Sponsored Links Added to Google Search History

Now you can search and manage all the sponsored links you've clicked on Google's search results pages. Google Search History added a new section for Google ads, in the growing list of services available in this interface. This might be useful if you want to buy something, but you want to check other sites before actually ordering the product: you come back to the search history and have the links there.

Google also has a search engine that only shows sponsored links. Just in case you get bored with the actual search results.

  1. It seems that I have never clicked on any AdWords ad... ^^

  2. No, Tom. Search History started to monitor the clicks today. So it's not for the past clicks.

  3. It'd be interesting to know whether Google charges that advertiser for the subsequent clicks.

  4. Adam, no, Google does not charge the advertiser for clicks from sponsored links that appear in history.

  5. This is actually a smart move by them! "Why charge the advertisers once per click, when you can have consumers go back, click it, and charge the advertiser again!"

  6. Advertisers are not charged when you click on the links from Search History. It wouldn't be logical or fair to do that. Google lists them the same way they list your queries and the search results you've clicked.
