Google’s newest feature, Search plus Your World, personalizes Google searches even further based on your Google+ account. When you enter a search query, Google will find results (or recommendations) based on who you follow on Google+ and what they’ve liked, suggested or searched for before. This can be an extremely useful feature, but sometimes you just want clean search results.
Here are some simple, step-by-step instructions on how to disable personal search results.
Even before Search Plus your World, though, Google was personalizing your search results based on your query habits so that sites you click more often show up higher for you. Google supplies rather difficult and aggravating instructions on how to turn this feature off, but by simply typing ‘&pws=0′ at the end of your search query, that particular search won’t give any personalized results.
