  • Hi Timothy,

    I have been following up on this for quite sometime now so thank you for the fresh update. Jonathon, I think that makes two of us :-)

    Just some quick comments/questions:

    I can see that some of the parameters have changed recently. Here's a full string: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=8&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CHEQFjAH&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.zaama.co.uk%2F&ei=o8UhU4jHEpOthQfJmoG4Cw&usg=AFQjCNH1h7na4cv1U2pKT8QQ1J1F4dZTMw&sig2=vCfe-vrXKPV07XiLtcWsMw&bvm=bv.62922401,d.bGE

    Does anyone know what uact=8 stands for. The value seems to be always the same (8), at least for around 50 different queries I ran.

    Also, ranking filters using the cd=[number] dont work for users coming from a Chrome browser. I tried many workaround but failed miserably.

    Any help on this will be deeply appreciated.

    Thanks!
