Daily and Realtime trends used as it is. For both methods user interface language are required. For Realtime trends category is required param, list of available categories - TrendsCategories.

Please notice that Realtime trends are available only for limited list of locations.

For InterestOverTime, InterestByLocation and Related - widget and user interface language are required.

To get widget you should call Explore methods first, it will return constant list of available widgets, every widget corresponds to methods above.

Widget includes request params and unique token for every method.

Also Explore method supports single and multiple items for comparision. Please take a look at ExploreRequest input. It supports search by multiple categories and locations which you can get as tree structure by ExploreCategories and ExploreLocations.

Please notice, when you call Explore method for keywords comparison, two first widgets would be for all of compared items, next widgets would be for each of individual items.

Available methods

  • Daily(ctx context.Context, hl, loc string) ([]*TrendingSearch, error) - daily trends descending ordered by days and articles corresponding to it.

  • Explore(ctx context.Context, r *ExploreRequest, hl string) ([]*ExploreWidget, error) - widgets with tokens. Every widget is related to specific method (InterestOverTime, InterestByLocation, Related) and contains required token and request information.

  • InterestOverTime(ctx context.Context, w *ExploreWidget, hl string) ([]*Timeline, error) - interest over time, dots for chart.

  • InterestByLocation(ctx context.Context, w *ExploreWidget, hl string) ([]*GeoMap, error) - interest by location, list for map with geo codes and interest values.

  • Related(ctx context.Context, w *ExploreWidget, hl string) ([]*RankedKeyword, error) - related topics or queries, supports two types of widgets.

  • TrendsCategories() map[string]string - available categories for Realtime trends.
