Scraping-Google-Reviews-Made-Easy-Code-and-No-Code-Techniques-Unveiled

This blog explores various techniques to scrape Google Reviews data efficiently. Implementing these methods allows you to seamlessly export Google reviews to formats like Excel, making the information more accessible and convenient for analysis and other purposes.

There are three different approaches for scraping Google Reviews:

  • Manual scraping with Python or JavaScript involves writing custom code in Python or JavaScript to scrape Google Maps reviews programmatically.
  • Actowiz Solutions' Google Review Scraper (no-code tool): Actowiz Solutions provides a user-friendly, no-code tool designed explicitly for scraping Google Reviews. Users can employ this tool without the need for coding knowledge.
  • Google Reviews Scraper API by Actowiz Solutions: Actowiz Solutions offers an API designed explicitly for scraping Google Reviews. Developers can use this API to access and retrieve Google Reviews programmatically without building the scraping infrastructure from scratch.

Each method provides flexibility and ease of use, catering to users with varying technical expertise and requirements.

Build a Google Review Scraper Using JavaScript or to Scrape Data

In this section, we will demonstrate how to scrape Google Reviews using either Python or JavaScript by leveraging the browser automation framework called Playwright. This approach offers the advantage of bypassing common scraping blocks that are often implemented to prevent automated data extraction. However, it is important to have a good understanding of the Playwright API to effectively implement this method.

Alternatively, you can build a Google Maps scraper using Python libraries such as Requests, LXML, or Beautiful Soup. However, bypassing anti-scraping mechanisms in this manner can be challenging and is beyond the scope of this article.

Here are the steps to scrape Google Maps data using Playwright:

Step 1: Select your preferred programming language from either Python or JavaScript.

Step 2: Install the Playwright framework for your chosen language.

JavaScript

npm install playwright@latest

Step-2

Step 3: Utilize the Playwright API to write code that emulates browser behavior and extracts the desired data from Google Maps. Below is an example of how you can achieve this:

Step-3 Step-4

Learn how to utilize the Playwright library in Python and JavaScript to scrape reviews of the Burj Khalifa from Google with confidence. Two crucial functions must be utilized for this task:

1. The "run" function: This function uses a Playwright instance to scrape the reviews. It opens the Chromium browser, directs to Google, enters your search query, then clicks on search key, and awaits the results to display on the page. It then calls the "extract_details" function to extract the review details and saves the data in a "google_reviews.json" file.

2. The "extract_data" function: This function works with a Playwright page as input as well as returns a listing of dictionaries having restaurant details like title, rating, address, review count, and phone.

To execute the "run" function, utilize a "async_playwright" context manager of the primary functions. A JSON file having the listing of a Google Maps script would be created. Follow the guidelines and use the information wisely. With this knowledge, you can confidently scrape reviews and gather valuable insights.

Step 4: Execute the code and gather the extracted data using Google Maps.

(Note: The xpaths provided in this tutorial might vary depending on the region from which Google Maps is accessed. Different regions can have dynamically rendered xpaths.)

Once you have written the code using Playwright in Python or JavaScript, you can run the script to initiate the scraping process. The code will automate the browser to navigate to Google Maps, perform a search, and load the reviews.

To collect the scraped data, the extract_data function, which you defined earlier, will extract the review details, such as the title, rating, address, review count, and phone. For further analysis, you can then store this data in a structured format, such as a JSON file.

Please handle any potential errors and implement appropriate waiting times to avoid overloading Google's servers and comply with their terms of service.
