You can leave out the apple script and make a cron job with the command "open http://[search url]"

Here's a good eBay javascrip bookmark that you click, then enter your search term in the pop-up, and voila!

javascript:q=prompt('Word:%20','');location.href='http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?cgiurl=http%3A%2F%2Fcgi.ebay.com%2Fws%2F&krd=1&from=R8&MfcISAPICommand=GetResult&ht=1&SortProperty=MetaEndSort&query='+q';

I tried this but ended up borking up my crontab's formatting. I have a cron job launch the applescript and its all good ;-)
