SE::Yahoo - Yahoo Search Results Scraper



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

A-Parser functionality allows you to save Yahoo scraper parsing settings for future use (presets), set a parsing schedule, and much more. You can use automatic query multiplication, substitution of subqueries from files, iteration 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 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
  • List of related keywords (Related keywords)
  • Ad results
Collected data


  • Support for all Yahoo search operators (site:, ip:, etc.)
  • Scraps the maximum number of results Yahoo returns - 50 pages of 100 items each in the results
  • Can automatically scrape more than 1000 results per query - by adding additional characters (option Parse all results)
  • Ability to deeply scrape by related keywords (Parse related to level)
  • Ability to search for related keywords
  • Supports specifying the time of the results

Use Cases

  • Collecting link databases - for A-Poster, XRumer, AllSubmitter, etc.
  • Competition assessment for keywords
  • Searching for backlinks (mentions) of websites
  • Checking website indexing
  • Searching for websites on the same IP address
  • Searching for vulnerable websites
  • Any other scenarios involving scraping Yahoo in one way or another


As queries, you need to specify search phrases, just as if you were entering them directly into the Yahoo search form, for example:

окна Москва

Query Substitutions

You can use built-in macros for query multiplication, 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 a character iteration 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 in total will give 4 x 475254 = 1901016 search queries, an impressive figure, but this is not a problem for A-Parser. At a speed of 2000 queries per minute, such a 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:
