Google Search History


how many of you did know that all the searches you do on Google are actually stored and can be viewed too.!! ?

Shocked? It’s true. You can view your Google search history by clicking on this link:

Google Search History

This search history will be associated with a Gmail account i.e only those searches will be saved here which are done by you when you were actually logged-on to Google through any of the Google’s products and will be linked to your Gmail account. How to know that you are logged on or not? Simple – go to www.google.com and see at the top there will be something like this :

there will be your name at the top right side (This is for the new look of Google in which they have integrated it with Google+)

many users won’t be too happy on knowing that their history and actions are being recorded and saved by Google (for privacy or whatever reasons) so, for them there is an option to turn of this feature by clicking on the ‘Pause’ button in the Web history option as shown below.

Optionally you can also delete all of your previous history (by clicking on Remove all web history) or only some selective items (by clicking on Remove)

In the screenshot above, it shows “Your current search history is currently empty” because I had paused the feature of web history and hence no history was being saved.

Enjoy!😀
