2 there is was no user interface in Gnome 3, so the only way was to copy the following files

/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-flickr.desktop
/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-miner-fs.desktop
/etc/xdg/autostart/tracker-store.desktop

to your .config/autostart directory and edit all of them setting this value to false:

X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=false

You can also delete .cache/tracker directory - this is where Tracker stores the index. It can be quite huge (1 GiG for me). Then kill all tracker processes or restart your computer.

Done.Newer GNOME 3 version support that.
