Python pytrends – Get trending searches from Google

In this post we will be retrieving trending search queries from Google using the pytrends API. The pytrends API allows simple interface for automating downloading of reports from Google Trends.

The trending search function of the API will take a location and so this can be changed as appropriate. The script will also return a pandas data frame.

Full source code for this project can be found below.

import pandas 
from pytrends.request import TrendReq

googleTrends = TrendReq()

Query = googleTrends.trending_searches(pn='united_states') 
df = pandas.DataFrame(Query)


The above at the the time of writing outputs the below data frame.
