api_key

output

Optional

Parameter defines the final output you want. It can be set to json (default) to get a structured JSON of the results, or html to get the raw html retrieved.

API Results

JSON Results

JSON output includes structured data for Apps store, Audiobooks store, Books store, Movies store, TV store, and Reviews results.

A search status is accessible through search_metadata.status. It flows this way: Processing -> Success || Error. If a search has failed, error will contain an error message. search_metadata.id is the search ID inside SerpApi.

HTML Results

HTML output is useful to debug JSON results or support features not supported yet by SerpApi. HTML output gives you the raw HTML results from Google.
This API does not have html response when showing all reviews, just a text. search_metadata.prettify_html_file contains prettified version of the result. It is displayed in the playground.

Example with store: appsproduct_id: com.google.android.youtube

Example with store: apps, product_id: com.google.android.youtube
