How to scrape Google Search Results

Javascript is a vast language that is used in developing many different things nowadays. The one little thing it can do is scrape Google Search Results.

In this tutorial, we will be scraping Google Search Results with Node JS using Unirest and Cheerio as web scraping libraries.

How to scrape Google Search Results 1

Requirements:

To start scraping Google Search Results, we need to install some npm libraries to move forward and prepare our scraper.

  1. Unirest JS
  2. Cheerio JS

To extract our HTML data we will use Unirest JS. And for parsing the HTML data, we will use Cheerio JS.

Target:

How to scrape Google Search Results 2

Process:

The Google Search Results scraping is divided into parts:

  1. Making HTTP request on the target URL to extract the raw HTML data.
  2. Parsing the HTML data to extract the required data.

We will target this URL:

https://www.google.com/search?q=apple+linkedin&gl=us&hl=en

We will make this request by passing the headers to the URL, which in this case is User-Agent.

User-Agent is used to identify the application, operating system, vendor, and version of the requesting user agent, which can save help in making a fake visit to Google by acting as a real user.

You can also rotate User Agents, read more about this in this article: How to fake and rotate User Agents using Python 3

If you want to further safeguard your IP from being blocked by Google, you can use Serpdog's Google Search API which solves all the problems of proxies and CAPTCHAs for a smooth scraping journey.

 unirest
 .get("https://www.google.com/search?q=apple+linkedin&gl=us&hl=en")
 .headers({
 "User-Agent":
 "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/101.0.4951.54 Safari/537.36",
 })
 .proxy("PROXY SERVER URL")

Now, we will search for the required tags from HTML for our title, description, link and displayed link.

How to scrape Google Search Results 3

So, according to this image, the tag for the title is .yuRUbf > a > h3 , for the link is .yuRUbf > a , for the snippet is .g .VwiC3b and for the displayed link is .g .yuRUbf .NJjxre .tjvczx.
Here is our code:

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

    const getOrganicData = () => {
      return unirest
        .get("https://www.google.com/search?q=apple+linkedin&gl=us&hl=en")
        .headers({
          "User-Agent":
            "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/101.0.4951.54 Safari/537.36",
        })
        .then((response) => {
          let $ = cheerio.load(response.body);

          let titles = [];
          let links = [];
          let snippets = [];
          let displayedLinks = [];

          $(".yuRUbf > a > h3").each((i, el) => {
            titles[i] = $(el).text();
          });
          $(".yuRUbf > a").each((i, el) => {
            links[i] = $(el).attr("href");
          });
          $(".g .VwiC3b ").each((i, el) => {
            snippets[i] = $(el).text();
          });
          $(".g .yuRUbf .NJjxre .tjvcx").each((i, el) => {
            displayedLinks[i] = $(el).text();
          });

          const organicResults = [];

          for (let i = 0; i < titles.length; i++) {
            organicResults[i] = {
              title: titles[i],
              links: links[i],
              snippet: snippets[i],
              displayedLink: displayedLinks[i],
            };
          }
          console.log(organicResults)
        });
    };

    getOrganicData();

With Google Search API

If you don't want to code and maintain the scraper in the long run then you can try this Google Search API to scrape Google Search Results. Serpdog APIs also supports all advanced featured snippets like knowledge graph, answer box results, etc.

We also offer 100 free requests on the first sign-up.

 const axios = require('axios');
 axios.get('https://api.serpdog.io/search?api_key=APIKEY&q=coffee&gl=us')
 .then(response => {
  console.log(response.data);
 })
 .catch(error => {
  console.log(error);
 });
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
