Get Google My Business Updates Results by id

 

My Business Updates API will provide you with a content of posts publicly shared by any business entity on its Google My Business profile.

The returned results are specific to the indicated cid (client ID) or keyword, location and language parameters. We emulate all the parameters with the highest accuracy so that the results you receive will match the actual search results for the specified parameters at the time of task setting. You can always check the returned results accessing the check_url in the Incognito mode to make sure the received data is accurate.

Instead of ‘login’ and ‘password’ use your credentials from https://app.dataforseo.com/api-dashboard

<?php
// You can download this file from here https://cdn.dataforseo.com/v3/examples/php/php_RestClient.zip
require('RestClient.php');
$api_url = 'https://api.dataforseo.com/';
// Instead of 'login' and 'password' use your credentials from https://app.dataforseo.com/api-dashboard
$client = new RestClient($api_url, null, 'login', 'password');

try {
	$result = array();
	// #1 - using this method you can get a list of completed tasks
	// GET /v3/business_data/google/my_business_updates/tasks_ready
	$tasks_ready = $client->get('/v3/business_data/google/my_business_updates/tasks_ready');
	// you can find the full list of the response codes here https://docs.dataforseo.com/v3/appendix/errors
	if (isset($tasks_ready['status_code']) AND $tasks_ready['status_code'] === 20000) {
		foreach ($tasks_ready['tasks'] as $task) {
			if (isset($task['result'])) {
				foreach ($task['result'] as $task_ready) {
					// #2 - using this method you can get results of each completed task
					// GET /v3/business_data/google/my_business_updates/task_get/$id
					if (isset($task_ready['endpoint'])) {
						$result[] = $client->get($task_ready['endpoint']);
					}
					// #3 - another way to get the task results by id
					// GET /v3/business_data/google/my_business_updates/task_get/$id
					/*
					if (isset($task_ready['id'])) {
						$result[] = $client->get('/v3/business_data/google/my_business_updates/task_get/' . $task_ready['id']);
					}
					*/
				}
			}
		}
	}
	print_r($result);
	// do something with result
} catch (RestClientException $e) {
	echo "\n";
	print "HTTP code: {$e->getHttpCode()}\n";
	print "Error code: {$e->getCode()}\n";
	print "Message: {$e->getMessage()}\n";
	print  $e->getTraceAsString();
	echo "\n";
}
$client = null;
?>

The above command returns JSON structured like this:
