And what is that q= value?
It's a spin on the fake referer isn't it? Instead of putting in the bogus referer
it gets switched one step up the line to become the search string.
In any case, the first thing you gotta do is switch off a few parameters in gwt. They claim they don't want to index search-results pages. I hope they're right, because it drives me bonkers when I land on one by mistake. Hmm. Maybe Preview is good for something.
And if there's nothing in particular on the search page itself, why not yank the whole thing? Once users have arrived on your site they might find a search useful as a backup. ("I bet this site has what I want, but I can't find it.") But they're not going there for the search are they?
