Are these G. manual inspections?

Hi everybody!

I have an spanish e-commerce (online since March) and I've picked up in my logs some entrances that I don't know how to interpret them (if any interpretation could be made) as the keywords that are "reviewing" don't seem to be of high trafic, but the frecuency (about 15 times just in August).

Some of the kws "reviewing" seem to be trying out various sinomims + plurals for the same page.... and these is happening for several pages.

Here's a "cut" example of the url string of origin:

Are these really manual inspections or am I missinterpreting them?

Many thanks in advance.

These odd parameters have been showing up once in a while for nearly two years. They seem to be triggered when someone clicks on something in the order of a "related searches" or a "did you mean" suggestion.

Here's a way to explore: do the Google keyword search that the referer string suggests, and then hover over the various links on the page to see which ones contain the parameters.

Thanks Tester,

I've tried what you've sugessted and you're right.
They show on any page results after clicking on "related searches", so it seems a way of tracking user behiviour for finetuning querys.

Thanks a million. I felt a bit paranoid!
