    Hi there,

    I'm running seven shout out for shout out campaigns and want to locate the very best blogs in my niche. Blogs that have high quality photos, a similar following size to mine, and similar to better post engagement.

    Is there a tool for Instagram that will scrape usernames and build a list of accounts for me that I can then manually research?

    Example: I want to find IG blogs that have the word luxury in their usernames between 5k and 10k followers.

    I'm having a lot of luck by going to the bigger blogs in my niche, seeing who they're shouting out and which accounts are tagging them in photos. I then follow the trail and find more. I'm guessing that a tool would one, make this more efficient and two, help me scale.

    Cheers,
    Zach

    Not sure what tools you have, but if you want to do this completely free, alternatively you can try a different approach, scrape users who use specific hashtags in their posts, you can do that on iconosquare for instance.

    So let's say you want to search for the luxury tag on iconosquare:

    http://iconosquare.com/viewer.php#/tag/luxury/

    Scroll down on the page as far as you wish (the longer you scroll, the more username you'll have of course) then hit ctrl+a and copy-paste the content of the page into an emtpy notepad++ tab. Remove redundant data from the beginning and from the end, now you'll be left with one username in every other line, so you want to remove the lines (every 2nd line) which don't contain usernames, it's pretty easy to do: hit ctrl+h, put the following into the "Find what" box:
    HTML:
    ([^\n]*\n)[^\n]*\n
    and
    HTML:
    $1
    in the "Replace with" box, select Regular expression for the Search mode, click "Replace All" and voila, every second line is deleted.
    Now you're left with a list of usernames and i assume, you cannot get arsed to check those one by one and that's when Instagram Data Grabber comes in handy, which is shared on the forum by its dev, it is capable of scraping data such as username, uid, number of followers, followings, if verified or not, if private or not, number of uploads, bio, website url and you can export that to an excel sheet.

    FL can't do this I believe. But you can use an external scraper, check my signature if you're looking for one :)
