Google and your search history

Has anyone noticed that a Google search now displays how many times you have been to a certain website and the last time you visited if it comes up in the search? More of our personal information stored on those famous US servers.

  1. Neillist, unless I am mistaken, these records of revent visits shouldn’t register unless yo uare simultaneously logged in to another Google function such as Gmail or Google docs. Is your experience otherwise?

  2. I think since sometime this past summer. They rolled it out as a “your web history” feature that you could register for even if you don’t have any other google-owned accounts (as if people were really clamoring for a web browser that would show their web history to anyone who used that computer? guess you never know…).
