google is your friend

Short for Google Is Your Friend, GIYF is a term sometimes used in chat and forums to let the person asking the question know the answer could have been found by using the Google. Users who refer to this term often use the lmgtfy (let me Google that for you) service to open a search and show how something could have been searched.
