    I have an alphabetical list of mystery authors. I would like it to look like this:

    http://www.bestsellersworld.com/cgi-...n&format=list9

    I know I can just link to this url from James Patterson's name.

    I also know I can do something like this with shtml but I would like all my other links to be on this page.

    http://www.bestsellersworld.com/patterson.shtml

    How do I set up pages for each author to look like my first example?

    Also, what example do you think would be best for the search engines?

    Search engines don't like ?'s in urls.

    To shorten the URL, you can use pre-defined searches and/or mod_rewrite. See: http://www.c3scripts.com/amazon/docs8.html#search.*

    So you could define the variable search.patterson using:

    search.patterson "type=search&mode=books&keyword=james+patterson&format=list9"

    and then use it as:

    /cgi-bin/ae.pl?search=patterson

    or if you have Virtual Directory (mod_rewrite) set up, then you could use:

    /amazon/search_patterson
