Rule n° 164 - Each search results page can be reached via a web address.

You have searched a website. You have tested 10 queries before finding exactly the one that gives you the ideal list of products. That's wonderful. But when you want to send this list of results to someone, it's impossible because the link is generic and doesn't display the results. It's because the site you're on doesn't follow this rule. It is a missed opportunity for all.
