We will be using Ruby in this example, and the process is similar to other languages like Python, Node, Java, Javascript, etc.

First, you need to install the SerpApi client in your Gemfile.

gem 'google_search_results'

Then install the gem.

bundle install

Set up the SerpApi credentials and search.

require 'google_search_results'

YahooSearch.api_key = "YOUR_API_KEY"
search = "search query")

puts search.get_hash

To retrieve the Yahoo Trending Results for a given search query, you can use the following code:

results = search.get_hash[:trending_searches][:results]

You can store Yahoo Trending Results in databases or export them to a CSV file.

require 'csv'"trending_searches.csv", "w") do |csv|
  csv << ["position", "title", "link"]
  results.each do |trending|
    csv << [trending[:position], trending[:title], trending[:link]]
