Creating Tasks and Parameters
Select Google Services>Maps Reviews service from the left panel and open the Google Maps Reviews Scraper service.
There are 6 essential parameters that should be specified for your tasks.
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 list of business categories on Google Maps:
Choose the category you want to target from the list or write the keyword of your preferred category.
There are 2 different settings that affect your category selection. Google-like queries and Custom categories.
All expressions used in Google Maps can be used as queries.
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.
There are 4 different sorting parameters you can use to get the results you want when creating scraping tasks. Most relevant, Newest, Highest rating, and Lowest rating. The same filtering selections available on Google Maps are available on Outscraper and get the same results.
When you select the Most relevant filter, you will get Google’s featured reviews of selected places.
The Highest rating filter starts to list and fetch the comments from the highest, just like Google Maps. One of the advantages of Outscraper is that you can filter your listing according to the review star limit you want.
As with the highest filter, you can also choose to extract the lowest-rated comments with the lowest rating filter.
3 different parameters can be used to limit your results: Reviews limit per place, Places per query search, and skip.
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 leave a review on Google Maps, sometimes they just give stars without writing a remark. If you are going to create a Google review scraping task because you only need to analyze the comments, you can choose this filter.
