I am having a home page where I can search on multiple tags. How should I construct the URL? Suppose I search for tag = test_1 and tag = test_2

Should I construct the url like

http://www.example.com/tag/test-1,test-2

or

http://www.example.com/tag/?tag=test-1,test-2

or

www.example.com/tag/test-1-test-2

or

any other option?

I know query params are generally ignored by search engines and I should not put comma in URL so according to it "www.example.com/tag/test-1-test-2" is best option but I am afraid that www.example.com/tag/test-1-test-2 and www.example.com/tag/test-2-test-1 will generate the same result.

My view would be that it doesn't matter for SEO because I'd be noindexing these pages anyway. Google doesn't want to index your search results in its search results, and it's a great way to get flagged for duplicate content.

Concentrate on SEO for the actual content pages and do whatever's best for the user experience for these kinds of category pages.
