⚠️ Warning

The implementation relies on Google's search page DOM being constant. From time to time, Google changes their DOM and thus breaks the implementation.

In the event it changes, this package will be updated as soon as possible.

Also note, that if you call this function too quickly, Google detects that it is being scraped and produces a recaptcha which interferes with the scraping. Don't call it in quick succession. It may take some time before Google unblocks you.

Always use the built-in rate-limiter set to reasonable settings.

  HTTP STATUS CODE: 429 — Too Many Requests
About this page

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?

This page appears when Google automatically detects requests coming from your computer network which appear to be in violation of the Terms of Service. The block will expire shortly after those requests stop. In the meantime, solving the above CAPTCHA will let you continue to use our services.

This traffic may have been sent by malicious software, a browser plug-in, or a script that sends automated requests. If you share your network connection, ask your administrator for help — a different computer using the same IP address may be responsible. Learn more

Sometimes you may be asked to solve the CAPTCHA if you are using advanced terms that robots are known to use, or sending requests very quickly.

var ErrBlocked = errors.New("google block")

ErrBlocked indicates that Google has detected that you were scraping and temporarily blocked you. The duration of the block is unspecified.

var GoogleDomains = map[string]string{}/* 198 elements not displayed */

var RateLimit = rate.NewLimiter(rate.Inf, 0)

RateLimit sets a global limit to how many requests to Google Search can be made in a given time interval. The default is unlimited (but obviously Google Search will block you temporarily if you do too many calls too quickly).
