Google Search


You can use the Google Search connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Google Search and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Google Search, you first must establish a connection to Google Search. Follow these steps to connect Google Search to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Google Search row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • API Key - Enter your key for the Custom Search API.

    • Custom Search Id - Enter the Id for the Custom Search engine. You can obtain this Id by signing into the Google Custom Search engine and creating a new search engine. After you create the engine, you can find the engine’s ID in the Control Panel by navigating to Setup > Basics > Search Engine ID.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
