I'm thinking of making a website to find the lowest price of an item on the net. The problem is that in the terms of use of Google search API it says that it is forbidden to:

Scrape, build databases, or otherwise create permanent copies of such content, or keep
cached copies longer than permitted by the cache header;

But somehow SerpAPI circumvents that? Is that legal? How does that work?

  • How are you hoping to use the Google Search API for this? It seems like you could just crawl a bunch of shopping sites without involving Google at all. Commented Dec 29, 2023 at 17:11
  • ummm different sites have different copy right restrictions. I don't know if I can just take the information listed in their site. However, I'm wondering if I using this service is fine for such a purpose Commented Dec 29, 2023 at 17:51
