How to Pull the Google Search History by an IP Address

When you activate Google Search History, Google remembers every search that you perform. This feature helps users find websites that they visited in the past quickly. You can search Google History from your Google Web History page. For instance, to find all sites that you visited containing the word "mountain," enter "mountain" as your search term. You can also pull Google Search history results for a specific IP address.
