References

SerpScrap is using Chrome headless [3] and lxml [4] to scrape serp results. For raw text contents of fetched URL’s, it is using beautifulsoup4 [5] . SerpScrap also supports PhantomJs [6] ,which is deprecated, a scriptable headless WebKit, which is installed automaticly on the first run (Linux, Windows). The scrapcore was based on GoogleScraper [7] , an outdated project, and has many changes and improvemts.
