Hey,

i am working on a paper where i want to use data downloaded from "Google Insights for Search" in Stata. It is possible to download a .csv File with the results when you log in with your google account. My question is if it is possible to automate login, search and data entry and download of the .csv file in Stata?

Unfortunately at the moment there is no API for Google Insights for Search yet.
I found some examples of a
- R package http://www.stanford.edu/~knoepfle/cgi-bin/flatpress/?x=entry:entry101220-023915
and an
- C# example http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1656446/download-csv-from-google-insight-for-search
for solving my problem.
Do you think it is possible to program something like that in Stata or Mata?

Thank You and best Regards
Ulrich Brandt
