Tip: In the example jq helped to pretty format the outputted json: $ serps google:search "github" | jq '.'

Advanced usage

    $ serps google:search --tld="co.uk" --lr="lang_es" "some keywords" phantomjs

With proxy:

    $ serps google:search --proxy="http://proxy:8080" "some keywords"

Page and result per page:

    $ serps google:search --page=2 --res-per-page=20 "some keywords"

User Ageng:

    $ serps google:search --user-agent="..." "some keywords"

Mobile search

This is an alertnative to the user agent option to use an hard coded mobile user agent

    $ serps google:search --mobile "some keywords"

Dump page in a file:

In a addition of printing the results you can save the dom in a file

    $ serps google:search --dump="/path/to/file.html" "some keywords"

By default the dump option wont be able to process if the file you specify already exists. The option force-dump makes it able to override an existing file:

    $ serps google:search --dump="/path/to/file.html" --force-dump=true "some keywords"

Read and parse a html google file saved locally instead of doing http query

    $ serps google:search --file=./google--search-file.html "some keywords"
