i want to know how to back up of google web-history

    Hi Arvind,

    I am really sorry to say, this isn’t possible. Due to security, data protection and other reasons Google has never disclosed their format of storing web history. Hence no one has ever come up with something to back up Google web-history.

    I would suggest, an alternate though, to use firefox for all Google operations and back-up Firefox data (not profile). This would help you to look for previous searches.
