I would agree with Charles about Google being just one search engine 
among many.

something like this:

What do the rest of the ASL users think? If I were forced to make up a 
sign on the spot right now, I probably would sign "G" + SEARCH, but 
that is without any extra discussion with other ASL users. Maybe there 
are other more creative ways to sign it. ;)
