rGtrends is an interface for a python Google trends API created by 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.
