Google search history?

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to get google search history?
I'd like to see what I had searched each day.

I'm spying on myself, lol.

The reason is I'l like to re-enter some of my searches into other search engines so that they can benefit from my searches and maybe they have better answers for some of my searches.

I had seen in the past that I could download my search history but I don't see that option any more.

I guess I could write my own search page in php that submits my search to all the other search engines and maybe interweave the results. removing duplicates and I could have it archive my searches.

But I would like know if anyone knows how to get my search history from google since they changed things up? Processes that they describ to get the history no longer seem to work.

Re: Google search history?

I used a gnome plugin https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...jmaicoicjekelh

mkdir myactivity.google.com
cd myactivity.google.com
copied the cookies to cookies.txt like cookietxt-export says
then ran my script
cd $(dirname $(which $0))
wget -q -x --load-cookies cookies.txt https://myactivity.google.com/myactivity
sed 's/\(Searched for\)/\n\1/g' myactivity.google.com/myactivity|sed 's/\\x22]/\n/g'|grep "Searched for"|sed 's/^.*\\x3d//g'|sed 's/+/ /g' >>searches_.txt
sort searches_.txt|uniq > searches.txt
cp searches.txt searches_.txt
I'm thinking about editing it to date the file but for now that should get me some searches each day.
