    Default How do I get the URL of search results?

    Hi,

    I would like to send the URL of search results to some people. If I search by brand, the URL is always www.xxxxxx.com/search.html

    Example, search Fender on Bass Centre, and this is the result: http://www.basscentre.com/search.html

    How do I get the URL so that if I copy and send it to someone, it will come up with products by one brand only? Example again, search by Fender (brand) on Bass Centre, I want to send the link that will open up with only Fender products.

    Thanking thee.

    Bah - I asked Rich this question and he said it wasn't possible...I got around it another way (which in some ways is better).

    I created a Fender sub category and added the relevant products to it but made the sub cat not live (ie red cross not green tick) and that way it's got the products grouped but isn't visible via the navigation.

    The major benefit of doing it this way is that the sub cat can have an se optimised url which as long as it's added to your site map, will get crawled and you'll have (hopefully) an improved se result!

    So using the Fender example...the page is http://www.basscentre.com/fender-bass-guitars.html - you can also use this url for deep linking Adwords.

    Hope this provides a useful alternative!

    Thanks Giles

    At what level did you create that sub category? That particular one under Bass Guitars, or as a category straight from home? So it doesn't show up as http://www.basscentre.com/bass-guita...s-guitars.html?

    Created it as a sub category of 'bass guitars' - you would have thought that the url would be /bass-guitars/fender-bass-guitars... but weirdly it doesn't do that.
