Why weird url appearing in Google search

Posted by : Leo T Abraham on 22 July, 2013

In recent days you might have noticed that google is having a weird/strange url like https://www.google.co.in/?gws_rd=cr. Actually what is this gws_rd=cr ? Most of the people have thought that it is a bug or it is a virus. Actually it is not a big thing. gws stands for Google Web Server, rd for Redirect and cr for Country. So in short the weird part can be read as Google Web Server_Redirect=Country.
