How to scrape Instagram comments? Video tutorial
Watch me show how the tool works in detail:
Scraping all the comments, how to
- Sign up for SEOBOTS
- Login to Instagram.com in your browser (use your account or create a fake one)
- Download our official Chrome Extension
- Open the bot's setup
- Paste in the link to an Instagram post (e.g. https://www.instagram.com/p/B9FaGYtgLUq/)
- Press the "Start Bot" button
That's it. The bot will start working and will return the comments as a spreadsheet once it's done scraping. You can set up the bot to send you a notification via Email, Slack, Telegram or a JSON post request.
Avoid using the same session_id in parallel – if you need to scrape comments from multiple posts, scrape them one by one.
If you go over Instagram's scraping limitations you may experience delays in data retrieval, however, your account will not get banned or suspended.
