Categories

Outscraper scrapes businesses in specified categories. You can also search keywords as category identifiers with Outscraper, but general categories are useful for giving ideas about your target companies.

Check out the alphabetical list of business categories on Google Maps:

Google Maps Business Categories

Choose the category you want to target from the list or write the keyword you want yourself.

There are 2 different settings that affect your category selection. Google-like queries and Custom categories.

Google-like queries:

All expressions used in Google Maps can be used as a query

Locations

Select any country and city from the drop-down list. Outscraper searches only within the location you choose. Select your target country first.

After selecting the country, set your state and city choices and narrow down your regions for the results.

Sorting

There are 4 different sorting parameters you can use to get the results you want while creating scraping tasks. Most relevant, Newest, Highest rating, Lowest rating.

The same filtering selections available on Google Maps are available on Outscraper. You will get the same results as the choices you make here in the Outscraper result file.

Most Relevant:

When you select most relevant filter, you will get Google’s featured reviews of selected places.

Get the oldest and newest reviews on the dates you specify by selecting the newest filter. Dates can be set for both oldest reviews and newest reviews. 

The Highest rating filter starts to list and fecth the comments from the highest, just like Google Maps. One of the advantages of Outscraper is that you can filter your listing according to a review star limit you want.

Lowest rating:

As with the highest filter, you can also crawl the lowest-rated comments with the lowest rating filter.

Limits

3 different parameters can be used to limit your results: Reviews limit per one place, Places per one query search and Skip

Advanced Parameters

Language:

The keywords you aim to scrape may have a special meaning in a different language. For this reason, when it is desired to search for that language, it is appropriate to select that language in the language section of the advanced parameters section.

Ignore reviews without text:

When people review on Google Maps, sometimes they just give stars and don’t leave a comment. If you are going to create a scrape task because you need to analyze the comments, you can choose this filter.

Tags & Extensions

Give any tag you want to your tasks and specify the extension of the result file in a way that suits you.

Complete Setting Parameters

Set all your parameters and review for the last time. If all parameters are ok, click the ‘Scraper reviews’ button.
