Safari's history doesn't seem to include Google search result pages.

Steps I go through which re-create this issue every time:

  1. Search for anything from Safari's omnibar.
  2. Visit a result (by clicking it).
  3. Optional step: do anything else in Safari.
  4. Hit +Y to load up the history.
  5. Enjoy not seeing that intermediary Google results page in the list.

This is really frustrating.

How can I force Safari to show me Google search result pages in history?

I'm using Safari 11.0 (13604. and macOS High Sierra 10.13.

  • I guess you can add Google as a favorite bookmark, and turn on the ⌘1 shortcut to go to the first favorite bookmark from Safari preferences – Skeleton Bow Oct 25 '17 at 5:32

  • You can go to google using that shortcut, and it'll be saved to the history. Of course it's a mere workaround – Skeleton Bow Oct 25 '17 at 17:51
  • @SkeletonBow I think you might have misunderstood my problem. Even if I google for something using your method, the results page isn't pushed to history. – theonlygusti Oct 25 '17 at 20:18
  • Ah, okay. Sorry. – Skeleton Bow Oct 25 '17 at 20:38

Click History > Search Results SnapBack or ⌥⌘S via keyboard shortcut
