Tool to parse search results

Only need to know the number of results returned.

Hi there,

As part of a project I need to be able to report on the number of results in Google and MSN (both the .com and .co.uk sets) for a selected list of search terms.

For example I need to know that there are about 1.2 million results for blue widgets, 950,000 results for red widgets and 123,000 for left handed green widgets.

In the past I have done this by hand and made a note of the results, this is easy - if time consuming - to do for 30 search terms but with additional terms is getting to be a pain.

I have a google API code so this would be used and I'm only talking about maybe 200 - 250 queries per week on each engine so would not exceed the T&C of the API.

Does anyone know of a tool that could be used?

Cheers

John
