Google Reminds You That You Recently Searched For Facts

Oct 22, 2013 • 8:21 am | comments (6) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine

You know when you search for something in Google and click on a result, then come back later and search again. Sometimes you will see a message under the search snippet that reads, "you visited this result on X" or something like that?

Well, now Google showing some users a different message, a message that reads:

You recently searched for facts

Here is a picture of what it looks like, as provided by Chase Billow:

Google You recently searched for facts

This happens when you search, click on a result, and then click back or repeat a similar search.

Chase Billow shared this on Google+ and Eric Wu gave me the gentle heads up.

That's not just for "facts" but for any keyword where they think there could be some relevance in a chain of queries. So you can search for like boston celtics or downtown boston ... then search for hotels or such... and in some cases that subsequent search will have a few of the listings localized to boston hotels & one of the listings might have that "you recently searched for" near it

If I buy Google Glass, will Google remind me where I left my car keys?

Of what use is it t remind a person that he had searched for some "facts? sometime ago? Is such reminders necessary?
