Expert:  ATLPROG replied 6 years ago.
I just see "" in the question, and it points to Google Polska homepage

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Is it possible to set up a formula which can identify the keyword "test1" which always shows after "&q=" ?

I am trying to fix this in EXCEL so i easily can use the same formula on a bigger workload, and also to combine with other stats.
Expert:  ATLPROG replied 6 years ago.
Yes its possible.
Will it be fine if i create a macro that would look for URL in a column (say Column A) and populate Column B with the keyword as in this example "test1"

And how soon do you need this
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Let me see if I understand you correctly. So that Macro will scan the tekst in column A which will contain the complete google link, and then lookup &q= and pull out the keywords that comes after, in this case "test1" ?

Sometimes this &q= appear on the very end of the google link, other times in the middle. When it is in the middle the symbol "&" will again say that this is the end of the keyword that you want to lookup.

Sounds ok?

Expert:  ATLPROG replied 6 years ago.
As far as a link has only one "&q=" followed by "&" or "end of string" we are fine.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes - as far as i know, that is the fact. When i need it? Sometime this week? I have no idea how soon you are used to deliver.
