Farid Mheir's curator insight, May 11, 2:00 PM

This is a very good run down of what you'll find out when you go to google history or google dashboard to find out what Google knows about you.

history.google.com/history

https://www.google.com/settings/dashboard 

 

That being said, and as i've noted before, this is not everything they know about you: Google infers a lot from your web activity outside the realm of google properties via the ad beacons they place all over the web. Moreover, Google predicts and creates a user profile of you - and this information they do not share with you!
