How do I use TikTok Hashtag Scraper?

TikTok Hashtag Scraper is designed to be user-friendly, even for those who have never extracted data from the web before! Here’s how you can use TikTok Hashtag Scraper to extract hashtag data:

  1. Create a free Apify account using your email.
  2. Open TikTok Hashtag Scraper.
  3. Add one or more TikTok hashtags to scrape data.
  4. Click the “Start” button and wait for the data to be extracted.
  5. Download your data in JSON, XML, CSV, Excel, or HTML.

Input

The input for TikTok Hashtag Scraper should be a TikTok hashtag (with or without the # symbol) and a number of videos. If you add more than one hashtag, the results will be split evenly. For instance, if you have 3 hashtags and set the total number of videos to 99, you'll get 33 results per each hashtag.

Click on the input tab for a full explanation of an input example in JSON.

1{
2  "hashtags": [
3    "#booktok",
4    "#tiktoktravel",
5    "#tiktokviral"
6  ],
7  "resultsPerPage": 99
8}

If you set resultsPerPage to 15 or lower, the scraper will be significantly faster because it doesn't need to support scrolling.

Output sample

The results will be wrapped into a dataset which you can always find in the Storage tab. Here's an excerpt from the data you'd get if you apply the input parameters above:

How many results can you scrape with TikTok Hashtag scraper?

TikTok Hashtag scraper can return up to 400-800 results per hashtag on average. This is a hard limit by the TikTok website that cannot be overcome.

However, you have to keep in mind that scraping tiktok.com has many variables to it and may cause the results to fluctuate case by case. There’s no one-size-fits-all-use-cases number. The maximum number of results may vary depending on the complexity of the input, location, and other factors. Some of the most frequent cases are:

  • website gives a different number of results depending on the type/value of the input
  • website has an internal limit that no scraper can cross
  • scraper has a limit that we are working on improving

Therefore, while we regularly run Actor tests to keep the benchmarks in check, the results may also fluctuate without our knowing. The best way to know for sure for your particular use case is to do a test run yourself.

Want to scrape TikTok profiles or comments?

If you want to extract specific TikTok data other than hashtags, you can use one of the specialized scrapers below, each built particularly for the relevant TikTok data scraping case, whether it's profiles, comments, search results, or all data at once:
