Search statistics

According to this article, it appears that Google is rolling out some new Web2.0 features that will impact you if you use StatCounter, AWStats or other services to track "keywords searches" to your websites.

Specifically, these traffic analysis tools require that the referrer string in the URL contain the keywords that were used for the search. Google is testing AJAX powered search that doesn't include the proper URL. This is bad news if you are not using Google Analytics to track traffic.
