When I type in google.com, it redirects me to this URL: https://www.google.co.in/?gws_rd=cr&ei=LMQxUoCCO8qfiQfSl4HgAw

What does &ei=LMQxUoCCO8qfiQfSl4HgAw mean?


Search parameters and what they indicate: gws =Google web server



Source:Yahoo Answers from India

ei parameter indicates:

Obviously something that needs to be encoded. There’s some suggestion that this shows if the visitor has navigated the Google search pages by clicking “next”. But if “cd” really does mean I was ranked third, then the visitor wouldn’t have needed to click on the next link? Unless I was the third result on the second, third, etc. page?

Hope this helps!
