This Google Maps scraper lets you collect details like πŸ‘‹ Name, πŸ—‚οΈ Category, 🏷️ Description, ⭐️ Rating, πŸ“‡ Address, πŸ“ž Phone, πŸ–₯️ Website, βž• Plus Code, πŸ”— Share Link, πŸͺ Opening Times, πŸ“ˆ Popular Times and πŸ”– Properties for any place on Google Maps.

❓ What does it do?

This Google Maps scraper lets you collect details for any place on Google Maps. To get the details, you can supply a list of URLs for the places (the "share" link on the Google Maps page), a list of place IDs, or a combination of both.


πŸ’Ύ What data can users scrape from Google Maps?

You can scrape all information for each Google Maps place. This includes:

  • πŸ‘‹ Name
  • πŸ—‚οΈ Category
  • 🏷️ Description
  • ⭐️ Rating
  • πŸ‘ Review Count
  • πŸ“Έ Photo Count
  • πŸ“‡ Address
  • πŸ“ž Phone
  • πŸ–₯️ Website
  • πŸ” Menu Link
  • βž• Plus Code
  • πŸ”— Share Link
  • πŸͺ Opening Times
  • πŸ“ˆ Popular Times
  • πŸ”– Properties

If you don't already have a list of Google Maps URLs to get details for, you can search an area for a particular type of place with the Advanced Google Maps Scraper Manager and automatically trigger this details scraper to get the details for each place found.

To get photos of a place, you can use the Advanced Google Maps Photos Scraper, or to scrape reviews you can use the Advanced Google Maps Reviews Scraper. Both of these can also be triggered to run automatically by the Advanced Google Maps Scraper Manager, in the same way as this details scraper.

πŸ“ Input format

You can supply a URL or a place ID to scrape the details for that place.

NOTE: if you supply both a URL and a place ID for a single place, it may be scraped twice and both results will appear in the dataset. You should try to supply either a URL or a place ID for each place, but not both for the same place.

  • 🎯 Targets
    • πŸ”— Place URLs
    • πŸ†” Place IDs
    • πŸ’Ύ Dataset ID

Each of these options is explained further below:

  • 🎯 Targets
    • You can use a sharing URL for a place or use its Place ID to scrape details. You can supply a list of URLs and Place IDs at the same time and you will get results for all of them.
    • If you are using the the Advanced Google Maps Scraper Manager to find places to scrape, use the integrations tab in the manager actor to trigger this scraper automatically when places are found

🏎️ Speed

Speed is dependent on the memory available to your Actor and the settings you're using.

To help you calculate, each place that you scrape from will produce a summary like the example below (which was run on an Actor with 4,096MB memory):
