Web scraping Google Play App Info with Nodejs

What will be scraped

what

📌Note: You can use official the Google Play Developer API which has a default limit of 200,000 requests per day for retrieving the list of reviews and individual reviews.

Also, you can use a complete third-party Google Play Store App scraping solution google-play-scraper. Third-party solutions are usually used to break the quota limit.

This blog post is meant to give an idea and step-by-step examples of how to scrape Google Play Store App using Cheerio to create something on your own.

Full code

If you don't need an explanation, have a look at the full code example in the online IDE

const cheerio = require("cheerio");
const axios = require("axios");

const AXIOS_OPTIONS = {
  headers: {
    "User-Agent": "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/101.0.4951.64 Safari/537.36",
  }, // adding the User-Agent header as one way to prevent the request from being blocked
  params: {
    id: "com.discord", // Parameter defines the ID of a product you want to get the results for
    hl: "en", // Parameter defines the language to use for the Google search
    gl: "us", // parameter defines the country to use for the Google search
  },
};

function getAppInfo() {
  return axios.get(`https://play.google.com/store/apps/details`, AXIOS_OPTIONS).then(function ({ data }) {
    let $ = cheerio.load(data);

    return {

Preparation

First, we need to create a Node.js* project and add npm packages cheerio to parse parts of the HTML markup, and axios to make a request to a website.

To do this, in the directory with our project, open the command line and enter:

$ npm init -y
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And then:

$ npm i cheerio axios
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

*If you don't have Node.js installed, you can download it from nodejs.org and follow the installation documentation.

Process

First of all, we need to extract data from HTML elements. The process of getting the right CSS selectors is fairly easy via SelectorGadget Chrome extension which able us to grab CSS selectors by clicking on the desired element in the browser. However, it is not always working perfectly, especially when the website is heavily used by JavaScript.

We have a dedicated web Scraping with CSS Selectors blog post at SerpApi if you want to know a little bit more about them.

The Gif below illustrates the approach of selecting different parts of the results.

how

Code explanation

Declare constants from cheerio and axios libraries:

const cheerio = require("cheerio");
const axios = require("axios");
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, we write a request options: HTTP headers with User-Agent (is used to act as a "real" user visit. Default axios request user-agent is axios/<axios_version> so websites understand that it's a script that sends a request and might block it. Check what's your user-agent), and the necessary parameters for making a request:

const AXIOS_OPTIONS = {
  headers: {
    "User-Agent": "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/101.0.4951.64 Safari/537.36",
  }, // adding the User-Agent header as one way to prevent the request from being blocked
  params: {
    id: "com.discord", // Parameter defines the ID of a product you want to get the results for
    hl: "en", // Parameter defines the language to use for the Google search
    gl: "us", // parameter defines the country to use for the Google search
  },
};
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, we write a function that makes the request and returns the received data. We received the response from axios request that has data key that we destructured and parse it with cheerio:

function getAppInfo() {
  return axios.get(`https://play.google.com/store/apps/details`, AXIOS_OPTIONS).then(function ({ data }) {
    let $ = cheerio.load(data);
    ...
  })
}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, we need to get the different parts of the page using next methods:

First, we get main product information:

productInfo: {
  title: $(".Fd93Bb")?.text().trim(),
  authors: Array.from($(".Vbfug")).map((el) => ({
    name: $(el).find("a > span")?.text().trim(),
    link: `https://play.google.com${$(el).find("a")?.attr("href")}`,
  })),
  extensions: Array.from($(".UIuSk")).map((el) => $(el)?.text().trim().replaceAll(" · ", "")),
  rating: parseFloat($(".TT9eCd")?.text().trim()) || "No rating",
  reviews: $(".wVqUob:first-child .g1rdde")?.text().trim(),
  contentRating: {
    text: $(".wVqUob:last-child .g1rdde > span")?.text().trim(),
    thumbnail: $(".wVqUob:last-child .ClM7O > img")?.attr("srcset")?.slice(0, -3),
  },
  downloads: $(".wVqUob:nth-child(2) .ClM7O")?.text().trim(),
  thumbnail: $(".l8YSdd > img")?.attr("srcset")?.slice(0, -3),
  offers: {
    text: $(".VAgTTd button")?.attr("aria-label"),
    link: $(".VAgTTd button meta[itemprop='url']")?.attr("content"),
    price: $(".VAgTTd button meta[itemprop='price']")?.attr("content"),
  },
},
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, we get video, images and description info:

media: {
  video: {
    thumbnail: $(".oiEt0d")?.attr("src"),
    link: $(".IZOk1 button")?.attr("data-trailer-url"),
  },
  images: Array.from($(".ULeU3b img")).map((el) => $(el)?.attr("srcset")?.slice(0, -3)),
},
aboutThisApp: {
  snippet: $(".bARER")?.text().trim(),
},
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, bages and categories info:

badges: Array.from($(".Uc6QCc > div > button")).map((el) => ({
  name: $(el).find("span")?.text().trim(),
})),
categories: Array.from($(".Uc6QCc > div > div")).map((el) => {
  const link = `https://play.google.com${$(el).find(" a")?.attr("href")}`;
  const categoryId = link.slice(link.indexOf("category/") + 9);
  return {
    name: $(el).find("span")?.text().trim(),
    link,
    categoryId,
  };
}),
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, we get when the app was updated, what's new, and data safety info:

