Phone Numbers From Google Maps (Free Version)

Hi guys,

I’m trying to scrape gym phone numbers from google maps but every page scrape formula I look at, in the phone number column it says the gyms opening hours instead of the phone number. Need help, i’m in Australia, not sure if this affects anything but my contacts from America don’t seem to have this issue.

Your formula’s the exact same as that being used by said contacts from America?

No, for some reason the formula they use doesn’t show up for me

Well, I doubted the problem had anything to do with Australia in the first place.

Do you have any experience editing recipes. including defining selectors for columns?

No I don’t, I just go through the ones that are available in the ‘public’ section but none of them show the phone numbers

I recommend reading the documentation and finding out how to select what you need in your own recipes. Most sites are dead easy to define selectors for.

I don’t understand, you’re recommending i make my own recipe? is it hard?

Not at all!

What’s the site you’re scraping and what do you intend to scrape

Im just trying to scrape a list from google maps. I want to scrape the business name. the address, the phone number & the website for every search result that comes up, i’ve seen other people use google maps recipes that do this, but all of the ones i find don’t scrape the phone number :frowning:

Hi Rastko,

Scraping Google is very doable, but it can also be challenging because it has many different types of layouts and data can vary depending on the searched item. Are you able to send an example URL of the page you are trying to scrape? I can take a look and provide some suggestions.

Actually have a question on this topic.

The recipe only works when phone numbers appear on the left panel.

For instance, if I type “bar”, it does not appear and I can’t scrap

If I type “caviste” (bottle shop in France), there is a phone number and it will scrap (can only attach one picture as it is my first post, but basically, phone number does appear)

Does anyone know how to “force” GMaps to display phone numbers on the left sidebar ?
