WHAT THIS IS: Sometimes you run across a name or a topic about which you know nothing. The Web Search Query Builder 5 Million takes your topic, runs a number of Wikipedia searches, then pulls out topics and keywords into Google search queries. Sometimes the Wikipedia Data tab is enough to give you the basics on a topic or person. When you need a deeper dive, use the search engine links. An explanation for each tab is below.

TAB ONE: This tab. To start, put your topic or name into the shaded box. A moment after you hit enter, you'll get counts for the queries on your topic. This works best with specific topics and names; you can run a query like cow but your results will be all over the place.

TAB TWO: The Wikipedia data resulting from your topic queries.

TAB THREE: A set of Google search links for exploring your topic further, from light (one query at a time from the Wikipedia list) to medium searches (three queries) to deep dives (five queries) Click on the cell, and you'll get a popup link and an invite to open the link in a new tab. This is how Google Sheets handles hyperlinks; sorry, I can't make it more elegant.

TAB FOUR: Google search links limited to .edu domains (for the first set of queries) and .gov domains (for the second set of queries). Medium searches are limited and "deep dive" queries are removed completely, as the searches are already restricted by TLD (Top-Level Domain).

TAB FIVE: Full Google queries unrestricted by top-level domain, but with additional keywords added designed to find more educational and teaching-oriented resources as the result of a query.
