Retrieving keywords search volume using Google Adwords API?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

Is it possible to retrieve data for the search volume of keyword(s) using Google API? I tried looking this up in the Adwords API page and all they mentioned was how to use the API with the keyword tool (older version of keyword planner).
My aim is to build an R package that would interface with the API and download search volume's data into R.

Many thanks.

Hi Namaloom,

 

Thank you for your posting. Since your question is about using Google Adwords API to retrieve data for the search volume of keywords, I recommend you posting your question on the Adwords API forum link here: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/adwords-api

Yes, it is possible !

The AdWords API provides a TrafficEstimatorService.


I Know here is not the correct space to answer this question, but as this thread appears as the sixth result for google search terms "google adwords api keyword planner", maybe will it be useful for people (like me) who are searching an answer to this question...

Hi Sebastien,

TrafficEstimatorService is limited as it's estimated data and and not accurate. Correct ?
