What are the limits of scraping reviews from Google Maps?

We recommend using Number of reviews field to limit the number of reviews to scrape. You don't usually need more then 1000 (or less) reviews. Google tends to push reviews with text and pictures to the top so they are usually among the first ones to be scraped. Large number of reviews from one place are also more difficult to scrape and the run can be potentially more expensive.

How many results can you scrape with Google Maps Reviews scraper?

Google Maps Reviews scraper can return thousands results on average. However, you have to keep in mind that scraping 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.

How much will scraping Google Maps Reviews cost you?

When it comes to scraping, it can be challenging to estimate the resources needed to extract data as use cases may vary significantly. That's why the best course of action is to run a test scrape with a small sample of input data and limited output. You’ll get your price per scrape, which you’ll then multiply by the number of scrapes you intend to do.
