In Google Web History, I can view all my past web searches.

How can I download this data, instead of viewing them page by page on the website?

Google now offers the ability to download your search history.

First, visit when you're logged in to your account. Then look for the options icon, and click download.

You'll be prompted to create an archive, and your history will begin downloading — it's as simple as that. The archive will be saved to your Google Drive in the form of a zip file that can be saved to your desktop computer.

Of course, you'll need to have your search history option turned on for the feature to work. If you've opted out of keeping a record of your search history, you'll find nothing available.

Nice, it's working. Before this, I couldn't believe Google is real on data liberation. – Pacerier May 24 at 22:16
