I have a search string which I would like to have default to google. 
For example.  When the web reader see the icon "World Politics", they would
depress the icon and a "safe" google search would be automatically effected
and they would see the results as a normal google page.  What exactly
would I write this into my page ( I use HTML notepad.  Thank you.

Hi there,

The HTML to use is as follows:

<a href="://"><img
src="locationoftheimage.ext" alt="World Politics"></a>

Breakdown of the HTML used
<a href=""></a> is the normal HTML code for a link


safe=active - tells Google to filter the results using safe search
q=%22World+Politics%22 - is the search phrase
%22 - stands for for a double quote

<img src="locationoftheimage.ext"> is the normal HTML code for an
image with a filename of locationoftheimage.ext. Because it is nested
with the link code, clicking on the image will take you to the Google

alt="World Politics" - these days it is expected to provide a text
description of an image. It will be seen when a visitor moves their
mouse over the image, or in place of the image for anyone using a
text-only browser.

Different queries
To turn off "safe search", just remove safe=active& from the URL

To search for two keywords, not as a phrase, change

A four word query looks like:

If any of the above is unclear, or if you need further assistance on
