Google Web History

What can you tell me about Google Web History? Anything would be very helpful!

Well, lucky for you (and everyone else who reads this newsletter), I can tell you quite a bit about it! Google Web History is yet another new feature that Google has recently released. So, if you’re an avid Google user, this is another service you’re definitely going to want to check out. Let’s take a look at what all it includes, shall we?!

First of all, with Google Web History, you’re able to view and manage your Web activity. Okay, here’s the scenario: you’re surfing through the Web and you come across a Web site that you just instantly fall in love with. The only problem is that you get so caught up in looking at the site that you forget to add it to your Favorites list. Oh no! What are you going to do now? You search and search for it, but you’re just not able to find it again. So, you’re sitting there completely bummed, wondering what you can do next.

And that’s when Google Web History comes in to save the day! With it, you can view and even search across the Web pages you’ve visited. You’ll get the full text pages as well, so you don’t have to worry about just getting a portion of the sites you love. You can find pages on everything you’ve done from Web sites you’ve visited, Google searches you’ve made, images, videos, news stories and more. You can even manage your history at any second’s notice. For instance, if once you get going with this new feature, you start to accumulate too many sites, you can remove them from your list at any time.

What else can you do with Google Web History? Well, you can get the search results that are most relevant to what you’re looking for. Web History helps to give you a more personalized version of your search results. They’re based on past searches you’ve done and the Web sites you visit the most. All of that information is recorded within your history to give you the most useful tips ever. Now, when you first start using Web History, you may not notice a huge change in your results, but as you use it more and more, you’ll see some steady improvements.

Lastly, with Google Web History, you are able to follow interesting trends in your Web activity. For example, how many Web sites do you visit on a regular basis? Or how about how many searches did you perform between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.? Web History keeps track of all that information, as well as, any other interesting trends it finds along the way. So, if you need to know something right away about your Web activity, just check your Web History account and all the information will be right at your fingertips!

Now, that’s just a small portion of what you can do with Google Web History, but I think you get the idea! You do need to have a Google account to be able to use this service, so if you don’t have one already, you can sign up right here. Otherwise, go to this Web site and log in to your brand new Google History account. You can also click on the link that says “Web History Help” if you have some more questions about it or if you just want to learn a little more about it before you start using it.

Google Web History works similarly to any other Google service, so you know that it’s not hard to use. Just take your time and experiment with it. I think you’ll find that it really does keep track of a lot of useful information for you. And hey, it’s easier to let Google do it for you, don’t you think? Give it a try today and change your outlook on Web history in a matter of seconds. Have fun, my Google friends!
