    How are results generated when typing search item on google data and personalization page? For example if I type in a name, how are the results rendered? TIA!

    Welcome to Android Central! I moved this from the Google User Research forum (which is intended for discussions on Google's UX studies where people can give input on new apps or devices they're working on) to the General Help forum.

    What do you mean by "Google data and personalization page"? Do you mean this part of your My Account website? https://myaccount.google.com/data-and-personalization

    Thank you and sorry about that. I am referring to my account and the search box on the google web & activity tab. If I type in “basketball” in the search box and Instagram and Facebook appear in the results, does that mean “basketball” was searched or used on Instagram and Facebook? Hope that helps. Thanks again!

    Is this on your phone or on your computer browser? When I go to my Google account website on my computer browser and go to the Data & Personalization section, the main search box at the top will search the Google Account forums, not your phone or specific activity.

    This is on my cell phone and using the google app. I am not searching in the browser section but rather on the specific google web and activity portion which should only populate apps/sites I use while logged into my google account. Hope that makes sense?

    It is where recent searches, pages visited, apps used, etc appear.

    So in other words, you're opening the Google app, tapping More, then Search History? Or Your Data In Search?

    Hi, welcome to AC!

    Yeah google search bar collects activities from apps and personal things and you would see some of that with search results or recommendations.Google activity search results-screenshot_20210722-202559_google-20play-20services.jpg
