To access Google search results programmatically, you can use the Google Custom Search JSON/Atom API. Follow these steps:

  1. Create a project in the Google Developers Console and enable the "Custom Search JSON API" for your project.
  2. Obtain an API key by generating an API key in the "Credentials" section of your project.
  3. Construct a URL with the desired search parameters and your API key. The URL should be in the following format: https://customsearch.googleapis.com/customsearch/v1?key=YOUR_API_KEY&cx=YOUR_CX&q=SEARCH_QUERY Replace YOUR_API_KEY with your actual API key and YOUR_CX with your custom search engine ID. You can create a custom search engine in the Google Custom Search Control Panel.
  4. Send an HTTP GET request to the constructed URL using your preferred programming language. This request should return the search results in JSON format.
  5. Parse the JSON response in your program to extract the required information such as titles, URLs, and snippets.
  6. Handle the retrieved search results as per your application's requirements.


Note that the Google Custom Search JSON/Atom API has limitations on the number of searches allowed per day, and you may need to adhere to Google's terms of service while using the API.
