SE::Startpage - search results parser


Startpage parser overviewโ€‹

Startpage search results parser. With the Startpage parser, you can retrieve 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.).

The A-Parser functionality allows you to save the parsing settings of the Startpage parser for further use (presets), set a parsing schedule, and much more. You can use automatic query replication, 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 that you need, thanks to the built-in powerful Template Toolkit that allows you to apply additional logic to the results and output data in various formats, including JSON, SQL, and CSV.

List of collected dataโ€‹

  • Links, anchors, and snippets from search results

Data collected by the SE::Startpage parser


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

Use casesโ€‹

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

Query examplesโ€‹

  • Queries are specified as words, phrases, or phrases in the same way as they are entered in the search engine. Example:
ะบั€ะฐัะฝั‹ะต ั€ะพะทั‹

Query substitutionsโ€‹

You can use built-in macros to replicate queries. For example, 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 us to rotate the search results to the maximum and get 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 is not a problem for A-Parser. At a speed of 2000 requests per minute, this task will be processed in just 16 hours.

Using operatorsโ€‹

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