Not really. Obviously anything that could be found on their site by Google's robot could easily be found by a human at Google scanning the site.
Lots of people type URL's into the search box so Overture is risking loss of customers with this tactic. I'm sure they have a valid reason for doing it, I just can't think of what that might be.
