The title pretty much summarizes what I want to know. Long time ago, I remember something called Google Custom Search, but I'm afraid that Google shut down that service too. Anyway, I love to bookmark on Google Bookmarks and also I like that Google keeps a record of every single search that I make, but it seems that Google Search doesn't want to include them on my normal queries.

I want to know if I can configure to do that. No plugins, no URLs other than Google.com. Is this possible? If so, please tell me how.

  • Google Custom Search is alive and well and can be found at cse.google.com

If you are using Google's Chrome browser, or Firefox (optionally with the awesome Omnibar add-on), you will get direct suggestions from your history/bookmarks, if you search from the browser's address bar.

The matching is based on keywords -and optionally bookmark tags-, but I am not sure if the results (= suggestions) are prioritized on their type.

  • That is the thing @pleinolihg I wonder if Google do that! My guess is that they doesn't do that because the may close bookmarks service someday. Commented Oct 17, 2012 at 18:38
  • Also, my problem with the plugins is that I used several Google Chrome/Firefox profiles. Don't ask :) Commented Oct 17, 2012 at 18:39
  • Well, I suppose Google themselves don't integrate your bookmarks when you do a search, although I can't back that up with facts. I have no idea browse history-wise.

  • @pleinolijf, it will search your Chrome bookmarks, not your Google Bookmarks Commented Oct 18, 2012 at 14:47
  • ok, for me is pretty clear now, it seems that google doesn't have a way integrate those results on search but I have to look in the google.com/bookmarks it self, thank to all Commented Oct 21, 2012 at 5:15
