How about being even more exacting and distinguish bewteen 'User',
'Startup', and 'Search'. As a server admin, I might be interested to
know that a bunch of people like one of my pages so much that s/he
has configured it as their home page (thinking of the 'Internet Starting
Points' type services here). 'Search' may not be necessary because
it can be inferred from the '?' in the URL of the Referer.
