What is the best method for a simplified tag cloud? I don't want multiple sizes of text or hovering effects or any of that. I just want a set of links that go to my results page for the Google search engine on my site.

Do I just create separate links and copy the URL of the results page for each term?:

<a href="results?stringofnonsense1">keyword1</a>
<a href="results?stringofnonsense2">keyword2</a>

It looks like this would get unnecessarily long. Is there a way to give each keyword a class and use some kind of code to automatically go to that keywords results page?

Anyone? Are all tag clouds that long and cluttered?

Thanks but I always search myself before posting. I'm looking for actual users experiences and opinions.
