Google brings personalized searches for all, which will alter your Google search results in a big way. For some, that may prove beneficial, but others may not find that useful. With Google Personalized results, users are served the results which they frequently use for a particular keyword.
Tip: Disable Google Instant Previews.
What are Google Personalized Search Results?
Google Personalize Search will show you those frequent results in your personalized searches which you use frequently. For example, like if you search for some Technology blog for most of your news and other information, then every time, Google will show that particular blog in your search results. To some, it’s a great news but the one who would like to explore other blogs related to the same keyword, would not find that useful. Google Personalized searches is like restricting your SERPs to few blogs which you like and use.
Google Personalized Search Results are history based. They are based on users’ web history. But what if some other day, a good new blog is added or some other blogs have much better information which you want to look for. That’s where it does not work and restrict to your few searches. No matter, whether you are signed-in or signed out, Google Personalized Searches still works. But there’s a way out, if you are not finding the Google Personalized searches useful, you can turn them off.
