    Same Url but different page

    Hi. I encountered a website with a url that ends with directory_standalone.php. There's a search bar on it and whatever keyword is entered it will produce the corresponding result but the url doesn't change. So when 2 different search results are given, they will always have the same url. And if there are multiple pages for each result and if one of the pages is clicked(say page 2), the ending url changes to directory_standalone.php?page=2 or directory_standalone.php?page=x where x=page number. This is the same for whatever search is made. Furthermore, if the url of the search result is copied and pasted on a new tab, it will show only the page with the search bar without the results. In other words, the results cannot be linked.

    I'm unfamiliar with php or what's going on the server side, but if someone could explain this I would really appreciate.
    Thanks!

    Some sites look at the incoming IP address, lookup where it's coming from and then take various actions they think relevant to you - usually, redirecting you to a more-local site.

    Of course, lots of sites react if they think they've "seen you before." For example, there may be cookies that tell them something about you. Or, they may be reacting to your browser.

    Sometimes, organizations look at the source IP address and if it's coming from a business they may respond differently than if it's from a non-business "home" IP.
    And, sometimes companies intercept IP traffic and edit it in various ways. This is not normally done to web pages, but if your employer isn't happy with your watching porn at work -smile-, they may do something about it!

    If you want to advertise on WDF, you can do so in another section of this forum and you can include a link too.
    Post your company and ads in this section .... "Web Marketing Discussion and Help" If we let everyone do that, we would have 200 posts on every thread, and the original post would never be answered. WDF is a "no-follow" site, so links don't do anything for your SEO. If you want to get customers, advertise using Google AdSense.
