You can also use the following VBScript

Option Explicit

Dim WshShell, strDesktopPath, objShortcutUrl

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strDesktopPath = WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Desktop")
Set objShortcutUrl = WshShell.CreateShortcut(strDesktopPath & "\Google.lnk")
objShortcutUrl.TargetPath = ""
objShortcutUrl.IconLocation = "c:\windows\system32\shell32.dll,13"

Set WshShell = Nothing

Not sure of your deployment method, but you can create the shortcut on your desktop. Then copy that shorcut to a share then run

@echo off
copy  "\\share\folder\url" "%allusersprofile%\desktop\url"

If you want it to run automatically:

Put in the startup "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore"  "\\share\folder\url" or "http://webaddress"

You can also use Group Policy to publish this as a Bookmark in Internet Explore. And /or use login scripts to copy the shortcut over from a share.
