I have been trying to pull Covid data from Gtrends but I am getting the following error:
I am using the grendsR package in R.
# google search for covid (week started XX - SUN): https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?geo=US-HI&q=covid search_covid <- gtrends(keyword = 'covid', geo = 'US-HI', time = 'today+5-y') %>% pluck("interest_over_time") %>% as_tibble() %>% select(date, hits) %>% rename(search_covid = hits) %>% mutate(date = ymd(date) + days(1), search_covid = as.numeric(search_covid %>% ifelse(. == '<1', 0, .))) search_covid %>% ts_plot() search_covid %>% tail()
I am getting this error: Error in interest_over_time(widget, comparison_item, tz) :
Status code was not 200. Returned status code:401
Any help would be appreciated.
Reloading the gtrendsR package to the newer version seemed to have solved this problem:
install.packages("readr") install.packages("colorspace") install.packages("vctrs") install.packages("gtrendsR")
