from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
url = 'https://www.google.com/search?q=' + query
page = requests.get(url)
soup = BeautifulSoup(page.content, 'html.parser')
links = soup.find_all('a')
for link in links:
href = link.get('href')
if "url?q=" in href and not "webcache" in href:
query = input("Enter your search query: ")
This code uses the requests library to send a GET request to the Google search page with the user’s query. Then, it uses BeautifulSoup to parse the HTML content of the search page and extract the links. Finally, it filters the URLs to exclude any links that contain “webcache” and prints the results.
While this code is not a complete search engine, it can provide you with a starting point to build your own tool.
