    Just wondering how one can use this to the maximum of its abilities.

    I have a list of 200,000 USA locations + 3000 industries and want to perform a Keyword + Location search

    eg [Doctor, Brooklyn,] [Lawyer, Manhattan]

    I wan't to search and get 1000 results each time and save them to my database for me to contact later.

    What kind of setup would I need ? Virtual Machine ? Proxies etc ?

    What are you scraping? names? phone numbers?

    There was a FREE yellow pages scraper in the downloads section, maybe that can be a start.

    I am using places scout and I am scraping quite a bit of info as seen here https://www.placesscout.com/screenshots#!prettyPhoto

    My question is how to use a desktop scraper to scrape google assuming i am scraping a significant amount of data

    Issues i have faced in the past include
    -PC performance slows down because the resources are maxed (eg ran outta ram - i have 8 gigs ram)

    Just wondering what is the ideal setup to scrape a large amount of data from google
