I am trying to get search result("" field on the left menu) from this site, using curl method

Site Url:

To get the search result actually the user need to login with the site, the login is working properly with the curl function.
The actual problem is that I tried passing the parameters through url like the same way as in the actual site but unfortunately
I am not getting the result, like in the actual site.

Following is the code for login and search, that I had used for this.And I also placed the login username password and also the search text(in the search
function url)in the code, could you please check it and let me know.

/* code to login to the site*/

$loginurl = "";
        $userName = "vwx7a";                //value of username
        $userPwd = "smwhe";                                //value of password field       
        $loginButton = "";                                //value of login button
        $userfieldname = "ctl00%24tbUserName";            //name of the field username
        $passfieldname = "ctl00%24tbPassword";            //name of the field password
        $buttonName = "ctl00%24btnLogin";                 //name of the submit button
        //$spiderId = $LoginDetails['idSpiders'];            //end values
        $link = "Startsiden";
