Seach engines store search history

I think we know that the search engine providers store a history of your searches. We hear about law enforcement checking someone's search history for the poison and bomb-making searches they have done, etc. etc. But some search engines now do predictive search as you type out the letters. Auto suggestion or instant match or whatever they call it. So as you type .... b-o-m-b-, the suggestions and sometimes results appear (bombay bicycle club, bomber jacket, bomb timers, etc.). You can certainly get the search results you may be looking for without ever press enter. And with some, the search result change as you scroll up and down a list that it has suggested for you based on the first few letters typed. So when/what is the record of your searches made? It is every letter you type? or only when 'enter' is pressed? or the position of the cursor as you scroll through a list? Or only whatever's in the search box when a link is clicked (so you see read the page summaries without that being tracked, but if you click a link, then that's a search 'hit')? I don't know. Could you help me understand please?

Learn me SEO

I am taking on a new role which will require me to be conversant in SEO. Our SEO product manager likes to obfuscate things so no one can pin him down. It is my job to pin him down and call bullshit. I have no idea what schema.org is or what this canonical stuff is all about. Can anyone recommend a great book / site where I can get up to speed on all things SEO? I don't have a lot of time to spend so brevity is key.

Where are these queries without a referer header coming from?

I modified my website's search engine to log queries--including the search string, timestamp, referer, and visitor IP--in order to discover what visitors are searching for from which pages. Several of the queries have a blank referer and come from the IP Those query strings are not spam-like. Typically they have some relation to my site's topic. The IP appears to belong to the Googlebot, buy why would it behave that way? The queries seem like things a human would enter. Is there some method of accessing a site's search engine that strips the referer header and leaves a bogus IP? As I said, nothing about this appears malicious. I am just wondering what is happening.
