A Google Search on this topic just returns results explaining how to hack Google Analytics site search for POST-based search engine measurement. So, I thought I would turn to you fine men and women for help.
I know the main differences between GET and POST involve security and caching (POST requests are secure and are not cached). So, for some applications it makes perfect sense to use POST rather than GET.
However, I'm working with an internal site search engine that receives and returns SERP requests POST-style. Why would it be designed to do that? What are the benefits? I can't imagine it's important to keep search queries secure. Maybe it has something to do with not caching those queries?
All I see is a complication for Web Analytics, so I'm really looking for some enlightenment.
Thanks so much in advance to anyone who can help me understand this.
