SE::Startpage - search results scraper


Scraper Overview

Startpage search results scraper. With the Startpage 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 Startpage search bar, including search operators (site, inurl, etc.).

A-Parser functionality allows you to save the parsing settings of the Startpage scraper 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 get 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
Collected data


  • Supports country selection, search language, and page language
  • Ability to output anchors, links, and snippets together or separately
  • Ability to specify the number of displayed results
  • Specifying the result size (10 or 20 results)

Use Cases

  • Collecting databases of links, anchors, and snippets
  • Getting a list of sites most frequently mentioned in search engines
  • Any other use cases for obtaining information


Queries are specified as words, phrases, or phrases in the same way as they are entered in the search engine. Example:

красные розы

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 to rotate the search results to the maximum and obtain many new unique results:

$query {az:a:zzzz}

This macro will create 475254 additional queries for each original search query, which in total will give 4 x 475254 = 1901016 search queries, an impressive number, but it's 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 from your list:
