Re: Updated Script to Download Google History -
"Exporting to CSV was the easiest option, because it didn't take much to combine all of the records into a flat file, using the Downloadify JavaScript library. If there is a JavaScript library for creating Excel files, it could be utilized in my script to output to Excel. I have converted data into Excel before, but only using PHP on the server-side. I have my doubts as to whether or not there is a library create Excel files within the browser. Unfortunately, unwieldy as it is, I think that creating a CSV in the browser window may be the best option as far as keeping it all within the browser. Thanks for sharing your thoughts." - GeekLad

"No, I'm doing nothing with it. You will need a Flash-enabled browser for it to work. If you're using iOS (iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch) it will not work. If you have Flash disabled on your browser, you'll need to enable it for it to work. A small Flash file is what makes it possible to convert the data to CSV within your browser, without having to transmit it to a third-party server." - GeekLad

Re: Stay N Alive: My Official (and Obligatory) "Traditional Blogging is Dead" Post -
"I agree that earning a living with a regularly engaged subscriber base is becoming exceedingly difficult, unless you have huge numbers following your blog.  However, as you stated, it can be done with how-to and tidbits of interesting information others are seeking.  Search is the gift that keeps on giving, but the gift of audiences following blogs is indeed dwindling. It also depends on the topic of your blog.  Technology is one of the most competitive blogging topics, making it a very tough nut to crack.  Social networking, although a bit more niche within technology, is still extremely competitive.  It is easier to compete in niche markets with fewer competitors, although markets with few competitors are becoming fewer." - GeekLad

Updated Script to Download Google History -
Re: Download Google Web History -
"I've blogged about the update here: One thing of note that you'll be interested to learn is that I may have uncovered a bug in the RSS feed.  If you're not careful, you can end up in an infinite loop with consecutive days with a lot of history. For example, you load the feed starting at July 1 and the last record is June 30.  You load the next page starting at June 30, but instead it loads starting at July 1, and you end up in an infinite loop.  This is something to watch out for if you develop your own script to pull the history the way I'm doing it." - GeekLad
Re: Download Google Web History -
"Ok, I've made the updates and it appears to be working quite well.  My entire history came out to 28.5MB as a CSV!  I also improved the cancellation process by adding a cancel button that would allow for a partial download and resumption.  It also handles time-outs and re-login requests gracefully. Thanks again for the tip on the date parameters.  I hadn't seen those posted anywhere.  I'll work up a blog post describing the updates to the script.  If you have a blog you'd like me to link to (and/or another handle you'd like me to reference), let me know so I can give you props in the new blog post." - GeekLad
Re: Download Google Web History -
"The solution just hit me like a ton of bricks.  It will require parsing the dates and a good bit of extra code, but here's what we do: First, load the first 1000 results as I'm doing now.  Then parse out the month, day, and year for the very last result.  Load the next 1000 records starting there, parse out the month, day, and year for that result and then continue with the iteration.  I'll work on it and then post an update.  Thanks again for your help!" - GeekLad

Re: Download Google Web History -
"You're right. It does not bring in everything, only the most recent ~4k records or so. So you load in every other day, with the assumption that you have fewer than 1000 searches every two days, a good assumption to make. I wish we could devise a way to do it without downloading so much superfluous data. This would especially be good for a browser-based solution, because a browser user doesn't have the convenience (nor patience) of just kicking off a script and let it run while they go off and do other things. If you do find a better way, please let me know and I'll update the code accordingly. Thanks very much for sharing your experience with this. Perhaps others will chime in and we'll find a working solution." - GeekLad
