Welcome Google User, We Hope You Enjoy Your Stay

Have you noticed that certain sites add a message to their home page if you are visiting them from a referring site such as Google? I have seen a couple, this is what it looks like (click for larger version):

The message at the top in yellow says,
"Welcome visitor from For the very latest in music news, subscribe to our artist, track, video or post feeds, follow us on Twitter or Become a Facebook Fan."
What a great way of helping your audience along. If the visitor to your site has stumbled on the site from a Google search, the message gives an instant assessment of what they're getting into. Sure, the message is friendly, what follows the welcome is the instant context the visitor might need to stay and look further.
