More URL Click Tracking?

 9:39 pm on Jun 3, 2010 (gmt 0)

Has anyone else noticed a vast increase in the amount of URL tracking (ie, natural search clicks that are routed through http://www.google.com/url ?

Personally, I've rarely or never gotten this when I search. But see it all over recently.
Perhaps this is an indication that they are more actively trying to rebuild reputations and/or bounce rates etc?

I've been checking on every search I did in the past 30 minutes - and even rolled out a few other browsers to reality check. I'm not seeing any click-tracking on the organic titles. Maybe you've got a "special cookie"?

hmm....maybe that explains why my site is tanking, Tedster. HAHA

I must have a special cookie. I'm getting URL tracking on every result for every search.

I'm not getting URL tracking codes today, however I did notice it yesterday. Maybe it's just on a few data centers?
