Import Google Search Data into SQL Server using SSIS

Easily back up Google Search results to SQL Server using the SSIS components for Google Search.

Using SQL Server as a backup for critical business data provides an essential safety net against loss. Backing up data to SQL Server enables business users to more easily connect that data with features like reporting, analytics, and more.

This example demonstrates how to use the CData SSIS Tasks for Google Search inside of a SQL Server SSIS workflow to transfer Google Search results into a Microsoft SQL Server database.

Add the Components

To get started, add a new Google Search source and SQL Server ADO.NET destination to a new data flow task.

Create a New Connection Manager

Follow the steps below to save Google Search connection properties in a connection manager.

  1. In the Connection Manager window, right-click and then click New Connection. The Add SSIS Connection Manager dialog is displayed.
  2. In the Connection Manager type menu, select GoogleSearch. The CData Google Search Connection Manager is displayed.
  3. Configure connection properties.

    To search with a Google custom search engine, you need to set the CustomSearchId and ApiKey connection properties.

    To obtain the CustomSearchId property, sign into Google Custom Search Engine and create a new search engine.

    To obtain the ApiKey property, you must enable the Custom Search API in the Google API Console.

Configure the Google Search Source

Follow the steps below to specify the query to be used to extract Google Search results.

  1. Double-click the Google Search source to open the source component editor.
  2. In the Connection Manager menu, select the connection manager previously created.
  3. Specify the query to use for the data extraction. For example: SELECT Title, ViewCount FROM VideoSearch WHERE SearchTerms = 'WayneTech'
  4. Close the Google Search Source control and connect it to the ADO.NET Destination.

Configure the SQL Server Destination

Follow the steps below to specify the SQL server table to load the Google Search results into.

  1. Open the ADO.NET Destination and add a New Connection. Enter your server and database information here.
  2. In the Data access mode menu, select "table or view".
  3. In the Table Or View menu, select the table or view to populate.
  4. Configure any properties you wish to on the Mappings screen.

Run the Project

You can now run the project. After the SSIS Task has finished executing, your database will be populated with Google Search results.
