Can't remember that website you visited two years ago? Need to find a news story you clicked on back in March? Or maybe you just want to find out what websites you visit the most. No problem. As long as you were logged in to your Google account, you can easily find that website using Google Web History.
Visit the Google Web History page by clicking on the link in the Resources section of this article.
Enter your Google email address and password into the blank fields on the upper-right part of the screen.
Click the "Sign in" button. Your most recent web history will now appear at the top of the screen. Notice the calendar on your right, which displays both your total number of Google searches and the days on which you had the most search queries.
Click on the calendar in the upper-right portion of the screen to view your Google search activity on that particular day. Also notice the number beneath the calendar that gives the total number of Google search queries you have entered.
To find a specific site you visited earlier, enter a relevant keyword into the blank field at the top of the screen. Click "Search History."
Use the menu on the left side of the screen to categorize your search history. This will help you narrow your search to find a particular map, news story, image, or video.
Click on "Trends" to find your most popular searches. Google will categorize your trends according to your most popular queries, sites, and clicks.
Want to remove an item from your Google search history? Just click "Remove items" and proceed to check the desired sites. To clear your search history, just click "Clear entire Web history."
Don't want any more searches to show up on Google Web History? Not a problem. Just be sure to sign out of your Google account before your next web search.
