Google search is very powerful. The searches can be configured to return results of very specific characteristics.

The characteristics of the desired search results may be controlled using search parameters that can include switches with a special syntax. Unfortunately, that syntax is too hard to understand for many users.

This class provides a solution to search the Internet for special types of content using Google.

It formats the search parameters and executes the searches to retrieve the URLs of those types of content, without having to learn the Google search parameters syntax.
