Can I get the total number of results from Google?

Yes, you can. In the response from our SERP API, check the “se_results_count” field. It will show you the total count of results for a search query, like the number shown in the example screenshot below.

The “se_results_count” field will be indicated in the results for any search engine supported in SERP API. In the results sample below, you can find the “se_results_count” after the “item_types” array:
