This documentation is transcluded from Template:Google search/doc.

This template creates a link to a Google search query for use in talk page discussions.

Usage

{{Google search |1= |2= |type= }}

Or use the shorthand {{Goog}}

This template generally should not be used outside of talk pages, as it might be confusing to a casual visitor.

There exists an interwiki prefix, google:, that can also be used for linking to Google. However, all spaces in your search query will be converted into underscores when you use this prefix, which makes it unhelpful in most circumstances.
