The query is part of the URL.
why is a site search pointing to an empty page?
these statements are irrelevant to the discussion.
before your post nobody had mentioned site search or query strings in this thread.
So you could have a site where as far as the server is concerned, no request ever meets anything but a perfect 200.
you are describing a CMS that was written by someone who didn't read the HTTP specification.
that's not the problem being discussed here.
