Hello, I have php application that process URL and KEYWORD to get me information about site position in Google search page. For example when I type www.cars.com and keyword audi, application connect to the Google and tell me www.cars.com is on the position number 4 with keyword audi.

But I need to process in application more keywords at one time. I have script listed below that make arrays from lines in <textarea>, but I dont know how to edit main script.

For example, URL will be www.cars.com and keywords will be:
audi
bmw
skoda

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.
<?
             $data = $_POST["text"];
 
		$data_array = explode("\n", $data);
				
		$arrayKeys = array_keys($data_array);
				
		for ($i=0; $i<count($data_array); $i++) {
		echo $data_array[($arrayKeys[$i])] . "<br />";
				}
 
?>
 
 
<?
    $engine="Google.sk";
 
    $serp="http://www.google.sk/search?q=<%key%>&hl=sk&btnG=Hladat+v+Google&num=<%num%>&sa=N";
 
    $splitter="<div class=g";
 
    $num=$HTTP_POST_VARS['num'];
 
    $search_url=str_replace('<%key%>', urlencode($HTTP_POST_VARS['key']), $serp);
                   $search_url=str_replace('<%num%>', urlencode($num), $search_url);
                   $lines = file_get_contents($search_url);
                   $sections = split($splitter, $lines);
 
                $pos[$engine]=0;
                   foreach ($sections as $key => $value) {

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>
