Why scrape Google Shopping?

Google Shopping is a great source of data for basically any industry. From clothes to tech, it's a great place to extract data for market research and price monitoring.

Here are just some of the ways you could use that data:

  • Market Research: See what products are on the market, and analyze them to discover how to market your own products. Find out who your competitors are and make sure there is a market for your product.
  • Price Monitoring: Find the perfect deal by regularly extracting prices. See how your competitors how pricing their products and create your own winning dynamic pricing strategy.
  • Product Research: If you're waiting for a product to be available again, scrape regularly to be the first to know as soon as you can purchase it, or get insights into what's on the market so you can develop your own products.

Need to find product pairs between Google and another online shop?

Use the AI Product Matcher馃敆. This AI model allows you to compare items from different web stores, identifying exact matches and comparing real-time data obtained via web scraping.

With the AI Product Matcher, you can use scraped product data to monitor product matches across the industry, implement dynamic pricing for your website, replace or complement manual mapping, and obtain realistic estimates against your competition for upcoming promo campaigns. Most importantly, it is relatively easy to get started with (just follow this guide) and can match thousands of product pairs.

  • search: (Optional) (String) Keyword that you want to search on Google Shopping.

  • startUrls: (Optional) (Array) List of Google Shopping URLs. You should only provide only search pages from Google Shopping.

  • includeComparisonPrices: (Optional) (Boolean) This option will enable the actor to retrieve all the possible prices from other merchants with comparison.

  • includeReviews: (Optional) (Boolean) This will add all the reviews that Google Shopping provides into the detail objects. Please keep in mind that the time and resources the actor uses will increase proportionally by the number of reviews.

  • maxItemsPerQuery: (Optional) (Number) You can limit scraped products per each query. This should be useful when you search through the big lists.

  • maxItems: (Optional) (Number) You can limit scraped products. This should be useful when you search through the big lists or search results.

  • proxy: (Required) (Proxy Object) Proxy configuration.

This solution requires the use of Proxy servers, either your own proxy servers or you can use Apify Proxy.

Tip

When you want to scrape over a specific listing URL, just copy and paste the link as one of the startUrl.

Compute Unit Consumption

The actor is optimized to run blazing fast and scrape many listings as possible. Therefore, it forefronts all listing detail requests. If the actor doesn't block very often it'll scrape 100 listings in 2 minutes with ~0.05-0.1 compute units.

Tips for scraping Google Shopping

Here's a tip for scraping Google Shopping. If you want to filter your search by product details (price range, color, model, etc), head over to the Google Shopping website in a separate browser window, type your keyboard into the search bar, and toggle with the filters. Once you are done, copy the web page's URL, and paste it into the scraper's input field!

Google Shopping Scraper Input example

{ "queries": [ "iPhone" ], "maxItems":80, "countryCode": "us", "includeComparisonPrices":true "startUrls":[ "https://www.google.com/search?q=android&source=lnms&tbm=shop&tbs=vw:l" ], "proxy":{ "useApifyProxy":true, "apifyProxyGroups":[ "GOOGLE_SERP" ] } }

During the Run

During the run, the actor will output messages letting you know what is going on. Each message always contains a short label specifying which page from the provided list is currently specified. When items are loaded from the page, you should see a message about this event with a loaded item count and total item count for each page.

If you provide incorrect input to the actor, it will immediately stop with a failure state and output an explanation of what is wrong.

Google Shopping Export

During the run, the actor stores results into a dataset. Each item is a separate item in the dataset.

You can manage the results in any language (Python, PHP, Node JS/NPM). See the FAQ or our API reference to learn more about getting results from this Google Shopping actor.
