The Trendy application is being retired in the new year. The new web application, ThingSpeak, offers similar functionality. We recommend that active Trendy users who are looking to create new trends use ThingSpeak. To begin collecting your data in ThingSpeak, please read the tutorial : ThingSpeak for Trendy users. Although Trendy no longer allows the creation of new trends, the application will still remain accessible until January 13, 2016. Until that date, you can view your current trends and download your data. After that date, your data will no longer be accessible. Thanks for using Trendy and we encourage you to check out ThingSpeak.

Hi, do you know how I can extract the number of articles found on Google search?

What is the number of articles?

When you search something on Google news, you can see the number of articles found. E.g. seraching for "tzunami disaster", Google displays 3450 articles. I need to collect it month by month from 1999 to today. Is it possible with matlab?

You extract it easily: there is a results count on the web page you can retrieve (just use the urlfilter on it). You won't be able to import the historical data into Trendy, however. Only the new data that comes in.

this is not that clear. But this counts only the numbers?, I mean, it doesn't change the month automatically, right?

No, it doesn't. It just parses a number from whatever url you provide.

If you want to filter by months, you have to provide the according url.

it is simple to write such codes in matlab?

Of course it is

I know I'm asking too much, but could you help me in writing these codes?

I could help if you had some specific questions. Sorry, i can't do that for you..

Thank you!

Well, Google has finally closed the old search API. Now it is required to have an API key to use JSON search. I don't see a way to use it without exposing it to the wild (not that it matters a lot, but still).

Oh, common, they closed the API only to open it again after several days?...
