In this article, we will try to do google search using python code, this comes handy in case you are working on a python project and you need to access some data from the web and the search result(from the web) is going to be used inside your project.
C:\Users\rajesh>python -m pip install google Collecting google Downloading https://files.pythonhosted.org/packages/c8/b1/887e715b39ea7d413a06565713c5ea0e3132156bd6fc2d8b165cee3e559c/google-2.0.1.tar.gz Requirement already satisfied: beautifulsoup4 in c:\python\python361\lib\site-packages (from google) (4.6.0) Installing collected packages: google Running setup.py install for google ... done Successfully installed google-2.0.1
If all the above prerequisites are done, you can write a code to do google search using python.
Below is the program where the user wants to search specific keyword (for example: “AI in python” or “Tutorialspoint”) and wants all the link (assume top 10 results from the google search) to be used in his python project.
# Performing google search using Python code class Gsearch_python: def __init__(self,name_search): self.name = name_search def Gsearch(self): count = 0 try : from googlesearch import search except ImportError: print("No Module named 'google' Found") for i in search(query=self.name,tld='co.in',lang='en',num=10,stop=1,pause=2): count += 1 print (count) print(i + '\n') if __name__=='__main__': gs = Gsearch_python("Tutorialspoint Python") gs.Gsearch()

The similar result we’ll get when we try to search it through the browser −
Incase we want the query search result directly through a browser instead of giving links of the result, below is the program −
from googlesearch import * import webbrowser #to search, will ask search query at the time of execution query = input("Input your query:") #iexplorer_path = r'C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe %s' chrome_path = r'C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe %s' for url in search(query, tld="co.in", num=1, stop = 1, pause = 2): webbrowser.open("https://google.com/search?q=%s" % query)
>>> =============== RESTART: C:/Python/Python361/google_search1.py =============== Input your query:Tutorialspoint
Above I searched for a query “tutorialspoint”, and it will pop-up a browser window with −
