ChannelMix can automate data from your Google Trends reports by passing Google Trends the criteria used when setting up a search.
- Search Term / Topic
- Type of Search
The easiest way to request this type of data is to open a request in ChannelMix Help Center and provide the exact URL(s) that you need to automate. For instance, this URL is a report for the parameters below:
- Search Term / Topic = "analytics"
- Geo = "us"
- Timeframe "5 Years"
- Category = "all categories"
- Type of Search = "web search"
If you provide the URL, we will be able to decipher the needed parameters and setup a dataset that refreshes on a schedule.
Keep in mind that Google Trends datasets provide an index of the exact parameters. For example, in the example above, you will always ONLY have 5 years of data because the index is recalculated each time the report runs with new data.
Custom timeframes are not supported.
