Custom Search Test Class

I'm trying to create a custom search page. The page and controller work well, but I would appreciate any help with the test class (currently only have 52% coverage). 


public with sharing class WildcardSearchController{
// the soql without the order and limit
  private String soql_C {get;set;}  
// the collection of contributions to display
  public List<contact> contributions {get;set;} 
// This is the base soql for building the query
  public String soqlBase_C {
    get{ return soqlBase_C ; }
 // Create a query variable for debugging
  public String theQuery{
   get {return theQuery; }
// Create a variable for record returned count
  Public Integer numberContributions{
   get ;
// Create a STRING variable for record returned count
  Public string numberContributionsStr{
    get{ return numberContributionsStr; }
// a set of variables to persist the search parameters   
   Public string Name{ 
       get {return Name; }
       set ;
   Public string Email{ 
       get {return Email; }
   Public string Phone{ 
       get {return Phone; }
   Public string soqlLimitPage{ 
       get {return soqlLimitPage; }
                                                     // END OF VARIABLE Declarations
  // init the controller and display some sample data when the page loads CONTRUCTOR
  public WildcardSearchController() {
    soqlBase_C = 'Select Name, Email, Phone from Contact where Phone !=null ';
    soql_C = soqlBase_C;
  }                                                  // end CONTRUCTOR
  // runs the actual query
  public void runQuery() {     
    try {                                            // Get Contribution Records
      if(soqlLimitPage == null) {
        soqlLimitPage = 'limit 30';
        system.debug('TRY set null soqlLimitPage = ' + soqlLimitPage );
      theQuery = soql_C + ' ' + soqlLimitPage;
      system.debug(' theQuery = ' + theQuery);  
      contributions = Database.query(theQuery);
      system.debug('Contributions list returned = ' + contributions);  
      numberContributions = contributions.size();
      numberContributionsStr = String.valueOf(numberContributions );  
    }               // end try
    catch (Exception e) {
      ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.ERROR, string.valueof(e))); 
      ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.ERROR, 'Ooops!'));
      ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.ERROR, soqlLimitPage));
      ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.ERROR, theQuery));
    }              // end catch
  }                // end runQuery
  // runs the search with parameters passed via variables
  public PageReference runSearch() {
                                         // Display search variables
    system.debug('Name = ' + Name );
    system.debug('Email = ' + Email );
    system.debug('Phone = ' + Phone);
    system.debug('soqlLimitPage= ' + soqlLimitPage);
                                        // Build the rest of the soql_ by tacking on and operator parameter  
    soql_C = soqlBase_C;                                          
    if (!Name.equals(''))
      soql_C += ' and Name  LIKE \'%'+String.escapeSingleQuotes(Name )+'%\'';
    if (!Email.equals(''))
      soql_C += ' and Email LIKE \'%'+String.escapeSingleQuotes(Email )+'%\'';
    if (!Phone.equals(''))
      soql_C += ' and Unformatted__c LIKE \'%'+String.escapeSingleQuotes(Phone )+'%\'';
                                         // now, go run the query again and exit
    return null;
  }                // end runSearch
  // tests the variables, only function is testing
  Public void runPicklists() {
      List<String> junkList;
      String junkString;      
      junkString = soqlLimitPage;
  }              // end runPicklists   
}                // end class


private class Test_WildcardSearchController

    static testMethod void testController()
        WildcardSearchController CSBC=new WildcardSearchController();
       csbc.soqlBase_C= 'select Name, Email, Phone FROM Contact Where Name !=null';
        System.assertEquals(csbc.soqlBase_C, 'select Name, Email, Phone FROM Contact Where Name !=null');

    //instantiate the page
    static testMethod void WildcardSearch(){
        PageReference pg = Page.WildcardSearch;
        pg.getParameters().put('Contact.Name', 'bob');
        pg.getParameters().put('Email', 'gmail');
        pg.getParameters().put('Phone', '0299');

        //instantiate the controller
        WildcardSearchController controller=new WildcardSearchController();

Looking at it posted here, I realize how redundant and sometimes extraneous parts of the test class are. Ignoring that, I'm still unsure how to design a test for all variables in my controller. Sorry for the sloppiness in the test class, but thanks again for any help.

First, you should insert Contact record in test class.
