Google search history

If you use Google's search engine to search the web, if you're logged into a Google account, such as a Gmail account, while performing the searches, you can see a history of the searches you have performed by visiting while logged into that same account. There you will see a graph displaying the number of searches you've performed over the last few days and the total number of searches during that time period, plus your top search clicks. You can change the time period displayed to be last week, last month, last year, or all time.

At the top of the page are some icons that you can click on to search, go to date (see searches on a particular date), and download searches. E.g., if I click on the "go to date" option, a calendar is presented allowing me to pick a date, so that I can see the searches I conducted through Google on that particular date.
