Google templates[edit]

(includes Template:Google-Search, Template:GoogleImagesSearch, Template:Google Map, Template:Google Video Search, Template:Google Video Search1, Template:Google near, Template:Googleprint, and Template:Googleprintpage)

More variations of templates that have been deleted before (Wikipedia:Templates for deletion/Log/Deleted/May 2005#Template:Google and related). Search links are not encyclopedic references, and linking to Google Print is poor form when the book reference should be explicitely cited, with title, publish, ISBN, etc.. -- Netoholic @ 18:44, 1 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Strong Delete - These templates are tantamount to advertising for Google. They might qualify for speedy deletion. —Cuiviénen (Cuivië) 21:24, 1 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    • Buy custom adwords on Google, add custom link to Wikipedia article, ... profit? :) -- Netoholic @ 22:43, 1 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete, (and remove instances of) per above. -Xol 23:10, 1 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete, linkspam. Ouch! >Radiant< 23:55, 1 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Keep or rename, especially geographical links (e.g., "Google Map" and "Google near"). These work particularly well in some locations (e.g., in London at least). Rather than delete, it would be nice to rename to a more generic way of accessing this information (like the way "ISBN" works for example). --Jonathan Bowen 20:29, 2 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Strong Delete - People know what google is and how to use it. There is no need to be linking to google. Pointing to google images is especially silly considering the content can change daily, often times pointing to unintended content.--Pinworm 22:21, 2 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Strong Delete - As per above. Besides, pretty much everyone knows how to use a search engine and if someone wants more information from a search engine, they can go use one on their own. Cluttering up the external links section is also a big negative in my opinion. --PS2pcGAMER (talk) 13:11, 3 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete per nom. -- Dalbury(Talk) 21:58, 5 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete Seems to much like advertising and who doesnt already google these things? Google searches shouldnt be the things we link to they are too vauge detailed resourse websites fit better than a search engine. --Seth Turner 18:18, 6 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete - As discussed. Sulfur 22:08, 7 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
