What the H is that really all about?!
I read it as having to place a referer meta tag on each page that G scrapes - surely that's what "meta tag" means - a tag in the page header? Is that it? What's wrong with just providing the proper querystring, as they used to?
Does this mean we have to modify our pages just for G - again?!
Presumably the extra loading caused by SSL is causing their servers to slow down? If so, how do they suddenly get away with no redirect, if they redirected before? Do they plant cookies on a browser?
I further read it that the referer used does not include any reference to it being a basic G search querystring. Or are they subverting their terms to confuse me?
Thank the gods I don't really need any of their referer info. My sites don't actually need it and none of my site owners really looks at the search terms anyway.
