  4. Phone
  5. Number of Reviews
  6. Website
  7. Average Rating

Step 1: Create an account

First, we will create an account in ScrapeHero Marketplace. To sign up go to the link – https://cloud.scrapehero.com/accounts/login/ and create an account with your email address.

Step 2: Input the Details for the Yelp Crawler

The scraper accepts both Yelp Search Results URL and Yelp business details URL.

Search Results URL

Eg: https://www.yelp.com/search?find_desc=Restaurants&find_loc=Boston, MA

Business URLs

Eg: https://www.yelp.com/biz/plastic-surgery-center-pa-portland?sort_by=date_desc

Copy the business details URL or Search Results URL and paste it into the field Yelp Business URLs of the scraper. You can enter as many business details or Yelp Listing URLs as you want as long as each new URL is separated by a new line.

You can also add the number of business details you would like to scrape. If you leave the field blank the scraper will collect all the business details.

Step 3: Run the Scraper

The Yelp crawler page will open up and you will see the option to ‘Gather Data’. Once you have clicked it the scraper will start to run.

After the scrape is complete the ‘Status’ of the crawler will change from ‘Started’ to ‘Finished’. Click on ‘View Data’ to view the scraped data.

Step 4: Download the Data

You can see all the data scraped on this page. To download the scraped data click on ‘Download Data’.

A drop down to select a data format will appear. You can choose between CSV, JSON, and XML formats. After clicking on the data format option, a file will soon be downloaded with all the scraped data.

You can get data delivered to Dropbox if you integrate the crawler account to your Dropbox account. You also have the option to schedule the data if you want to extract Yelp data on a timely basis.
