Verbatim searches

To link to a Google "verbatim" search (which keeps Google from guessing alternate spellings), add the named argument verbatim with any value other than whitespace.

{{subst:google}} Google Pages with the phrase "Google", because the name of this page that you are reading is "Template:Google"
{{subst:google|Godzilla}} Godzilla Pages with the term "Godzilla".
{{subst:google|Godzilla Rodan}} Godzilla Rodan Pages which contain "Godzilla" and "Rodan".
{{subst:google|Godzilla Rodan|verbatim=1}} Godzilla Rodan Pages which contain "Godzilla" and "Rodan", and excluding pages that Google might otherwise think you were interested in because they contain "Roman" instead of "Rodan".
{{subst:google|"Godzilla Movie"}} "Godzilla Movie" Pages with the phrase "Godzilla Movie".
{{google|1 pound in kilograms {{=}}}} 1 pound in kilograms = Use Template:= to add an = sign to trigger Google Calculator when necessary; that template cannot be substituted.
{{google|1 pound in kilograms}} 1 pound in kilograms Google may display Calculator results for some expressions even if they lack a trailing equals sign.

Site-specific search

You can use the site: parameter to search on a specific Web site. You may prefer {{Google custom}} or {{Google Wikipedia}} because they yield a cleaner search form, without the site: parameter cluttering the input field.
