What Is A LinkedIn Scraper?

Okay, let's break this down simply. A LinkedIn Scraper is a tool that helps you get specific information from LinkedIn without you having to manually go through hundreds of LinkedIn profiles and copy pasting data from LinkedIn into an excel spreadsheet.

There are different types of scrapers depending on what data you want to extract from LinkedIn. 

Linkedin Email Scraper

These tools help you scrape email addresses of your target people from LinkedIn. 

They either scrape it from publicly available email addresses from the profile section or tap into third party databases.
Examples from our list: Salesrobot, Wiza, Evaboot, Findymail, LeadIQ

Linkedin Profile Scraper

These tools help you scrape profile information such as their full names, company names, university, job title, LinkedIn headline, profile picture, location, follower count, work experience, and other detailed information present in their profile.

Examples from our list: Salesrobot, Phantombuster, Proxycurl, Brightdata, Peopledatalabs


Linkedin Sales Navigator Scraper

These tools help you scrape search results from LinkedIn Sales Navigator, which is a paid feature from LinkedIn that lets you search for your ideal customers on LinkedIn using advanced filters.

In this example, I’ve searched for CEOs of small companies (1-10 employees) in the Bay Area who posted on LinkedIn in the last 90 days.

A LinkedIn Sales Navigator search scraper would scrape all the available information such as Full Name, Job Title, Company Name, Location, Time in the role, and Time at the current company.
Examples from our list: Salesrobot, Phantombuster, Dripify, Linked Helper 2, Octopus CRM, Dux Soup, Anypicker

Linkedin Job Scraper

A LinkedIn Job scraper would scrape job listings with a particular title or keyword.
Examples: Brightdata, Phantombuster, Anypicker

Linkedin Post Scraper

Does pretty much what it says on the tin, it scrapes Linkedin posts en-masse or from particular LinkedIn members or posts containing a particular hashtag.
Examples: Salesrobot, Brightdata

Linkedin Search Scraper

This is very similar to LinkedIn Sales Navigator scraper, but instead of scraping Sales Navigator search results, it scrapes LinkedIn search.

Examples include: Salesrobot, Phantombuster, Dripify, Linked Helper 2, Octopus CRM, Dux Soup, Anypicker
It’s important to note that email scrapers also give you some of this information along with their email addresses.

Linkedin Group Scraper

Again, pretty self-explanatory. These tools scrape LinkedIn group members.
Examples: Salesrobot, Phantombuster

3 Types of LinkedIn Data Scrapers

Alright, let's chat about these LinkedIn scrapers. They come in three flavors, and each has its own superpower.

1. Chrome Extensions Based LinkedIn Scrapers:

  • These are simple Chrome browser add-ons that work to scrape data from your LinkedIn account on your computer.
  • You should use them when you need a quick data grab of only a few LinkedIn profiles (for example, if you’re scraping a Sales Navigator search with up to 2500 results )
  • Perfect for simple stuff like Sales Nav search, LinkedIn search, and email scraping based on searches 

Examples include: Anypicker, Evaboot, Findymail, Wiza, LeadIQ, Octopus CRM, and Dux Soup

2. Python-Based LinkedIn Scrapers:

  • You can think of them as tools only to be used by coding wizards with a decent understanding of Python.
  • They are great for complex scraping tasks such as extracting hiring managers from LinkedIn job postings.
  • They are best used when you want to create custom solutions or do big data hauls.

3. Cloud-Based LinkedIn Scrapers

  • They are to be used when Chrome Extension based scrapers just don’t cut it. Let’s say you need to scrape 100 LinkedIn profiles every day. If you use a Chrome extension based scraper to do it, it’ll stop scraping if you forget to leave your computer on! And not to mention that it’ll slow down your computer. In that case, you should consider moving to Cloud based LinkedIn scraper.

  • They are great for when you have an old computer that can’t handle Chrome Extensions and are just more convenient in general.

Examples include: Salesrobot, Phantombuster, Dripify

The key is picking the tool that fits your job. No rocket science here, just smart choices for your use case.

They do the hard work of converting unstructured LinkedIn data into a simple and performant API. 

You can use their API to scrape almost anything on LinkedIn without even using your LinkedIn account.

The only downside to using Proxycurl is that you need to know a little bit of Python to use their APIs and get the data downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet. 

You can also use no code tools like n8n.io and pipedream.com to use this API. 

If you’re somebody who wants to use the Proxycurl API directly in Google Sheets, you can check out their Sapiengraph product.

Primary use case: LinkedIn scraping without using your LinkedIn account

Proxycurl pricing
Source: Proxycurl

Proxycurl has 3 pricing options:

  • Pay-as-you-go pricing: These should be used by people who want to scrape only a few LinkedIn profiles once in a while. For example, if you want to scrape all marketing directors at non profits in NYC to invite them to a particular event, then pay as you go is suited for that. The price per credit varies from $0.018 to $0.1 depending on your volume commitment.
  • Monthly plan: These should be used by businesses with a predictable usage volume every month because these credits are cheaper and they expire. For example, if you’re a sales team, then you need this because you have activity quotas to hit. Price per credit ranges from $0.009 to $0.02 per credit.
  • Enterprise plan: The enterprise plan starts at $2000/mo for a minimum of 18 months of the contract. So if you’re really serious about Linkedin scraping and have $36000 to spare, do consider buying this plan.

4. Brightdata
