Our scraper works with keywords, not with categories.  It works like a human would:

  1. Type a search in the google maps search engine.
  2. Go through the results list that google maps displays and extract the data from each one of them.
  • Note that Google Maps works like this: if you go to https://www.google.com/maps?hl=en in Chrome and do the same search as our software you’ll see that other categories also appear when you flip through several pages (especially in the latest results).

If you have a list in CSV or Excel format with all the localities in your country and you want it to appear in Google Maps Scraper, you only have to contact us so that you can send us these data.
