Google gfe_rd=cr&ei= URL Mystery Revealed

March 08, 2014 13 Comments A + a -

 

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..

Google Front-End  

provide Gmail, Calendar, Picasa Web Albums, Docs, Blogger, orkut, Reader and many other services.

 

How to Remove this from your browser?

Google Chrome:

          Settings -> Appearance->Show Home Button -> Change it to https://www.google.com or
          https://www.google.co.(country code)

Mozilla Firefox:

          Tools->Options-> General tab->Homepage-> Change it to www.google.com or
          www.google.co.(country code)

Internet Explorer:

          Tools->Internet Options-> Homepage-> Change it to www.google.com or
          www.google.co.(country code)



What is /ncr? 


                From other sites i got this information as no country redirect.and it'll take you back to the regular,   English-speaking Google.com without all the local results. But its not have any major effect.

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.

if you are using chrome means
go to settings->on startup-> click on Open a specific page or set of pages.
and click set pages there you can delete the unwanted startup pages
