In Python, a list of businesses is generated based on a search query and location. The businesses are presented as a list of dictionaries, with each dictionary containing information about a single business.
Also, the number of results that match that search is provided, along with information about the first match found. Businesses are searched by location and/or by keyword(s). It’s possible to filter the results by either field or value. By name, for example, to search for specific businesses. By category, to search for businesses in a particular category. By location, to search for businesses in a particular region or region range. By address, to search for businesses in a particular region or region range.By phone number, to search for businesses in a particular region or region range.By website address, to search for businesses that have a website.And so on…It is obvious that these data can be very useful for different companies, so Python developers have created an API just for this purpose. And it’s called Business Search API.
In Python these data can be obtained in a really simple way using the following classes:Business: Represents a business entry retrieved from the API.Result: Represents an individual result from the business search API.Connection: Represents the connection to the endpoint specified by using an API access key.With this classes we can create a python script that generates a list of data from the JSON Response of any business search we do using the Business Search API. Without any doubt this is a very useful tool in Python programming environment. How To Use It?Businesses searching by country code or city name is allowed by this API. You can search by business name, category, or location (lat/long). You must specify one of these parameters when requesting search results.Business Name Search:Use the following parameters to look up businesses based on name:1- The country code where you want to search2- Your API key3-The name you want to look up4-The type of units you want to display (eg: USD)5- The maximum number of items you want to retrieve6- Add your API key as usual7- Endpoint for final validationBusinesses lookup by Category:1- The country code where you want to store2- Your API key3- The category you wish to examine4-The type of units you want to display (eg: USD)5- The maximum
Search businesses based on your queries and required location, and receive a list of businesses that match that search. Also, get additional information like phone number, address, business name and categories, website, emails, and more.
