clicking a search link redirects to other google url before going to the link = slow and messes with back button1 Recommended Answer
Below is an example of such an temporary step between google search results and actual ebay. Pressing the back button will go to that temporary link and revert back to ebay instead of going to the search results.
Bing does not do this which makes browsing and searching better
Things should get back to normal when Google stops tracking you. If it bothers you or you don't want Google tracking you you could install a browser-extension or user-script to strip the tracking URLs.
The problem with the back button not taking you back to the search results page is not normal and should not be caused by this.
On a side not I would consider using a faster and better browser like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox instead of Internet Explorer.
Also the temporary link is from Google as you can see. No phishing
Incognito makes no difference.
I have it on, at least, 4 different machines. None are the same for add-ons. The only loaded and enabled add-on I have now is Shockwave flash.
Couldn't it be google analytic stuff tracking the click for statistics?
Maybe is it just google.BE
So it is really not something on my device.
Here are 2 urls that were inserted between the Google search results page and the clicked on page from the same search result.
1 - this inserted Google url, allows IE to take me back to the Google search results.
This one does not and takes me back to a blank page... requiring 2 back clicks to get to Google results
Both results were obtained by initiating Google.ca by using my Favorite link for Google and both have the exact same search criteria and results and the urls were copied after clicking on the identical web site.
