AOL Search - Search History
The Search History feature keeps track of your searches for the last 30 days, making it easy to return to your previous search results. The Search History feature is available only when you are signed in, and AOL Search will display Search History only for searches done while signed in.
You can view your Search History on the left-hand column of the AOL Search page or by clicking on the Search History link at the upper-right corner of the page. This feature is available only when you are signed in.
To manage your Search History, click on the Search History link in the upper-right corner of the AOL Search homepage or a search results page. Websites you have visited from your searches on AOL Search are displayed below the search terms. You can view your search history by the type of search results, such as All, Web, Images or News. You can also sort your Search History by date or by search terms in alphabetical order.
In addition, you can search on the terms recorded in your Search History by clicking your search term link.
AOL Search offers you a Search History feature that keeps track of your searches for 30 days. Search History helps you get back to your previous search results faster; however, if you wish to keep your search private, you can clear your history. To clear your Search History, click on the Clear link on the left-hand column of the AOL Search page. Alternatively, you can view and clear your search history by following the steps listed below.
To clear Search History:
1. Go to search.aol.com.
2. Click Sign In.
3. Type your AOL Username or Email and Password in the text boxes and then click Sign In.

To suspend and stop tracking of your Search History, click on the Suspend link on the left-hand column of the AOL Search page. Or you can click on the Suspend History link on the Search History page. Suspending your Search History will not clear your existing history; you must use the Clear link to remove your Search History.
