DESCRIPTION

This module provides a simple, straight-forward interface to the Google Webmaster Tools (Search Console) API, Version 3.

See https://developers.google.com/webmaster-tools/v3/parameters for the complete API documentation.

This module is heavily based on Nick Wellnhofer's Net::Google::Analytics module

Net::Google::WebmasterTools - Simple interface to the Google Webmaster Tools (Search Console) API

GETTING STARTED

Net::Google::WebmasterTools::OAuth2 provides for easy authentication and authorization using OAuth 2.0. First, you have to register your application through the Google APIs Console.

You will receive a client id and a client secret for your application in the APIs Console. For command line testing, you should use "Installed application" as application type. Then you can obtain a refresh token for your application by running the following script with your client id and secret:

    use Net::Google::WebmasterTools::OAuth2;

    my $oauth = Net::Google::WebmasterTools::OAuth2->new(
        client_id     => 'Your client id',
        client_secret => 'Your client secret',
    );

    $oauth->interactive;

The script will display a URL and prompt for a code. Visit the URL in a browser and follow the directions to grant access to your application. You will be shown the code that you should enter in the Perl script. Then the script retrieves and prints a refresh token which can be used for non-interactive access.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

    my $wmt = Net::Google::WebmasterTools->new;

The constructor doesn't take any arguments.

METHODS

auth_params

    $wmt->auth_params(@auth_params);

Set the raw authentication parameters as key/value pairs. These will we send as HTTP headers.

token

    $wmt->token($token);

Authenticate using a token returned from Net::Google::WebmasterTools::OAuth2.

new_request

    my $req = $wmt->new_request(param => $value, ...);

Creates and returns a new Net::Google::WebmasterTools::Request object.

Valid combinations of report_name and method:

Search Analytics

Search traffic analytics data (documentation)

    report_name => 'searchAnalytics',
    method => 'query'

Sitemaps

XML Sitemaps reports (documentation)

    report_name => 'sitemaps',
    method => 'list' # or delete, get, submit

Sites

    report_name => '',
    method => 'add' # or delete, get, list

URL Crawl Errors Counts

Counts of crawl errors (documentation)

    report_name => 'urlCrawlErrorsCounts',
    method => 'query'

URL Crawl Errors Samples

Information about specific crawl errors (documentation)

    report_name => 'urlCrawlErrorsSamples',
    method => 'get' # or list, markAsFixed

retrieve

    my $res = $wmt->retrieve($req);

Sends the request. $req must be a Net::Google::WebmasterTools::Request object. This method returns a Net::Google::WebmasterTools::Response object.

retrieve_http

    my $res = $wmt->retrieve_http($req);

Sends the request and returns an HTTP::Response object. $req must be a Net::Google::WebmasterTools::Request object.

uri

    my $uri = $wmt->uri($req);

Returns the URI of the request. $req must be a Net::Google::WebmasterTools::Request object. This method returns a URI object.

user_agent

    $wmt->user_agent($ua);
