Let’s retrieve the organic results for “gym club Brooklyn”.
This is the formula we need:
=IMPORTFROMGOOGLE("gym club brooklyn")
Within seconds, you’ll get the following data points for your results: title, description, and webpage’s URL. Google may also include the publication date and the rating for some pages. For a full list of available data selectors, check out our Google Search selectors glossary.
The =IMPORTFROMGOOGLE() function can retrieve results for up to 50 sets of keywords! To collect data for multiple keywords, write them separated by commas or select a range of cells containing them:
The function has additional features which allow you to collect data using different options. You can specify these criteria using the function’s third parameter: options.
Specify the number of results
By default, the function displays the first 10 Google results. However, you can specify the exact number of results you want to retrieve, whether it’s only the first or the first 300.
For example, if you only want to retrieve the first result, use the following formula:
=IMPORTFROMGOOGLE("gym club brooklyn","title,body,link","num_results:1")
Choose the Google domain and results language
Our ready-to-use template is set to search within google.com, but you can change this setting to any domain you want.
The following example retrieves results from google.fr:
=IMPORTFROMGOOGLE("gym club brooklyn","title,body,link","domain:.fr")
Likewise, you can restrict the results to websites in a specified language.
The following example retrieves results in English only:
=IMPORTFROMGOOGLE("gym club brooklyn","title,body,link","languages:en")
Use “period” to filter by publication date
The “period” option allows you to filter the websites collected by publication date. You can select results from the past hour, the past 24 hours, the past week, the past month, or the past year.
For example, use this formula to retrieve results published in the past year:
=IMPORTFROMGOOGLE("gym club brooklyn","title,body,link","period:year")
You can combine several options within the same function, like in the example below:
=IMPORTFROMGOOGLE("gym club brooklyn","title,body,link","domain:.fr,numResults:50")
We’ve designed an easy-to-use template.
Make sure you have installed and activated ImportFromWeb in your Google Sheets.
