Easily filter and extract thousands of reviews with data such as title, description, score, reviewer, country, company response, and much more from companies on Trustpilot.com and download them to multiple file formats.

Introduction

Collecting reviews from companies on trustpilot.com becomes a breeze using this product. You can easily filter for the specific reviews you need and save them to Excel, CSV, XML, JSON and other formats. You can also manage the collection of reviews using an API if you are tech savvy.

Use cases

Common use cases for collecting reviews on Trustpilot are to:

  • Display the reviews on your own site
  • Analyze your competitor's reviews to determine why customers are happy or unhappy with the company
  • Analyze how your competitor responds to reviews
  • Determine you target audience and analyze your customers profile
  • Monitor mentions of your brand
  • Find new leads
  • Do market research
  • Do research on behavior of reviewers or amount of fake reviews for example by analysis with machine learning

How to use

Here is an example of the inputs:

Sample inputs

Fill out the following inputs when running the scraper:

[companyWebsite]: Enter the website for the company you want reviews for, such as shopwagandtail.com. To collect reviews for multiple companies you can setup an Apify task. Let me know if you need help with this.

[onlyExtractCompanyInformation]: If "true" is set in the text, the scraper will only collect information about the company on the review page and not collect any reviews. If it is left as "false" it will collect both company information and reviews

[sortBy]: Optional sorting by recent reviews. If you don't specify this, sorting will be done by relevancy.

[filterByStarRating]: Optional filtering by amount of stars for a review. You can specify either 1,2,3,4 or 5. However you can not filter by multiple stars.

[filterBylanguage]: Optional filtering by languauge of reviews. You can only specify only language, such as es, da and so on. By default all languages are selected.

[filterByVerified]: Optional filtering by if reviews have been verified, such as when the company has asked the customer to do a review. Enter "yes" to enable this filter.

[filterByCountry]: Optional filtering by country of the reviewer. You can only specify one country, such as "United States" which would be the ISO country code "US". Casing must match. By default all countries are selected. A list of country codes can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2",

[filterByVerified]: Optional filtering by if reviews have been verified, such as when the company has asked the customer to do a review. Type true to enable this filter.

It is recommended to use proxies for scraping many reviews at a time.

Change timeout setting to facilitate scraping the amount of reviews you need. A default timeout is set for 3600 seconds (1 hour), which is sufficient for scraping all reviews from a small company such as shopwagandtail.com and bigger companies as well. The required timeout depends entirely on your use case and the amount of reviews you will collect. Let me know if you need help estimating this by opening an issue.

Optionally set a different memory amount. By default the scraper runs optimal with a minimimum of 4GB of memory. The performance of the scraper when running with recommended configuration with proxies and 4GB of memory is the ability to scrape approximately on average 3 reviews/second and 5 seconds to process each page. However these are estimates as trustpilot.com can throttle how many pages can be processed at a given speed. Use proxies to circumvent this.

Extracted data (datasets)

These are the datasets that contain results from running the scraper (see explanation in the below section for each dataset):

  • CompanyInformation dataset
  • Reviews dataset

Note that the datasets (company information and company reviews) can be found in your apify.com control panel => Storage => Datasets tab. These datasets are named and will not expire.

The extracted data will be for the CompanyInformation dataset:

  • Official count of reviews on Trustpilot (this number is not accurate as reviews might await processing, be hidden or deleted as per Trustpilot algorithms)
  • Category of the company
  • Company name
  • Page URL of the company on Trustpilot
  • Whether or not the company is verified by Trustpilot
  • Average rating score for all reviews for the company
  • The Business Unit ID that identifies the company the reviews was scraped from
  • When the data about the company was scraped from trustpilot.com

The extracted data will for the reviews dataset be:

  • The title of the review
  • The description/content of the review
  • ID of the review
  • The rating score in stars that the reviewer has given the review
  • The reviewers country
  • The response from the company, if they have written any
  • The name of the reviewer
  • If the review is verified
  • The language of the review, if it is found, otherwise the value will be "unknown language"
  • The date and time of the review
  • URL that points to the page to find the review
  • The page number that a review was scraped from on trustpilot.com
  • When the review was scraped
  • The Business Unit ID that identifies the company the reviews was scraped from

Known limitations

  • Reviews saved to CSV can in some cases look a bit messy. Let me know if you experience that.

  • The Apify API has a maximum timeout of 300 seconds, thus it is advised to create an async API request to initiate the scraping run and then setup a webhook in Apify that will send an API request to your system when the processing is done. Let me know if you need help setting this up.

  • This actor is not intended for extracting data that will be displayed realtime on the frontend to a client because it may take several seconds (minimum of 15 seconds) to minutes to retrieve the data - Extract the data ahead of time and store in your own database to easily present in your frontend. This can be done through the Apify API.
