pygoogle is a very basic Google search module for Python. It has a limitation of only 64 results. If you want more results, see xgoogle
Pages Google's Search API returns 4 or 8 results per 'page'. So, if you want 40 results, you will need to request 4x10pages or 8x5pages. pygoogle uses 8 results per page (default, use rsz to change this to 4).
Examples Get URLs from the first 5 result pages from pygoogle import pygoogle g = pygoogle('quake 3 arena') g.pages = 5 print 'Found %s results'%(g.get_result_count()) g.get_urls() Use at command line you can use pygoogle at command line:
python pygoogle.py quake 3 arena will show about 10 results (truncated):
