On some occasions you want to provide some particular Google Search. You could simply copy the link from your browser's address bar, which often gives a very long link containing a lot of redundant stuff, see, for example, this question (and also here and here).
But you can also create a shorter link, if you remove from the url the things, which are not needed. For example
http://www.google.com/search?q=test&tbm=isch is a link to Google Images search, the part
tbm=isch means that it is search in images.
For many of services, you can get a nicer and shorter url:
- Google Images:
- Google Books:
- Google Scholar:
But I did not find similar type of link for Google Videos. The link
http://video.google.com/video?q=test http://video.google.com/video?q=test does not work (although http://video.google.com is a valid link).
I did not find this for Google News, either. The link http://news.google.com/news?q=test returns different results than http://www.google.com/search?q=test&tbm=nws.
Are there such "short" URLs for Google Videos and Google News searches?
