Does anyone know what the search referer's RLS parameter means, please? I previously thought it was something to do with google ads but I know this particular target site doesn't have them.

Typical example:
rls=GGGL%2CGGGL%3A2006-29%2CGGGL%3Aen

From what I can see, I think it usually means something like "results language." I'm not sure what "GGGL" is doing in there, maybe it means the language was set in the Google Toolbar instead of by the browser itself.

Hmm. It was the GGGL I was particularly wondering about, having seen it so often.
