Google SERP proxy

Learn how to collect search results from Google Search-powered tools. Get search results from localized domains in multiple countries, e.g. the US and Germany.

Google SERP proxy allows you to extract search results from Google Search-powered services. It allows searching in various countries and to dynamically switch between country domains.

Our Google SERP proxy currently supports the below services.

  • Google Search (http://www.google.<country domain>/search).
  • Google Shopping (http://www.google.<country domain>/search?tbm=shop).

Google SERP proxy can only be used for Google Search and Shopping. It cannot be used to access other websites.

When using the proxy, pricing is based on the number of requests made.

To use Google SERP proxy or for more information, contact us.

Connecting to Google SERP proxy

Requests made through the proxy are automatically routed through a proxy server from the selected country and pure HTML code of the search result page is returned.

Important: Only HTTP requests are allowed, and the Google hostname needs to start with the www. prefix.

For code examples on how to connect to Google SERP proxies, see the examples page.

Username parameters

The username field enables you to pass various parameters, such as groups and country, for your proxy connection.

When using Google SERP proxy, the username should always be:

1
groups-GOOGLE_SERP

Unlike datacenter or residential proxies, there is no session parameter.

If you use the country parameter, the Google proxy location is used if you access a website whose hostname (stripped of www.) starts with google.

Country selection

You must use the correct Google domain to get results for your desired country code.

For example:

  • Search results from the USA: http://www.google.com/search?q=<query>

  • Shopping results from Great Britain: http://www.google.co.uk/seach?tbm=shop&q=<query>
