Help please...I am a beginner and have a need for a specific zap

I want the zap to go in every Thursday morning and extract one link from a website. This particular website updates every Thursday morning with one new link. That link is what I want to have searched in Google sheets and then into an auto email that goes to a specific list of recipients. 

I know how to set up the auto schedule, the google sheets zaps and client lists. It is the actual nabbing of the updated link weekly I would like automated. 


the link is the same every week with the exception of the date. The date updates every week to the next Thursday on the calendar. 


Example:     This is a made up link, but the point is to show that only the date at the end is what will be different each week. 


thank you.

For the Zap trigger step, if you use the Schedule by Zapier app, then it will return these data points, which can be used to dynamically construct the link.[month]_[day]_[year]




What does “dynamically construct the link mean? How do I do that? I had utilized the scheduling app and put Thursday at 7 a.m. but then what? How/Where do I say “go here and grab this” ? 

Sorry I am a little lame...

Constructing a dynamic link would look like this (combo of static and dynamic values in your case)
