Tip of the day...
How to provide a link to a specific Google Search

On talk pages, it may be useful to provide a google search link directly in a discussion of a topic's notability or in debates about which name for a subject is the most common. The Wikimedia software that powers Wikipedia lets you make links to Google by including google: as the prefix for the link, like this:

[[google:Tipster]].

Which looks like this:

google:Tipster

Note: It is important not to use spaces in the search. To add more parameters to the search, separate them by a plus sign, +. For a phrase search, use a hyphen (minus sign), -, between each word. E.g. to search for "Tip of the day", use Tip-of-the-day.

To provide a link to a Wikipedia-specific search, include in the google-link +site:en.wikipedia.org (no spaces before or after), like this:

[[google:Tip-of-the-day+site:en.wikipedia.org]].

Which looks like this:

google:Tip-of-the-day+site:en.wikipedia.org

To clean up the link so that only the part you want to show is presented, use the pipe, like this:

[[google:Tipster+site:en.wikipedia.org|"Tip of the day"]]

Which makes it look like this:

"Tip of the day"
