@CrowKenobi, @MACVazquez: both have the closest answers yet. But still no.

@CrowKenobi: Your answer is actually as close to the original solution, that I rejected as inadmissible, as it is possible to be. The searchid was different because it is always unique, hence why the URL cannot be used as a solution to a riddle. The reason being the link will only work for you, and only for a short period of time. Log out and in again and see if it still works. It won't might not.

Edit: Turns out search results can be shared between users, however my other point remains: the id will expire and so cannot be relied upon as a solution.

@rrw: You are one step closer, but still the URL has a searchid, so no.

I've logged out (twice) and closed my browser and the link still works, but link expiring I can believe. However, since this isn't the answer, I won't go further with this.

@Kagayaki, @rrw: no and no but close. Read through each line of the riddle again keeping your proposed solution in mind and see if you can spot where it doesn't match. I think there are enough pieces for someone to actually solve it now; when someone does the obscurity of the answer, and my reason for pointing out why such URLs shouldn't be used as solutions, will become apparent.

I think you should make an example, Nightwish. To clear up some confusions about it.

Still no correct answers.

@Jean: sorry cold... the part your explanation misses is the key(word) time.
@rrw: you were closer before; painfully so.
@Aoie_Emesai: I will do well before the contest actually starts. This is to help people creating riddles know how to pitch the problem so it will actually be solvable and not just frustrate people because of obscurities. I hope to get all that frustration out now with this example
