I am trying to parse a list of IG links from a google sheet via the Bardeen Instagram scraper (and also my own) to enrich the rows with data like: posts, followers, following.
Watched and tried this video:
Scraping from an active tab works for me.
Next was this video:
Tried a google sheet with linkedin links, that also works.
Now I tried it with IG links: [Bardeen IG Testing]
Tab Sheet “IG Profiles” is the initial table
Tab Sheet “Result after scraping” is the result.
I put on debugging mode for the steps of the automation, it seems like it already fails to scrape the data for posts, followers, following while scraping data in the background.
The second error is the mismatch of the rows. Since G.Sheet Column “Weblink” and Scrape Data “url” should be the same, meaning the url of the IG profile, I try to match this so the data lands in the corresponding row.
Any ideas why only the url is scraped in the first place and second how to match the rows?
The rows are matching now.
And then I realized, I was using the pure vpn chrome extension, now it parsed at least one IG profiles completely … any known chrome extensions that cause trouble with Bardeen?
I noticed that you don’t have a custom delay set in your background scraper. We usually advise to put a 3-5 second delay so that the page can load before the scraping starts. Not setting a custom delay is one of the reasons why a scraper runs but doesn’t have any results (apart from the URL)
