    Normally no .. the urls are linked directly without passing through google.

    However, sometimes (especially during a dance) you see the results linked like:
    http://www.google.com/url?sa=U&start=12&q=http://www.domain.com/&e=1102
    ... which 302 redirects you to the page.

    Not sure what they are actually for .. but interesting to note :>

    As Lowell says, they occasionally monitor click through rates, using a redirect counter.

    As Darrin says, Yahoo does it all the time, Google just do it now and again and often only for US users.
