Geek Tip: Get Your Google History

I used to think I visited 1,000 websites a day. Now I know that number is more like a bagillion. Last week, Google released a feature that allows you to keep track of your slice of the web with Web History, a new feature for Google Account users that makes it easy to view and search across the pages you've visited. It is easy as pie to access and allows you the ability to revisit sites you saw earlier and retrace your steps on the web. For an ADD blogger like myself, it's heaven.

Web History lets you look back in time, revisit the sites you've browsed, and search over the full text of pages you've seen. It's your slice of the web, at your fingertips.

How does Web History work? All you need is a Google Account and the Google Toolbar with PageRank enabled. The Toolbar, as part of your browser, helps us associate the pages you visit with your Google Account. If you're currently a Search History user, you'll notice that we've renamed Search History to Web History to reflect this new functionality.

You can sign up for Web History through your Google account.

Hrmm I dont know, it's a little big brother ish for me. I think I'll stick with my system of bookmarking if it's good enough to visit again.

Sweet. I'll have to do this, because I don't store my history at work and I can never remember the great sites I come across once I get home.

Oh, awesome! Thanks for the tip. I'm always wondering what site I was on when I saw this or that and can never remember the URL.