updatedOn: $(".TKjAsc .xg1aie")?.text().trim(),
dataSafety: Array.from($(".wGcURe")).map((el) => {
  const subtext = $(el).find(".jECfAf")?.text().trim() || "No subtext";
  return {
    text: $(el)?.text().trim().replace(subtext, ""),
    subtext,
    link: $(el).find(".jECfAf a")?.attr("href") || "No link",
  };
}),
whatsNew: {
  snippet: $("c-wiz[jsrenderer='q8s33d'] .SfzRHd")?.text().trim(),
},
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, user reviews:

reviews: Array.from($(".EGFGHd")).map((el) => ({
  title: $(el).find(".X5PpBb")?.text().trim(),
  avatar: $(el).find(".gSGphe > img")?.attr("srcset")?.slice(0, -3),
  rating: parseInt($(el).find(".Jx4nYe > div")?.attr("aria-label")?.slice(6)),
  snippet: $(el).find(".h3YV2d")?.text().trim(),
  likes: parseInt($(el).find(".AJTPZc")?.text().trim()),
  date: $(el).find(".bp9Aid")?.text().trim(),
  response: $(el).find(".ocpBU .I6j64d")?.text().trim()
    ? {
        title: $(el).find(".ocpBU .I6j64d")?.text().trim(),
        snippet: $(el).find(".ocpBU .ras4vb")?.text().trim(),
        date: $(el).find(".ocpBU .I9Jtec")?.text().trim(),
      }
    : "No response",
})),
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, developer contact:

developerContact: {
  website: $("c-wiz[jsrenderer='Grlxwe'] .SfzRHd .KC1dQ:nth-child(1) .Si6A0c")?.attr("href"),
  email: $("c-wiz[jsrenderer='Grlxwe'] .SfzRHd .KC1dQ:nth-child(2) .Si6A0c")?.attr("href").replace("mailto:", ""),
  address: $(Array.from($("c-wiz[jsrenderer='Grlxwe'] .SfzRHd .KC1dQ .xFVDSb")).find((el) => $(el)?.text().trim() === "Address"))
    .parent()
    .find(".pSEeg")
    ?.text()
    .trim(),
  privacyPolicy: $("c-wiz[jsrenderer='Grlxwe'] .SfzRHd .KC1dQ:last-child .Si6A0c")?.attr("href"),
},
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And finally, similar apps:

similarApps: Array.from($("c-wiz[jsrenderer='G2gJT'] .HcyOxe")).map((block) => ({
  categoryTitle: $(block).find(".cswwxf h2")?.text().trim(),
  seeMoreLink: `https://play.google.com${$(block).find(".cswwxf a")?.attr("href")}`,
  items: Array.from($(block).find(".fUtUMc")).map((app) => {
    const link = `https://play.google.com${$(app).find(".Si6A0c")?.attr("href")}`;
    const appId = link.slice(link.indexOf("?id=") + 4);
    return {
      title: $(app).find(".DdYX5")?.text().trim(),
      link,
      developer: $(app).find(".wMUdtb")?.text().trim(),
      rating: parseFloat($(app).find(".w2kbF")?.text().trim()) || "No rating",
      thumbnail: $(app).find(".T75of")?.attr("srcset")?.slice(0, -3),
      appId,
    };
  }),
})),
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now we can launch our parser:

$ node YOUR_FILE_NAME # YOUR_FILE_NAME is the name of your .js file
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Using Google Play Product API from SerpApi

This section is to show the comparison between the DIY solution and our solution.

The biggest difference is that you don't need to create the parser from scratch and maintain it.

There's also a chance that the request might be blocked at some point from Google, we handle it on our backend so there's no need to figure out how to do it yourself or figure out which CAPTCHA, proxy provider to use.

First, we need to install google-search-results-nodejs:

npm i google-search-results-nodejs
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Here's the full code example, if you don't need an explanation:

const SerpApi = require("google-search-results-nodejs");
const search = new SerpApi.GoogleSearch(process.env.API_KEY); //your API key from serpapi.com

const params = {
  engine: "google_play_product", // search engine
  gl: "us", // parameter defines the country to use for the Google search

Code explanation

First, we need to declare SerpApi from google-search-results-nodejs library and define new search instance with your API key from SerpApi:

const SerpApi = require("google-search-results-nodejs");
const search = new SerpApi.GoogleSearch(API_KEY);
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, we write the necessary parameters for making a request:

const params = {
  engine: "google_play_product", // search engine
  gl: "us", // parameter defines the country to use for the Google search
  hl: "en", // parameter defines the language to use for the Google search
  store: "apps", // parameter defines the type of Google Play store
  product_id: "com.discord", // Parameter defines the ID of a product you want to get the results for.
};
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Next, we wrap the search method from the SerpApi library in a promise to further work with the search results:

const getJson = () => {
  return new Promise((resolve) => {
    search.json(params, resolve);
  });
};
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

And finally, we declare the function getResult that gets data from the page and return it:

const getResults = async () => {
  ...
};
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

In this function, we get json with results, then we need to destructure and then return all that we need from received json:

const json = await getJson();
const { product_info, media, about_this_app, badges, categories, updated_on, data_safety, what_s_new, reviews, developer_contact, similar_results } =
  json;
return {
  product_info,
  media,
  about_this_app,
  badges,
  categories,
  updated_on,
  data_safety,
  what_s_new,
  reviews,
  developer_contact,
  similar_results,
};
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

After, we run the getResults function and print all the received information in the console with the console.dir method, which allows you to use an object with the necessary parameters to change default output options:

getResults().then((result) => console.dir(result, { depth: null }));
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
