How to scrape links from a website into a Google Sheet

Scraping links from a listing page into a Google sheet is made simple with this Axiom template. If you don't want to use a Google Sheet, edit the template and tailor it to your requirements using Axiom's no-code bot builder for automating the browser. You could just donwload the links in a CSV.

If you want to scrape links and loop through pages, we recommend you do this in two parts:

  1. First use an Axiom to scrape the links
  2. Then another Axiom to scrape pages, see this template

# Test run

We always recommed doing a test run - click run then check the output from the scraper. In this case in the sheet.

Try the following if your bot is not working. We would also recommend you watch the video to troubleshoot.

  • The links come out as text - Set the selector type to link not text.
  • Selectors fail and the bot stops, try a new selection.
  • The pager is not working - Re-select the next button or try custom selector.
  • No output in the sheet - In 'Write Data to a Google Sheet' check data step is connected.
