How to trigger search from navigation menu or within html pages

I’d like to create urls that, when clicked, perform a specific search. Is this possible?
I ask because I have nearly 3000 different subject categories and 100,000 products. The subject categories where imported as attributes when the products were imported, so every subject is already available for searching. If I could create urls that could perform a search on specific terms I could nest my subjects (as urls) in static pages. I could then create a limited number of general categories for navigation (say 200 categories) that lead users to the static lists of specific search terms.
