Search engine domains and querystring tags

When running Analog on my log files, the analog.cfg file has a section that identifies Search Engine referrals. You have to specify two things: a url, possibly with wildcards, and a tag from the querystring that identifies where the search keywords came from. For example:

SEARCHENGINE http://*.google.com/* q

Has anybody got a fairly complete list of these. I'll offer what I generated last night from my log files, but I feel it is incomplete.

I also use Analog and somebody keeps a big list of these that you will find here [science.co.il]. You can also find other Analog helper applications
here [analog.cx].
