html buttons in struts

I have a single-page struts application that contains hyperlinks and two buttons.

I am dynamically creating the hyperlinks:

and the buttons are defined something like this:

My problem is that when I click on a link the URL in my browser is as I would expect, its parameterized, ex. www.mysite.com/page.do?submitAction=search&searchText=123. But when I click on a button, the page I see is non-parameterized, ex. www.mysite.com/page.do.

I would like to keep all urls paramterized so they can be indexed using search engines (I am also planning on using Apache web server for creating clean urls).

Andy advice?

Are you using method="post" on your forms?
