SERP Keyword Scraper Plugin for Chrome & Firefox

Keyword research is an ongoing SEO-task, and search results are one of the best spots to look for new ideas. Besides related searches, search engines like Google or Bing nowadays display popular questions and search refinements.

We wanted to make keyword research in search results as simple as possible and created a free plugin for Chrome and Firefox. It allows you to extract keywords from Google and Bing with just one click.

The SERP Keyword Scraper in action

Extracting relevant keywords is super simple:

  1. Perform your search on Google or Bing
  2. Click the plugin logo (or use the keyboard shortcut! Windows: CTRL + . | Mac: CMD + .)
  3. Paste the extracted keywords into a spreadsheet or another tool you like

Where can I get the keyword research plugin?

The plugin is available for Chrome and for Firefox. Get your copy from the official extension websites linked below!

How to use the plugin?

We offer two ways to extract keywords from search result pages:

  1. Use the keyboard shortcut CTRL + Period (.) on Windows (MAC: CMD + .) OR
  2. Click on the plugin logo in your browser

The keywords will be saved in your clipboard. Simply switch to a tool of your choice and paste the data in there. We recommend pasting the data into a spreadsheet.

Keep in mind that every time you copy something else, the clipboard content gets overwritten! So paste your data in the storage of your choice.

Which search engines are supported?

The plugin currently supports

  • Google search
  • Google image search
  • Google shopping
  • Bing search

and will extract

  • search suggest
  • related searches
  • user questions
  • search refinements
  • FAQ markup questions
  • image entities
  • search filters

Anything else worth extracting? We are happy to get your feedback (scroll down)!

Note: Extracting search suggests („Google suggest“) is only possible when your mouse cursor activated the search bar. Otherwise, the suggests aren’t present in the source code – and the plugin can’t catch them. So move your mouse in the search bar and click into it. No need to start typing, but the search suggests must be visible. Then click the plugin logo or use the keyboard shortcut.

  1. It does not work for me 🙁 The download was successful, but I cannot grab / copy any data. Is there any specific configuration required to turn off / on?

    1. Hey Johanna,

      What browser and operating system are you using? It might be the case that your operating system is blocking the notification – this depends on your personal settings for notifications. The extraction will nevertheless be successful – just open a spreadheet and paste the data in there.

      Another idea: In case of Chrome, you might need to „pin“ the extension. Click on the puzzle icon and „activate“ the plugin. This might help.

      I will send you an email as well.


  2. also ich komm mit der Beschreibung nicht zurecht …da tut sich nichts …vielleicht sollte die Benutzung von jemanden geschrieben werden der das Addon noch nie vorher gesehen bzw. oder mit der Handhabung etwas zu tun hatte..

    1. Hallo Rainer,

      an welcher Stelle hakt es bei dir mit der Installation? Es sind nur wenige Schritte: Das Plugin von der Chrome oder Mozilla Website installieren und schon ist es einsatzbereit. Einfach zu z.B. Google gehen, deine Suchanfrage eingeben und die Keywords durch einen Klick auf das Logo des Plugins oder über STRG + . (bzw. CMD + . auf Mac) extrahieren.

      Viele Grüße

  3. Hi Stephan,

    Danke für das Addon. Meine Frage: Könnte man damit eventuell im Zusammenspiel mit einem Chromeplugin wie gInfinity, per Endlos-Scrolling noch mehr Daten scrapen? Hatte es kurz getestet und schien aktuell leider nicht zu funktionieren.


    1. Hi Brandon,

      It works like a charm for me. What browser are you running? Have you tried „If the plugin works in other browsers on your device, you could try setting up a new browser profile for testing purposes.“?
