How to scrape TripAdvisor reviews and ratings ?

WebHarvy can be used to scrape data from TripAdvisor website. In this article we will be see how WebHarvy can be configured to scrape reviews and ratings from multiple listings at TripAdvisor website.

By default, TripAdvisor does not display the complete review text in its listings pages. You will have to click a ‘Read more’ link at the end of each partially displayed review, to view the complete review. This can be automated using WebHarvy as shown in the following video.

 

Regular expression strings are used to correctly select the date of review, and also the rating numerical value. The rating value is selected from the HTML source of the rating stars displayed by the website. The RegEx strings used are copied below.
