SE::Yahoo - Yahoo search results parser


Yahoo parser overviewโ€‹

Yahoo search results parser. With the Yahoo parser, 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 Yahoo search bar, including search operators (site, ip, etc.).

A-Parser functionality allows you to save Yahoo parser parsing settings 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 template engine, which allows you to apply additional logic to results and output data in various formats, including JSON, SQL, and CSV.

List of collected dataโ€‹

  • Links, anchors, and snippets from search results
  • List of related keywords

Query examplesโ€‹

  • Queries must be specified as search phrases, just as if you were entering them directly into the Yahoo search bar, for example:
ะพะบะฝะฐ ะœะพัะบะฒะฐ

Query substitutionsโ€‹

You can use built-in macros to replicate queries, for example, we want to get a very large database of forums, specify several basic queries in different languages:


In the query format, we 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 figure, but this 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:
