A Python library for scraping the Google search engine.
googlesearch is a Python library for searching Google, easily. googlesearch uses requests and BeautifulSoup4 to scrape Google.
To install, run the following command:
python3 -m pip install googlesearch-python
To get results for a search term, simply use the search function in googlesearch. For example, to get results for "Google" in Google, just run the following program:
from googlesearch import search search("Google")
googlesearch supports a few additional options. By default, googlesearch returns 10 results. This can be changed. To get a 100 results on Google for example, run the following program.
from googlesearch import search search("Google", num_results=100)
In addition, you can change the language google searches in. For example, to get results in French run the following program:
from googlesearch import search search("Google", lang="fr")
To extract more information, such as the description or the result URL, use an advanced search:
from googlesearch import search search("Google", advanced=True) # Returns a list of SearchResult # Properties: # - title # - url # - description
If requesting more than 100 results, googlesearch will send multiple requests to go through the pages. To increase the time between these requests, use
from googlesearch import search search("Google", sleep_interval=5, num_results=200)
