Since I had some colleague doing a favor for me, I have discovered a bug in distinction between "normal" search and instant search (not the preview).

He was searching for a way to reset the password of his media player ("dreambox password 800"), using Return to search (kind of "reflex" I tend to use quite often, too).

Then he searched for "sencha touch" without hitting Return-Key and clicked my blog (that's why I have his hit with the title of a post about mobile frameworks in my stats).

In fact: The piwik-Entry tells, that he entered the site by searching for "dreambox password 800", which is in fact wrong.

I file this as major because it means, that we can't trust at least the google keyword stats since Google Instant is getting used by default from Google where applicable.

this is the expected behavior because piwik.js only has access to the referrer.
