Google provides many tools beyond the search service that made them a household name. One of those tools, Google Bookmarks, allows you to save your favorite websites for easy access from any Web-enabled device with a browser. Evernote provides a tool that enables easy saving and searching of information. Evernote is available both on and offline and makes importing data very easy -- including information stored in Google Bookmarks.
Things You'll Need
- Web browser
Log in to Google Bookmarks.
Select the bookmarks to export by checking the box beside the bookmark name, or click on All to select all bookmarks.
Click the Export Bookmarks link. The exported bookmarks will save as an HTML file to the download folder configured in the Web browser, or a prompt for the download location will be displayed if none is configured. The default name for the exported bookmark file is GoogleBookmarks.html.
Start the Evernote desktop application, or log in to the Evernote website if using the online version.
Create a new note in Evernote, or locate an existing note to add the Google bookmarks.
Select the saved bookmark HTML file and drag it into the new or opened note in Evernote. Evernote will save and display the imported bookmarks as HTML links. Clicking on any of the saved links will open the bookmarked website in the default Web browser.
Tips & Warnings
- The process sometimes creates duplicate bookmarks. Prune these from your Google Bookmarks home page.
