Hmm. Looks like search history could soon be a significant part of the ranking algorithm. I wonder will we see an explosion of Search History spam of the type that this blog uncovered recently?
I wonder is there any way Google can fix the problem?

Once I signed up, my google search urls began carrying a new querystring parameter: biw. Looks like it's tracking browser window width, like &biw=1280. Now that they own Urchin, not to mention Planet Earth, they'll likely become the de facto source for global browser & resolution stats.
