Problems with web scraping


#1

I’m trying to learn how to use UiPath and in this case trying to scrape search results from this page “https://www.yellowpages.com.au/find/real-estate-agents/albury-council-nsw”. However, I can’t get a clean scrape of all search results, including business name, address, phone, website. I get an error saying “Pattern element doesn’t match” or missing/duplicated data as I try and add the correlated data. Please help

Hi,

Can you try using the wizard first and ensure the same pattern is used to identify the object next time when you extract co-related data?
If you still face any issue, please send a screenshot of the error and let us know which pattern you are trying to extract.

Note: Ensure you have a certain pattern to extract data into a data table

Regards,
V

Hi,
Here is the scrapped data.
Looks like Data Scraping doesn’t seems to scrape properly even though following the same pattern.
Is this because of website structure or something to do with UiPath activity.

Thanks for doing that. They are the same results I got. I then tried to start by selecting the title of the first result followed by the title of the last result on the page but when I went to extract the correlated data (address) associated with each it returned the “Pattern element doesn’t match” error. I then went back to the same approach outlined in the training (first and second results) and tried to modify the definition, without success.
