How to Manually De-Personalize Google Search Results …in Chrome

If you are doing any sort of SEO – it’s not uncommon to run hundreds of search queries per day in Google to get a feel for the neighborhood. Unfortunately, Google will alter your search results based on your own search history and habits.

This is all well and good – except that you will be getting a skewed view of the actual search results. In order to get an accurate search snapshot of your query (ie: the same results any typical Googler will see for the same query) – you will need to de-personalize your search results.

It’s quite easy to do this with Chrome.

How to Depersonalize Google Search Results in Chrome Properly

Steps:

1.) Go to CHROME > PREFERENCES > MANAGE SEARCH ENGINES

2.) Enter any name for your entry and .. Enter the following URL into the THIRD field

http://www.google.com/search?q=%s&pws=0

3.) Enter any keyword you would like.. into the KEYWORD field.

That’s about it.

So, for example if you used the keyword: pws, you would simply enter “pws” into the address bar, followed by a “TAB” to do a de-personalized search. You can also make this entry the DEFAULT METHOD of search so every search will be de-personalized.
