Returns a list of usernames and links to profiles of people who posted Instagram images under a certain hashtag.
Have a look at the sample output data file for an example.
Watch the video with me explaining how the bot works in detail:
How it works
- 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
- Specify a hashtag (using "#hashtag" format)
- Press the "Start Bot" button
That's it. The bot will start working and will return list of users as a spreadsheet once it's done scraping. It will any skip duplicates (for example if a user posted several times under a certain hashtag). 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 user data from multiple hashtags, launch 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.
The bot will return the following fields:
- User name
- Link to user profile
You can then view the data online or download it as an Excel, CSV or a JSON file. If you have any comments or suggestions about the bot – please drop a review in the comment section below 👇
