audi
bmw

and script will get me informations:
audi position 3, bmw position 5, skoda position 8

I hope you help me. And sorry for poor level of english.

Try this. I'm heading out, so I won't be available to offer further support right away - might be back on tomorrow evening. Hopefully if it doesn't work on the first try someone else can get you the rest of the way.
<?
    $engine="Google.sk";
?>
Position on Google.sk: <br />
<ul>
<?
$keys = explode("\n",$_POST['text']);
foreach($keys as $key) {  $search_url=sprintf("http://www.google.sk/search?q=%s&hl=sk&btnG=Hladat+v+Google&num=%d&sa=N",urlencode($key),urlencode($_POST['num']));
 
    $splitter="<div class=g";
    $lines = file_get_contents($search_url);
    $sections = split($splitter, $lines);
 
    $pos[$engine]=0;
    foreach ($sections as $key1 => $value) {
        if (strpos($value, $HTTP_POST_VARS['url'])) {
             $pos[$engine]=$key1;
             break;
        }
    }
    if ($pos[$engine]==0) {$pos[$engine]="-";}
    echo "<li> $key position {$pos[$engine]}</li>";
}
?>
</ul>
