Google Blog Search Redirects Going Away

Blogger Buzz posts that the redirects I didn’t like in Google Blog Search are going away. In fact, they were never supposed to be there. The redirects were there to keep Blog Search a secret during testing.

Sadly, this wasn’t part of an overly clever click-harvesting scheme. We had the redirects in place during testing to prevent referrer-leaking and simply didn’t remove them prior to launch. But they should be gone in the next 24 hours … which will have the advantage of improving click-through time.
