Let’s see how to extracte commenters on Linkedin posts
Here we will see the steps of the execution & the inputs required for this spice.
The whole execution will play around these 7 input points & the total time to execute this will be around 1-2 minutes, depending on the number of posts you want to extract commenters from. Here’s what each of the input points means:
1. Linkedin Session Cookie: Linkedin uses this piece of information to ensure it’s really you who’s using the Linkedin profile.
2. Post URL: Input the profile URL here if you want to scrape data of just one post. If you have more than one post, upload the CSV or link a Google Sheet.
3. Remove Duplicate Profiles: Check this option to remove any profiles of people who have commented more than once. If you’re looking for insights/reviews, we’d recommend keeping this option unchecked.
4. Number of Commenters: Specify how many profiles you want to scrape. Remember, you can scrape details of only 40 profiles per day.
5. Upload CSV or Google Sheet: You can upload a CSV of Google Sheet if you have a lot of posts to extract from. Be sure to execute this with the daily limit in mind.
6. Extract Commenters: Clicking on this button will immediately start the execution.
7. Schedule this spice: You can choose to schedule this spice to regularly extract profiles from posts.
Note: The execution happens on the cloud so you don’t have to keep the browser open for scheduled executions. But when you run the spice on the cloud, you will have to have a proxy setup. When you run on a proxy, the Linkedin algorithm will not raise any concerns against the usage of the account.
Now that you know about input points, let’s take a look at the individual steps of the execution.
How to extract interested potential leads from posts using TexAu?
Step 1: Create TexAu account & authenticate Linkedin Session cookie
Once your account is set up and you have completed the onboarding, visit the Scrape a Linkedin profile automation page. TexAu acts on your behalf on LinkedIn to run this automation. TexAu is the safest automation platform on the web, it uses your LinkedIn session cookie to authenticate as you to run this automation. We never ask for your login credentials. To make filling session cookies easier, you can use the TexAu Chrome extension. This process only requires 2 clicks.
- Download TexAu Extension for Chrome here: TexAu Chrome Extension [Used and loved by over 4000+ customers]
- Refresh your automation page and click on the Get Cookie button.
In case if you are not using Google Chrome, check this guide on how to get cookies manually from your browser. We are working hard to bring our extension to all the major browsers very soon.
Step 2: Enter post URL you want to extract Commenters posts from
This can be any post, article, or document on Linkedin. The automation will extract all the commenters from that post. You can even upload a CSV or link a Google Sheet if you have multiple posts to extract commenters from.
Step 3: Upload the CSV or paste Google sheet URL (only if you have multiple people to extract commenters from)
If you have a CSV, simply upload it from your PC. If you have a Google Sheet, there are some extra steps.
- First paste the Google sheet’s URL.
- Either get the Linkedin session cookie manually or use our chrome extension to do it with the click of a button. You can also create variables to avoid entering Linkedin session cookies again & again. Here’s a guide to creating variables on TexAu.
- Input the column containing the post URLs. Make sure you choose the right one for successful execution.
- If you have purchased a proxy (you will have to add a proxy to your account) make sure you toggle the option. Furthermore, if you’re executing on a desktop, you don’t have to worry about the proxy.
For the final touch, make sure you have set the sheet as public (as shown below) so the TexAu can access it.
Step 3: Start execution or schedule the automation
Clicking on “Extract Commenters” will immediately start the execution. Unless you have multiple posts to extract comments from, it would hardly take a minute to execute this script.
Scheduling the automation will give you additional points to control the execution. You can choose specific days of the week or month, specific times daily. You can even set a specific start & end time of the execution.
The advantage of automating the whole process is that you don’t have to actively sit in front of your PC while TexAu does its job. But make sure you have a proxy if you choose to run the spice on our cloud servers.
Step 4: Download execution results to your local PC
Once you click on “Extract Commenters” you will see an execution window at the bottom of your screen, that would look as shown below:
