The question of how to scrape Google search results has been asked time and again. The reason being is that Google is by far the most popular search engine in the world. Every search request they receive is logged and turned into information that is made available to Google’s user interface and advertising programs. The question is: what can you do with this information?
Google Search Results Page (RDF) information is public information that users voluntarily give when searching for information on Google. Google makes money from the cost per click by advertisers, through sponsored listings and through other business uses. All of the information that Google receives from users is stored in a relational database called the RDF site. The information is loosely-coupled; e.g. it might be associated with a person’s name or it might not.
A Google Search result, for instance, might have a name, an age, gender and query type. The information that Google receives is stored as a linked RDF graph. The API Endpoint, which is a special web address, is using to communicate queries and get information back from Google. This is the URL that you will use to browse Google results and scrape the relevant portions of the Google results.
The easiest way to scrape Google results is to use the Google scrape library. This is a small web application written in R that you use to scrape Google search results in RDF. The Google dibz package is used to build the Google Dibble Tool, a graphical query tool using dibz syntax, that allows you to look at the structure and relationships of a data set. The Google dibz syntax is similar to XML’s syntax. The Google dibble tool was developed by Rob Jansma and David Goldenberg.
When you scrape Google results using the Google scrape library, you will be given a session. You will create this session by calling Google’s web API. You then define your scrape application, create an RDF model of your business, specify a SQL statement that creates your business’s database, and then run your query. In addition, you have to tell Google how to scrape the pages that you want to scrape. You will specify a target page that you want Google to scrape, and Google will scrape each page in the order that you defined in your RDF session.
To scrape Google search results, first you have to find out how to create a Google search result page. A Google developer help center might have detailed instructions on this matter. Once you are able to create a Google search result page, you can start writing your code. By following the instructions on the Google developer help site, you should be able to write your own code in RDF.
