The ‘?’ in the URL defines a parameter to which, in my case, Google.com now get redirected to said instructions after the ‘?’ mark in the URL
gws = google web server
rd = redirect
cr = country

Re: Googles redirect to secure server /?gws_rd=ssl

Lately a lot of peeps keep seeing, ( /?gws_rd=ssl) after https://www.google.co.uk/ which looks like https://google.co.uk/ ?gws_rd=ssl & thought the y malware or some other malicious anomalies on their computers
Just tried again & now I am seeing https://www.google.co.uk/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=XBebU5yzCYjY8gfz24GADg
Hows that for Confucius Tongue lol

Re: Googles redirect to secure server /?gws_rd=ssl

Well, I`m not seeing anything... cos I don`t look at the url... I look at the page that comes up... if it ain`t the right one, I search again...  Roll eyes
And I still haven`t a clue what you are on about.....  Huh
