New Google URL Paramater Information...

Google appears to have added more information to the referrer string that is passed to your web pages, enabling you to see ranking information for searches that come through to your site.

For instance:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&cd=1&q=search phrase&spell=1

It looks like the 'cd' parameter contains the position where your site ranked, in this example for the term 'search phrase'.

There is also a resnum parameter so not entirely sure yet, interesting though...

OK so that url broke over the space... but anyway, look out for CD and RESNUM parameters in your referrer strings and look for patterns in them; if you notice anything interesting or work out exactly what they mean, post them here!

Should I start seeing new information in my stats package then? Currently I can't see anything different to before

I don't really understand this - does it affect normal sites?

Hi Tim,

Could you elaborate further please? What do are you trying to explain? I'm a bit confused.

How would google be able to know what your site is to tell you what ranking your site is at?

This is useful information, the trouble is Google cannot guarantee it will be a permanent fixture
