Cool Google Blog Trick

Try this Google search. On the results page, click the link to "tins : : Rick Klau's weblog."

See that page you go to? It knows you came from Google! How does it do that?

And look, it works with Yahoo search, too.

This is awesome. Why? How often do you do a search, find a blog that posted something that sounds like what you're looking for, then follow the link only to find that the post has rolled off the page and into the archives somewhere? With this neat trick, that problem disappears.

If you know how to work this magic, please let me know...

BTW: In addition to being a cool tech geek with a J.D., Rick was involved with the Dean campaign and has lots of great posts about his experience.

Thanks for the kind words! The info about how I implemented this is here:

I love the hack, and agree that it adds a tremendous amount of usability to the site. (Too bad I can't take credit for the idea, too!)

Thanks, Rick! I'll be checking it out in the next few days. It's always fun to see a new way someone is playing w/MT, but it's even more fun when they show you how to play, too!
