    I want to display the amount of competing pages for a particular keyword phrase in Google search results.

    For example the page might read

    ?The keyword example has about 588,000,000 competing pages?

    Where the number 588,000,000 is dynamic since I have to this for many keywords.

    Is there a way to scrape the ?Results 1 - 10 of about 588,000,000? off Google? API? Another source that shows similar data? My site runs PHP.

    All feedback is appreciated.
    Thanks!
    -Eric

    Yup. Write a simple php script to hit the Google URl with the search term in it (see: Curl) then strip HTML from the results, and grab whatever text is between "Results 1-10 of about " and " for "

    Thanks TheHockeyGod,
    Can you provide a bit more detail / example or resources? I'm still a bit of a PHP newb.
