Goop : Google Search Scraper

Goop can perform google searches without being blocked by the CAPTCHA or hitting any rate limits.

How it works?

Facebook provides a debugger tool for its scraper. Interestingly, Google doesn’t limit the requests made by this debugger (whitelisted?) and hence it can be used to scrap the google search results without being blocked by the CAPTCHA.

Since facebook is involved, a facebook session Cookie must be supplied to the library with each request.

Usage

Installation

pip install goop

Example

from goop import goop

page_1 = goop.search(‘red shoes’, ”)
page_2 = goop.search(‘red_shoes’, ”, page=’1′)
include_omitted_results = goop.search(‘red_shoes’, ”, page=’8′, full=True)

The returned is a dict of following structure

{
“0”: {
“url”: “https://example.com”,
“text”: “Example webpage”,
“summary”: “This is an example webpage whose aim is to demonstrate the usage of …”
},
“1”: {

cli.py demonstrates the usage by performing google searches from the terminal with the following command

python cli.py <query> <number_of_pages>
