SE::Ask - American Google search results scraper through


Scraper Overview

Ask search results scraper. Thanks to the Ask scraper, you can get large databases of links ready for further use. You can use queries in the same way as you enter them in the Ask search bar, including search operators (site, inurl, etc.).

A-Parser functionality allows you to save the Ask scraper parsing settings for further use (presets), set up a parsing schedule, and much more. You can use automatic query multiplication, substitution of subqueries from files, enumeration of alphanumeric combinations and lists to obtain the maximum possible number of results.

Saving results is possible in the form and structure you need, thanks to the built-in powerful templating engine Template Toolkit which allows you to apply additional logic to the results and output data in various formats, including JSON, SQL, and CSV.

Collected Data

  • Links, anchors, and snippets from the results
  • Related keywords
Collected data


  • Scrapes the maximum number of results - 10 pages
  • Scrapes up to 100 results of American search results
  • Ability to collect related keywords

Use Cases

  • Collecting link databases - for A-Poster, XRumer, AllSubmitter, etc.
  • Competition assessment for keywords
  • Backlink (mentions) search for sites
  • Site indexing check
  • Vulnerable site search
  • Any other options involving scraping in one way or another


Queries should be specified as search phrases, just as if you were entering them directly into the search form, for example:

окна Москва

Query Substitutions

You can use built-in macros to expand queries. For example, if we want to get a very large database of forums, we will specify several main queries in different languages:


In the query format, we will specify the enumeration of characters from a to zzzz, this method allows for maximum rotation of the search results and obtaining many new unique results:

$query {az:a:zzzz}

This macro will create 475254 additional queries for each original search query, which will give a total of 4 x 475254 = 1901016 search queries, an impressive figure, but not a problem for A-Parser. At a speed of 2000 requests per minute, this task will be processed in just 16 hours.

Using Operators

You can use search operators in the query format, so it will be automatically added to each query in your list:
