RGoogleTrends_0.2-1.tar.gz (20 October 2009)

This package provides programmatic access to Google Trends data. This is information about the popularity of a particular query. It provides information about how often the query has been made

The package also provides a way to read cookies from Firefox by accessing the cookies.sqlite database.


See the help pages for the functions and their examples. Basically, set the R option GooglePassword with
 option(GooglePassword = c(login = "password"))
Then use
 ans = getGTrends("query term")
