In this section, you will need to specify the folder to which the scraped results should be saved. It is recommended that you keep the folder path as short as possible as long paths can cause problems. Ideally, Save the Search Engine Scraper folder either on your desktop or your documents. You can specify any folder but we recommend that you use the folder where your website scraper is saved. Remember, the software is going to use your project name to create a folder with exactly the same name. Your scraping results will be automatically saved in that folder also using the same name as the name of your project. Therefore, make sure to name your project meaningfully so that you can identify your files with ease.


Next, you will need to enter your login details for Facebook and LinkedIn. You should only enter your LinkedIn login details only if you are planning of scraping LinkedIn. It is strongly recommended that you add a Facebook account because the scraper scrapes a Facebook business page for any information that may be missing on the website. Failure to add a Facebook account can significantly reduce your success rate. Generally, Facebook allows users to view a business page without being logged in. However, on many occasions, a user has to be logged in in order to view a Facebook business page. You can buy Facebook PVA accounts online relatively cheaply. The scraper will access Facebook using your local IP address on a single thread using extended delays. This is because Facebook is very strict when it comes to account security and bans accounts very quickly and almost instantly if it detects unusual and non-human activity. You should periodically monitor the Facebook accounts to ensure that they are not banned as this will affect your success rate.


Please note: the Facebook scraper is integral to scraping because the scraper will try to extract data from a website and if some data is missing (which is very frequently the case), it will go to Facebook to grab that extra data. As you can appreciate, the Facebook scraper is vital.


Important: Do not use a VPN as this will cause for your Facebook account to get banned.
