I have read the official blog, but still I am not able to see how do I use this feature?

I have tried a lot of Google Searches but nothing shows up.

I have taken this pic from net, I do not see any such option anywhere while using Google Search. Google Search+ Your World

I have also tried looking at all my "Settings" - there is no mention of anything there at all!

Can anyone help me out here?

To see this option, you need to be logged into your Goolge account and then do a search. On the search results page, you will see that icon set to the top right.

After a search

You can see here the icons to turn this on or off or configure it.

Also, you can get to this in the search settings (while logged in) and turn on or off your personalized searches.

and also can you give me the link to where we get this "Personal Results" settings? – user221287 Jun 1 '12 at 18:27
@myselfpoddar All the feature of Search, plus your world are not yet available in our region(You're from India I believe). – Bibhas Jun 1 '12 at 18:28
@myselfpoddar The link to this is: google.com/preferences and again, you need to be signed in to save these settings to your profile. – zk. Jun 1 '12 at 18:29
@zk. I do not see any such setting there, I think that Bibhas is right, and it is not yet available in my region. – user221287 Jun 1 '12 at 18:31
