    Hello everyone,

    I'm currently working on a side project, a movie database (much like IMDB, but for a very specific niche). And all the movies posted there are stored in genres (eg: comedy, horror, drama).

    I'm using 301 Redirect (via PHP) to move the users who search for movie genres to the genre page. For example: someone searchs for "horror", my system automatically send them to the "horror movies" page.

    Example:

    HTML:
    Search page: moviewebsite.com/?s=horror 
    Post-redirect page: moviewebsite.com/genre/horror/ 
        
    Is that correct? What you think about it?

    Sounds good to me, why would this be a problem? :)
