Google search results page attempts to create a cookie for the first organic result. The cookie request comes form the actual site (not google).
To replicate - go to google homepage, search for a well known website. Now a cookie from that well known website will be written even though you have not clicked it yet.
Are google now grabbing meta data in real time for the first result?
