Why use Google Index Checking API to Build an Index Checker Tool?

The best option for building an index checker tool is using Google index checker API because it provides accurate and up-to-date data.

Google changes its algorithm frequently, and if you use a tool that scrapes Google search results, you may need more accurate or updated data.

API also provides data in a structured format, which makes it easy to process and analyze.

Getting Started with SERP API from SERPHouse.com

You can find the documentation on our website explaining how to use API.

Building the Google Index Checker Tool

To build a Google indexing checker tool, you must request Google to check if your website appears in the search results. Here’s the code snippet to do that:

Request to google

Let’s break down the code. 

First, import the requests library, which allows us to make HTTP requests. Then, we set the api_token variable to our API key from SERPHouse.com and the domain variable to our website’s domain name.

Next, we construct the URL to request SERP API. We use the site operator to search for our website in Google’s index. And use api_token in the URL to authenticate a request.

Then, make the request using the requests.get() method and store the response in the response variable. We then parse the JSON data using the response.json() method and store it in the data variable.

Finally, we check if the “organic” key exists, and it is not empty. Then, print a message saying that Google indexes the website. 

If it’s open, publish a statement saying that Google does not index the website. We print an error message if the “organic” key doesn’t exist.
