Google Search Automation with Python Selenium.

0 votes

Hi,

I want to know how to automate google search in python selenium.

I am done with below steps;

  1. Open chrome
  2. Open Google.com
  3. Enter value by sendkeys

I am stuck at below;

  1. When I put search item 'Software Testing' it given suggested search then I want to know 
  2. How to select any result by down arrow key
  3. I could click the 'Google Search' but if I want to do multiple tabs and then need to reach on 'Google Search' button, how to do that ?

I tried with 

WebElement.sendKeys(Keys.RETURN); but it wont work and there is issue with 

  1. sendKeys, send_Keys, and send.Keys syntax
  2. Issue with TAB and Tab. RETURN and Return. 

Please suggest.

Thanks in Advance

Adi.

You can simply automate pressing the "Enter" key instead of finding and clicking the search button. Here's the script:

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys
import os

driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path=os.path.abspath("chromedriver"))
driver.get("http://www.google.com")

que=driver.find_element_by_xpath("//input[@name='q']")
que.send_keys("Software testing")
que.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)

You can use the down arrow key to select the autosuggestion options. This works:

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys
import os
import time

driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path=os.path.abspath("chromedriver"))
driver.get("http://www.google.com")

que=driver.find_element_by_xpath("//input[@name='q']")
que.send_keys("Software testing")
time.sleep(2)
que.send_keys(Keys.ARROW_DOWN)
que.send_keys(Keys.ARROW_DOWN)
time.sleep(2)
que.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)
Thanks ! That Worked for me.
Thank you payal, for providing the solution for this issue.
@Payal, thanks for the code. its working fine for me.
Try This 
from selenium import webdriver
import time
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys

driver = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path="C:\Program Files\chromedriver")
driver.set_page_load_timeout("10")
driver.get("https://www.google.com/")
driver.maximize_window()
que = driver.find_element_by_name("q")
que.send_keys("Software Testing")
time.sleep(3)
que.send_keys(Keys.ARROW_DOWN)
que.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)
