+## Current status ##
+Because of changes in Google's implementation of the trends package, the python end of the API needs to be updated. I am currently in the process of working on this but the package as it stands is broken until I fix the backend Python code. I'm sorry for any inconvenience.

rGtrends is an interface for a python [Google trends](http://www.google.com/trends) API created by [Sal Uryasev](Sal Uryasev). It works by downloading a temporary CSV within a python environment, parsing it, sending it to R, and parsing it a bit more into a dataframe. As of 9/27/2012 Google changed it's interface for Trends and merged it with insight. At the moment only raw search volume data can be downloaded. Once the python code is updated I will return the functionality of parsing search results by region and language.
