In a paper, to be soon published in Conservation Biology and entitle Googling trends in conservation biology, we developed a package named GTrendsR that provides an interface for retrieving and displaying the information returned online by Google Trends in R. Whereas the package is still under development, I'm pleased to present an early overview of GTrendsR. You can download the PDF of the appendix of our paper which presents a detailed tutorial on how to use the package.
This is the first package I develop in R and I probably made some mistakes. So feel free to contact me with suggestions.
The package is now available for download on bitbucket.
