Automatic addition of modifier to query when submitted

P: n/a
I have a Google search box on my blog that can be used to query either
the Web or just my blog.

Queries of just my blog automatically have appended to them as they're
submitted to Google "inurl:post".

That appending is visible to the searcher in the Google search box on
my blog. I'd like to hide that appending, just to prevent confusion in
the mind of the searcher. (Unless the URL of a page in the search
results has the word "post" in it, the hit won't be helpful to the
searcher anyway.)

Is there a way in which I can hide the fact of the appending?

Thanks for reading this.

Let a Google search post/get to your website, check & sanatise the query
string with some server side code, and do a header redirect (307 would be
most suited I think).
