Google Top Carousel API

For some searches, Google includes the "Top Carousel" block. It represents the extended knowledge_graph view for a particular topic or a search query. SerpApi is able to make sense of this information and extract name, extensions, link and image.

"Top Carousel" block can be seen on the top of the search page and is a part of the "Knowledge Graph" cluster. It can be included with or without the knowledge_graph block on the right side of the search page. It usually appears for search queries that require list of items or things as a result. It can also show up when using the stick parameter to expand lists inside the knowledge_graph (if you want to learn more about the stick parameter head to our Knowledge Graph documentation page).
