Google Trends Autocomplete API

Our Google Trends Autocomplete API allows you to scrape suggested searches from the Google Trends search page. The API is accessed through the following endpoint: /search?engine=google_trends_autocomplete. A user may query the following: https://serpapi.com/search?engine=google_trends_autocomplete utilizing a GET request. Head to the playground for a live and interactive demo.

API Parameters

Search Query

q

Required

Parameter defines the query you want to search. You can use anything that you would use in a regular Google Trends search. The query is used to retrieve suggested searches.

Localization

hl

Optional

Parameter defines the language to use for the Google Trends Autocomplete search. It's a two-letter language code. (e.g., en for English, es for Spanish, or fr for French) Head to the Google languages for a full list of supported Google languages.

Serpapi Parameters

engine

Required

Set parameter to google_trends_autocomplete to use the Google Trends API engine.

no_cache

Optional

Parameter will force SerpApi to fetch the Google Trends Autocomplete results even if a cached version is already present. A cache is served only if the query and all parameters are exactly the same. Cache expires after 1h. Cached searches are free, and are not counted towards your searches per month. It can be set to false (default) to allow results from the cache, or true to disallow results from the cache. no_cache and async parameters should not be used together.

async

Optional

Parameter defines the way you want to submit your search to SerpApi. It can be set to false (default) to open an HTTP connection and keep it open until you got your search results, or true to just submit your search to SerpApi and retrieve them later. In this case, you'll need to use our Searches Archive API to retrieve your results. async and no_cache parameters should not be used together. async should not be used on accounts with Ludicrous Speed enabled.

api_key

Required

Parameter defines the SerpApi private key to use.

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 suggested searches.

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 Trends.
This API does not have html response, just a text. search_metadata.prettify_html_file contains prettified version of the result. It is displayed in the playground.
