Google Incognito Browser Viewing Organic SERP's

Hi I'm trying to use Google Incognito browser so I can see organic SERP's without my personalized information affecting them. Do I need to be signed out of my account while in Incognito Browser for this to work? Does it matter at all?

Hi,

When you open an incognito window, you open a clean window in which there are no browsing history nor cookies ( there is no sign-in cookies) so basically you are not signed in any accounts, you don't need to sign out.

If you are talking about signing out from your Google account in the regular browsing mode; NO, you also don't need to do that as the incognito and regular mode are not related.

Hi Maritha S,

This is a bit outside of what we focus on here, the AdWords Community but I can try to help a little.

I'm sure there are specific ways to ensure you're getting the "most organic" and non personalized results, but I have experienced things like location always having some level of impact. Between playing with Chrome's Search Tools to change locations and using a fresh, incognito windows, signed out, history cleared, should give you a pretty good idea. You can also opt-out of search customization (when not signed in).

This is a solid step by step that may help. Search and browse privately: https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/4540094?hl=en

Ultimately, the folks over at the Search or Webmaster forums are likely more suited to answer questions like this.
