Yelp Full vs Yelp Full Chrome
Yelp Full will get Name, Address, City, State, Zip, Description, Owner, Reviews, Rating, Phone, Website, Category, Lat, Long, Listing URL. It will not get the hours, amenities, price range, or claimed status.
This scraper is still multi-threaded and is the fastest option.
Yelp Full Chrome will get the above details but also the business hours, claimed/unclaimed, price range, and all of the amenities. These are the “allows dogs”, “has wifi”, “takes reservations”, “good for kids”, etc.
If you need the amenities data, claimed status, or business hours you have to use the new Yelp Full Chrome. This scraper is not multi-threaded and will only use a single Chrome browser opening pages one-by-one. It is much slower than the other Yelp Full. If you do not need this extra data use the old Yelp Full.
Both systems support proxies, including StormProxies which was recommend on the readme page. If you are going to scrape from Yelp using Yelp Full or Yelp Full Chrome you NEED to use a back connect rotating service. These services give you access to tens of thousands of IP address and change your IP each time you connect to them. Yelp will eventually catch and ban your proxies if you are using normal shared proxies. You need as many proxies as possible to scrape them.
