How to scrape Google news results

Google News is one of the largest news aggregators worldwide, available in over 124 countries and in 40 languages. 

The world has changed over the past 20 years and Google News has become even more useful for different businesses, individual researchers, students, and everyone else who wants to keep up with the latest news. 

There are over 24 billion searches for Google News results on publishers’ websites every month.

In order to identify and organize the stories being covered around the world, Google’s algorithms analyze hundreds of different factors using AI. 

Scraping Google news can help provide a treasure trove of data to evaluate current events, and monitor data about companies, persons, products, etc. 

If you’re an agency, you can scrape Google news for a specific topic or brand for a specific region not to miss any update.

Businesses, in general, can use Google News to track news events related to their products, brand, or competitors.

If you are dealing with the stock market, you can use Google News to keep up with real-time financial news, and more. 

Students and researchers can scrape Google News for fact-finding and aggregate a large amount of research material for further analysis.
