Google Looking at the past few week of Google news, you'll be forgiven for thinking Google doesn't do anything else beyond making Android. While there's sexier stuff going on within Google, the company is also still trying to improve its core user service: search. They've launched encrypted search today, and it will be rolled out across the world in the coming days.

Yeah, search will be encrypted, but going to the search results will still get you out of the encrypted connection.
Anyone sniffing on your connection will be able to derive your search terms just by looking at your outgoing links.
You can find top Google keywords for any given link on many sites, ie. seodigger.com

I just checked in 3 browsers (firefox, opera, chrome) and going from https to a different domain atleast doesn't set a referrer. So no1 can see the search-term.

That's atleast something.
