Google introduces Search History

I was googling when I noticed a yellow bar above the results. They introduced what they call as Search History. If you are signed in while searching Google will store your searches and slowly learn your preferences. That is, the more you search, better and more personalized results will be shown to you. Of course you can turn this feature of easily. Look what they have said in their own description of the new service.

What’s Personalized Search?
Personalized Search is part of Google’s
ongoing effort to make your search experience more relevant to you. Using
Personalized Search, you can:

• Get the results most relevant to you, based on what you’ve searched
for in the past• View and manage your past searches, including the webpages,
images, and news headlines you’ve clicked on
• Create bookmarks you can access from any computer

Personalized Search orders your search results based on your past
searches, as well as the search results and news headlines you’ve clicked on.
You can view all these items in your Search History and remove any items you’d
Early on, you may not notice a huge impact on your search results, but
as you build up your search history, your personalized search results will
continue to improve.
To sign up for this service, just visit http://www.google.com/psearch
delete this service at any time, visit https://www.google.com/accounts/DeleteService?service=hist

This new feature is not limited to Google’s web search but is extended on all services such as Google News and other services. Use it and post your opinion here.
