How to scrape Business Details using Google Maps Crawler
Google Maps allow users to search for businesses in any zip code, county, city, state, or country using specific keywords. The Google Maps Crawler allows you to provide a keyword as input and scrape the information returned by Google Maps within minutes. For this post, we searched for the keyword ‘Clinics in Boston’ in Google Maps.
Run the Google Maps Search Results Scraper
Once you provide a list of inputs to the crawler and the number of pages to scrape for each query, you can start the crawler by clicking on ‘Gather Data’. The crawler will take a few minutes to scrape all the results from the Google Maps results page.
View and Download Google Search Results Data
Once the job is completed, you can select View Data and Download Data under the ‘Jobs’ tab. The data is available in Excel, CSV, or JSON format. In addition, you also have the option to schedule the scraper to run on a regular interval, allowing you to check for new businesses in an area using Google Maps.
Here is a sample of what the scraped data would like:
Get Email ID from websites using Contact Detail Crawler
We will be using the Contact Detail Crawler to gather the email IDs from the websites scraped using the Google Maps crawler. The contact detail scraper has been designed to visit the Contact Us and About Us page of the input websites and gather information such as email ID, phone number, and social media links. This crawler will allow us to scrape additional contact information from the business website which may not be available on Google.
Add Website Links as Input and Run the Scraper
The email ID of businesses were not available on Google, hence they were not extracted. To obtain the email IDs, we will input the website URLs scraped using the Google Crawler to the Contact Detail Crawler.
View and Download Contact Detail Data
Once the crawler has finished running, you will be able to download the contact information from these websites in CSV, JSON, and XML formats. Here is a sample of the scraped contact details data:
Importing Google Business Details to HubSpot

Upload Data Files
Once you are logged in, getting the data into HubSpot is simple. The GIF below shows you how to import the data.
Associate Data based on Data Fields
After the data has been imported, you can choose how to associate your data. If the data files share column headers, you can select the common column header.
HubSpot will detect whether the data files have any column headers in common. Here we have chosen the common column as ‘Website’. The common column between your files should also be the unique key for one of your objects. This unique key is used to associate objects based on individual data but only belongs to one object. Here the unique key is ‘Contacts’.
You can then map the data to company properties in HubSpot. You can choose which data fields you would like to map and finally give a name to the import.
The GIF below shows how to associate the files and import the data.
Once the data has been associated you will see the import created in your history. To view the data click on the dropdown on the ‘View’ tab and select ‘Contacts.
You will be able to see the list of contacts with the respective email IDs.
Send Email to Contacts through HubSpot
HubSpot allows you to send marketing emails to individual contacts for marketing purposes. The platform provides a range of templates and email types. The GIF below shows steps on how to send emails to your contacts using HubSpot.
