Do you reckon this might be a tracking trick? They already appear to be
doing some tracking when searching for various terms. There are odd
re-directions going on in the results page, which you might notice if you
copy locations (links) from a SERP. I reckon that they don't /always/ have
these re-directions because with 100 million searches per day (or whatever
the true number is), they can get an enormous statistical sample from just
a fraction of the total query volume.
Just my opinion...
