Some people are freaking out about that. I did, for about twenty seconds, long enough to make one breathless Tweet... but, having caught my breath, it kinda makes sense to me. I mean, why have different account information for different parts of the same network?
But. There is a heck of a lot of web history out there for each and every one of us... and Google has it.
I followed these instructions to check out my stuff, and they had, at the very least, 11,000+ searches I've made going back to 2007. That in itself was a bit disconcerting.
There are a number of sources to figure out what precisely is happening and what to do about it, if anything. But I think, at the very least, you might want to consider scrubbing your Google web history, using the second link above as a guide. Seriously, can you remember what you were searching for in 2007?
