Good point. I'm pretty sure Yaourt is the most popular of the AUR automators, but it'd probably be better to just point out the name of the package (and possibly its dependencies) and then to that article. Arch users aren't the type to add an entire repository to get a single program that automatically acts out a few commands. I myself only have Yaourt because it automates upgrading packages, which not everybody really cares about.

about it, there's a question:

Why are we recommending yaourt in the first place?

There seem to be other AUR helpers out there, and maybe users can do

Also it seems Arch users tend to appreciate not to get a thoughtless
procedure.  Maybe we can just point to the generic AUR helpers wiki
page https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR#Installing_packages.
