    Sorry i don't think you understand my question. I know how to make the keyword display in the URL. It's the content on the page that i am asking about. The content i want displaying on the page should look like i have already done a search on my site, hence i said display a search results page.

    Use your keyword as a permalink.

    I think a lot of people are getting confused because i haven't worded my question clearly enough. I am currently running an adult site. I just did a search for this keyword in google 'asa akira co' The third site in the search results was xvideos. The page that it displays is all the videos with the actor asa akira in it and it shows this as a search results page. I want to know how i can set up search results pages on wordpress for different keywords?

    Thanks

    Your content should be lengthy and it must target about your keyword. Also, the competitive check will be an important thing for this task.

    Before that if you need for the good SERP results in Google then you must Build an Authority links for your blog.

    I don't know how my answer is unclear. Type that URL into your browser, replacing it with your domain and keyword. The /?s= part of the URL tells WordPress to display search results.

    Take that URL, add it to your sitemap or somewhere like that and as long as there isn't a noindex tag on your template, Google will index the search results page.

    To further clarify, using your example: http://yoursite.com.com/?s=asa akira co will display all search results on your website for "asa akira co".

    @Conor has provided the answer, to get it indexed add it to the sitemap then build some links to it etc

    Alternatively use Tags and or Categories

    Hi Conor,

    For some reason i am still not understanding what you mean. I think i've got sh** for brains lol. This is the keyword that i am targeting 'asa akira co' At the moment there is no search results page on my site for the keyword 'asa akira co' However there is a search results page for the keyword 'asa akira' What i want to do is have the asa akira search results page display for the keyword 'asa akira co'

    This is what i don't know how to do?

    Thanks
