Search Google WITHOUT API

Hi,

I am looking for some code to search google.

All I want returned is a list of URLS, no descriptions.

I want this to work without using the google API.

Thanks

First, automated 'googling' with Google is against their terms of service. But, this link has some info which returns result numbers and could possibly be modified. I don't know... haven't really looked at the code.

Cut from Google's Terms of Service:

No Automated Querying
You may not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system without express permission in advance from Google. Note that "sending automated queries" includes, among other things:

using any software which sends queries to Google to determine how a website or webpage "ranks" on Google for various queries;
"meta-searching" Google; and
performing "offline" searches on Google.

Please do not write to Google to request permission to "meta-search" Google for a research project, as such requests will not be granted.

Just use the Google API. That's what it's for!

Do you honestly think that somebody who has just stated they DO NOT want to use the API wants to be told to use the api?

Well, I did assume that you don't want to violate the Google terms of service. I also don't understand why you don't want to use this API anyways. And I also don't understand the problem you had with the first suggested solution and instead chose to accept some sample from some book.

What's your problem with the Google API anyways? It seems to work real fine.

I accepted mnasman's solution because it is exactly what I asked for!

I choose not to disclose why I don't want to use the google api.
