Scraping Google Search Results Without Limits
If you would like to fetch results from Google search on your personal computer and browser, Google will eventually block your IP when you exceed a certain number of requests. You’ll need to use different solutions to scrape Google SERP without being banned.
There are two options to scrape Google results without hitting limits:
1. Google Official Search API
Google’s Official API is an interface for developers to access Google’s various services. It provides a way for third-party software to interact with the company’s products and services. It enables developers to access, share, and monetize content from the world’s most popular search engine.

2. Alternative Scraping Service
2.1 Outscraper Google Search Results Scraper
With the Outscraper Google Search Results Scraper, you can scrape the Google SERP without any coding skills. Using Outscraper is very simple and convenient.
Simply make a list of the keywords you want to search for. Write your list of keywords whose results you want to extract into the ‘Queries to search on Google’ box.
Set the parameters (you only need to set three parameters: Pages limit per one query, Language, and finally the Region; if you want, you can also use the UULE parameter) and create your task. That’s it. Outscraper will take care of the rest for you.
You can download your finished results in xlsx format and edit them as you wish.
