I've got my URL however some of the strings would contain &. Obviously I can't use them as best practice so I've replaced them with +.
However if I encoded my & instead it would become %26.
How would a search engine see that? Would it see %26 as a & so still bring back the URL or would it just see it as a %26?
Would www.example.com/sweet?m&m show as that, or would they see it as www.example.com/sweet?m%26m
