Google Web History (previously Google Search History) is a feature of Google Search and provided by Google, in which all search queries and results that a user clicks on are recorded. The feature is only available for users logged into a Google Account. The feature was renamed from Search History to Web History on April 19, 2007.[1] A user's Web History is used to personalize search results with the help of Google Personalized Search[2] and in Google Now.


Google search engine searches more than just your questions, it matches the words you search with other online posts and files that have the same words, so you get more options and more answers, if you don't find what you're searching for, try rewording your question, often you will discover your question popping up after you type only a few words, and then you can go directly to the answer you were searching for. Google makes it possible and easy for everyone.
