Welcome to JavaRanch.

You could check the "REFERER" HTTP header of the incoming request. It contains the URL of the page where the link was located, which would be something like "http://www.google.com/search?q=foobar...". It's not a reliable method, though, because the user/browser may choose not send this header (E.g., Firefox has setting to disable the sending of REFERER headers.)

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
