    Hey!
    How do you check the followers count of several accounts at once? (without using Followliker or a scraper program).

    I used to do it with an importxml Google Spreadsheet formula but lately it hasn't been working very well (takes ages).

    Any recommendations?

    Hmm, why you don't want to use a scraper?

    Just cause it takes too long. Saving as a csv, uploading the list, exporting results, etc...
    I'm looking for a tool where I can just paste from 10 to 50 urls (I'd use FL if it'd be more) and it'd give me back a table with the followers count.
    I'm using screaming frog extracting with xpath from https://web.stagram.com/username at the moment but it'd be great if someone shares a quicker way!

    Thanks buddy! Not exactly what I'm looking for at this moment but I have clients from time to time who require massive scrapes. I'll keep your bot into account. Does it get the entire bio text (I see an email column there).

    To be honest I do it with this npm module: https://github.com/huttarichard/instagram-private-api

    You doo need to know a little bit of coding and NodeJS

    Best,

    Right now it doesn't save the bio, but that can be added.
