Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
I have met with such a occasion, that a site utilize the search word scratched from client's refer record, they said:
your piror search words "web-analytic novel experience" matched 4,341 results in our site, view the results here.
Has someone met with such a phenomenon? Or do you have opposite idea against it.
Be cautious, because major search engines may see this as a 'tricky redirect' or cloaking, and several of them specifically forbid it.
Usually We show up with a apologizing message, with a search bar for user to attain other content, but after some analysis of the web log, we found people drawed out in most cases.
I hope to implement such a technology to such a occasion, Can you do me a favor in offering some examples that runs in the internet.
Thanks in advance.
John Battelle has an implementation of this where if you arrive on his site it'll show what Google deems relevant, but his site will also show, in a sidebar, other articles that are related.
You can see it in action by Googling John Battelle + [some search/internet industry related keywords]
I can't give you an example, but the basic technique would be to use PHP or PERL to examine the server variable HTTP_REFERER, and if the referrer is a search engine, extract the search parameters passed in the referrer (e.g. q=search+string+from+google), call your on-site search function with the words/phrases found in that search string, and then display the results so that the visitor can choose an appropriate page on your site.
