Contents: intro, imports, what will be scraped, process, code, links, outro.

Intro

This blog post is a continuation of Google's web scraping series. Here you'll see examples of how you can scrape Google Inline Shopping results using Python. An alternative SerpApi solution will be shown.

Imports

import requests
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
from serpapi import GoogleSearch
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

What will be scraped

Top block
image

Right block
image

Process

Selecting container

Selecting Title

Selecting Price

Selecting Source

Same process goes for the right block results.

Code

import requests, json, lxml
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

headers = {
    "User-Agent":
    "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36"
    "(KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/70.0.3538.102 Safari/537.36 Edge/18.19582"
}

params = {
  "q": "buy coffe", # intentional grammatical error to display right side shopping results
  "hl": "en",
  "gl": "us"
}

response = requests.get("https://www.google.com/search", headers=headers, params=params)
soup = BeautifulSoup(response.text, 'html.parser')

# scrapes both from top and right side shopping results
for result in soup.select('.pla-hovercard-content-ellip'):
    title = result.select_one('.pymv4e').text
    link = result.select_one('.pla-hovercard-content-ellip a.tkXAec')['href']
    ad_link = f"https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead{result.select_one('.pla-hovercard-content-ellip a')['href']}"
    price = result.select_one('.qptdjc').text
    try:
      rating = result.select_one('.Fam1ne.tPhRLe')["aria-label"].replace("Rated ", "").replace(" out of ", "").replace(",", "")
    except:
      rating = None

    try:
      reviews = result.select_one('.GhQXkc').text.replace("(", "").replace(")", "")
    except:
      reviews = None

    source = result.select_one('.zPEcBd.LnPkof').text.strip()

    print(f'{title}\n{link}\n{ad_link}\n{price}\n{rating}\n{reviews}\n{source}\n')

Using Google Inline Shopping API

SerpApi is a paid API with a free plan.

The main difference here is that it already supports different Google Inline Shopping results that might appear on top/right parts of the page (see example outputs), besides bypassing Google's blocks if they appears.

import json
from serpapi import GoogleSearch

params = {
  "api_key": "YOUR_API_KEY",
  "engine": "google",
  "q": "buy trampoline", # try to use different query to get right side shopping results
}

search = GoogleSearch(params)
results = search.get_dict()

for result in results['shopping_results']:
    print(json.dumps(result, indent=2, ensure_ascii=False))
