Google Maps Scraping in Pure GO

It is necessary to have a good understanding of coding, browser emulation, proxies, and reCAPTCHA solver in order to scrape Google Maps. Furthermore, you must ensure that you are prepared to deal with any modifications that Google may make to the dynamic information on its website.

You must first utilize browser emulation to simulate the behavior of a valid user. One option is to use Selenium or another browser emulator.

You will need to make use of proxies to protect the IP address associated with your office or home. That way, you can request webpages from the IP addresses of other individuals.

Regardless of the collection of tools, if you have some good usage, Google might show you reCAPTCHA and connect it to some of your IPs. This could happen even if you have a significant amount of traffic. You can add a reCAPTCHA solver to your system if you do not wish to alter your IPs each time you encounter a reCAPTCHA.

Also, Google’s content may change. You can do it by running daily tests.

The scraper can be produced and maintained, but gradually. Learn how to scrape Google Maps using Python and Selenium with this tutorial: How to Scrape Google Maps With Python and Selenium.
