Zillow Scraping Update : How to get all 40 property details per page?

Recently, Zillow updated their website such that the property listings in the search results page are loaded only when the user scrolls down the list (lazy loading). Due to this, if you follow the normal method of data selection, only 9 out of 40 property details per page will be scraped.

To solve this problem and to get all 40 property data per page, please follow the method shown in the following video.

Note that, at the beginning of the video, a placeholder/dummy field is selected. This is important, as this helps WebHarvy to scrape all listings from all pages. To simulate scroll down of the property list, the following JavaScript code is used.

As before, you need to use the scroll functionality of your mouse or trackpad to navigate the list up/down, since clicking on the scroll bar during configuration will bring up the Capture window.

How to Scrape Amazon Product Data with No Code?

In this article we will see how you can easily scrape product details like name, price, ratings/reviews, images, description, ASIN, model number, best seller rank etc. from Amazon product listings.

Just like many other eCommerce websites there is no direct way to download product details from Amazon. Either you will have to manually copy and paste data to a spreadsheet or you should use a web scraping software like WebHarvy to automate the process. Of course, you can code your own little web scraping program to do the job.

The video shown below demonstrates how easy it is to use WebHarvy to scrape data from Amazon. Data selection is done using mouse clicks. The configuration process via the visual interface is very simple. You can start collecting data from thousands of product listings within minutes of installing the software.

As shown in the above video the data scraping workflow has a configuration phase and a mining phase. In the configuration phase we teach WebHarvy what all data items we need to extract and how to navigate the pages of the website.

During configuration, you can click on any item to Capture it. (More Details)

To scrape product details from multiple pages of product listings, click on the link/button to load the next page and set it as the next page link. (More Details)

To follow the product link to load the product details page, click on the product title link and select ‘Follow this link’ option from the resulting Capture window. (More Details)

Since the location of data which you need to extract from product details page can vary from one product to another, it is recommended to use the Capture Following Text method instead of directly clicking on the data.

Once you finish configuration phase, the configuration can be saved as a file. Click the Start Mine button and WebHarvy will start fetching data. The data scraped can be saved to a file or database.

Activation problem? Please update to the latest version (6.2.0.185)

Versions of WebHarvy prior to (and including) 6.2.0.184 will receive an ‘Activation failed due to unknown reason’ error message while trying to unlock using the license key file (for registered users). This issue has been fixed in the latest version of WebHarvy 6.2.0.185 which is currently available for download at https://www.webharvy.com/download.html.

Please contact us in case you have any questions.

WebHarvy 6.2 (Enhanced Proxy Support, Chromium v86, New Browser Setting options)

The following are the changes in this version.

Enhanced proxy support

In this version we have added support for various types of proxies. Earlier, WebHarvy supported only HTTP proxies. Starting from this version the following proxy types are supported.

  • HTTP
  • HTTPS
  • SOCKS4
  • SOCKS4a
  • SOCKS5

In the proxy settings window you can select the type of proxies used as shown below.

New Browser Setting Options

The following 2 new options are added in Browser settings.

  • Disable opening popups
  • Use separate browser engine for mining links

Normally, WebHarvy opens popups or new browser tabs within the same browser view. Though this is the preferred behavior for most websites, in some cases you might want to ignore the popup or new tab pages and stay with the parent page itself. In such cases the Disable opening popups option in Browser settings should be enabled.

When ‘Use separate browser engine for mining links‘ option is enabled WebHarvy uses separate browser engine to mine links which are followed from the starting/listings page. Though this consumes more memory, in case of some websites, it will result in longer mining sessions.

Latest Chromium

We have also updated WebHarvy’s internal browser to the more recent Chromium V86. Chromium is the open source project upon which Google Chrome is based on.

As always, this release also includes minor bug fixes. You may upgrade to this latest version by downloading the latest installer from our website.
