It is possible to create an external searches of a topic using key words using a template.

For example, this is something that would work for Google:

<span style="border: 1px solid #CCD5DB;">[[Image:GoogleIcon.PNG]] [http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&safe=off&q={{{1|Wiki}}}&btnG=Search&meta= {{{1|Google}}}]</span>
==Usage==
Allows to establish a link to a search query at the Google search engine:
<div style="display:table; width:auto;"><pre>
{{Google|Term1+Term2+Term3}}
</pre></div>
[[Category:Template|Google]]
</noinclude>

The usage is very simple and easy to use. {{Google|firstTerm+Second+etc}}

It is also possible to do phrases by using %22Term1+Term2+etc%22

Other applications of the template include searching Forums, for bug reports of the same type for software development wiki's where the wiki and forum work together.

Note: Wikipedia has an interwiki prefix with a similar affect, so you can link to google results with [[Google:firstTerm+Second+etc]], although templates are still useful for linking other search engines.
