What is Google doing?





scotty
Today I came across a random thing on Myspace linking to some site with layout on it. I noticed the link was this:

http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.little.ws/d3/

Which then redirected to their site. Then I changed the url at the end to my website and that worked also. What does this do and why? Does anybody know?

Maybe Google and Myspace are doing something and have yet to tell us. I've checked with mine and it does the same. hmmmmm

It will be the "I'm feeling Lucky" command for searching for URL's, it will just be coming up with the only URL that has that URL! (If you know what I man... :p)

It worked for my site too. I dont' know what there doing. Maybe its a redirect from the search engine that has this link in in www.yoursite.com.

Not made by Google, just using Google in the link somehow.

http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.josso.co.uk
For example...

Google is testing a new program where they allow any web site to deploy google search as if it was their own search script and not branded by google in anyway! The search can be limited by page, site or domain...

I read the full news article on this not long ago and searched for link so everyone could read it for reference but could not find it. So this information is just from memory, sorry.

For people that have sensed a changed in google over the years, you're right! Google is now the "microsoft" of search engines... They are beholding to their shareholders and will do just about anything in search of a dollar!

Despite some evil things they may have done though, they are still at the top and remain a very useful and friendly site! (Just hope hope you don't get on their bad side)

notice the "url?g=..." after the google.com. I think that explains it. It just goes to the pointed url, and that url redirects to the myspace graphics thing.

i have been looking at it and i am pretty sure that it is just a im feeling lucky link

I havn't heard anything about it yet, it looked like a cool site though. Myspace is pretty dull and boring. But, maybe its just all the emos there that get on my nerves Laughing

In our life time Google will own teh interwebz
The Master DCK
if you mean internet yes i agree but no one man can really own the internet it is completly impossible google may own everything that controls the internet but thats it

@scotty - as far as I can see http://www.little.ws/d3/index.php is just a redirect to myspace.. no google business in it with myspace Wink just as much as http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.SomeSite.com is a redirect to "somesite.com"
