When a general purpose search engine is used to search dynamic databases, outlinks in the search results page simply point to the relevant databases, without specifying the filtering parameters entered as part of the search query. When the user clicks on a search result and is redirected to the target webpage, the user is forced to re-enter filtering parameters that were already provided as part of the search query. This disclosure describes dynamic search result outlinks where user-provided search parameters are used, with user permission, to automatically fill information in the web page pointed to by the outlink. This ensures a better match between information entered by the user during search and information filled into the target web page, enabling the target web page to directly provide matching results, thus enabling greater convenience and fewer errors. Also described are techniques that enable the generation of dynamic descriptions and snippets based on user-specific query parameters for display in the search results.
