Description Author

This class can be used to perform searches and retrieve results from Google.

It can send HTTP requests to the Google search pages to perform searches for given keywords.

The class can parse the retrieved search result pages and extract the result URLs, titles, description snippet and cache-urls. You will also get the number of results, that's it, I think, that is everything you want to have from Google. ;)

It retrieves a single page of results. The number of pages and the number of results per page can be configured.

The class uses randomly selected proxy-servers such that Google certainly won't black-list you, decrease your pagerank or whatever and the searches get better anonymization.

-Integrate it into your website (use “site:” in the query).
-Playing around with Google-results, you want to analyze, compare, check Google's results? Create a script using the results provided by this class.
-Install it locally or on your webspace to get a nice Google-interface with more anonymity.
