You can use various methods to extract the first Google search result URL. One approach is to use a programming language like Python and a library such as BeautifulSoup.


Here is an example code in Python:

import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

def get_first_search_result_url(query):
    # Encode the query string
    query = requests.utils.quote(query)

    # Construct the search URL
    search_url = f"https://www.google.com/search?q={query}"

    # Send a GET request to Google search
    response = requests.get(search_url)
    response.raise_for_status()

    # Parse the HTML response using BeautifulSoup
    soup = BeautifulSoup(response.text, "html.parser")

    # Find the first search result URL
    first_result = soup.find("div", {"class": "yuRUbf"})
    url = first_result.a["href"]

    return url


# Example usage
query = "extract first search result URL"
first_url = get_first_search_result_url(query)
print(first_url)


Make sure you have the requests and BeautifulSoup libraries installed before running this code.


Please note that extracting information from search results may violate Google's terms of service, so it's important to be aware of any legal or ethical considerations.
