What does this search engine referral mean?

I have recently been seeing search engine referrals on my websites which say: com.google.android.googlequicksearchbox. What do people know about this type of search engine referral? Is this an indication that Google has judged my websites or webpages to be satisfactory for android devices? What does it really mean when you get this type of search engine referral?

These "search engine referral" emails are usually spam mails. Search engines crawl the internet for information, taking note of new websites and any updates to current websites. They don't send out any referrals.

Hope that helps. All the best!

"Search engine referrals " means refer from one website to another. Google analytics help you to view these referrals.
