Let’s set it up!
The first step is to create a Coda table with the information you want to save.
Bardeen will open your search query based on the keywords that you enter and get information like title, description and link.
You will be redirected to install the browser extension when you run it for the first time. Bardeen will also prompt you to integrate Coda.
Click the “Pin it” button at the top of this page to get this automation saved to your Playbooks.
Activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and click on the playbook card, and the setup flow will start.
You will be asked to enter your Coda table and specify the maximum number of Google search results you would like to save to your Coda table. After you choose the database and maximum number of results to fetch, you will get a prompt to map the information to the fields in Coda.
The left side consists of all the fields Bardeen will scrape for you. On the right side, specify the fields in Coda that you want to associate with the information on the left. If you don’t want a piece of information, leave that field empty, and it will be skipped. That’s it!
Click on “Save Input” and checkmark Coda and the maximum number of results you want to get. This will save you time from setup in the future. You can edit Inputs later by hovering over the playbook.
When you want to save Google Search results for a keyword to a Coda table, activate Bardeen (or hit Option + B on Mac or ALT + B on PC on your keyboard) and run this playbook. It will query the search and save the results to your Coda table with on click.
