This bundle command is used for inserting links into the document. To
just use the selected text as a search you could do one of two things:

1. Assign a keyboard command (via system preferences) to the "Search
With Google" item in the "Services" menu. This has the advantage of
working in every app.
2. Create a command out of this: open
http://www.google.com/search?q="$TM_SELECTED_TEXT" / set the input to
selected text or word, and discard the output.

Also, if you're looking up rails docs try selecting the word and
hitting control-shift-H.
