Google gfe_rd=cr&ei= URL Mystery Revealed

 

What is  gfe_rd=cr&ei= ?

            It just a cookie link redirected to your browser based on the country.

      For past few months when we type google.com it redirects us to our country site mentioning as
google.co.uk
google.co.in
google.co.kr
google.co.nz
google.co.au
with that an extra query like structure will be there.
like one of these https://www.google.co.uk/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=S3FfUss8i5DfG9y1gtAL

Here in ?gfe_rd=cr&ei=
gfe means Google Front-End,
rd means Redirect,
cr means Country.
(till this you can find in all websites)
 And the final ei means Engine Id and also some random combination of numbers and letters is a cookie sent to our desktop..

  2. Hello

    I've got an issue... maybe... my homepage is set to www.google.co.uk but my browser opens two windows when I click it, first one is www.google.co.uk and the second is https://www.google.co.uk/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=aDqLU-fmE5DSjwePkIDIAw

    I've no idea how to stop this, I'm sure it never used to and can't think why it started.
