Last Visit Dates Added to Google SERP Listings EvilSaint msg:4356171 4:39 am on Aug 29, 2011 (gmt 0) Hi All, I was looking at Google Australia this morning, signed in. Using Firefox 5.0. Happened to do a search for a specific website and found that the link I had visited last week had the date shown underneath that listing with the words: "You last visited this page on 23/08/11." Anyone else seeing this? Is this something new? P.S. I found it kinda creepy :/

Aaron Wall just blogged about something he noticed (with a screenshot) that sounds similar: an unusually high ranking search result that included the line "You recently searched for [keyword]" as an explanation. If you let Google keep a history for you, they will definitely use it. anallawalla msg:4356226 9:35 am on Aug 29, 2011 (gmt 0)
< moved from another location > A colleague reported that when he was logged in and searched for a site he checks regularly, he noticed a numbered SERP, e.g.
1. (first result) 2. (second result) You visited this page on 23/08/11 I can only find one other instance [ news.softpedia.com] on the web but that example has a tiny avatar next to the "you visited" text and the entries are not numbered. No avatar in my colleague's example. Looks like a continuing trial. I can't reproduce it, but I rarely surf when logged in. [
