Scrape Data From Google

Scraping Google SERPs (search engine result pages) is as straightforward or as complicated as the tools we use. For this tutorial, we’ll be using Scrapy, a web scraping framework designed for Python. Python and Scrapy combine to create a powerful duo that we can use to scrape almost any website.

Scrapy has many useful built-in features that will make scraping Google a walk in the park without compromising any data we would like to scrape.
