    Hi guys,


    Is there any service or software out there that will scrape Google Adwords PPC ads?


    I have a service I would like to offer businesses who are currently running Adwords, but it would be very tedious trying to do the research manually.


    Ideally I would be able to automate it so that I got a list of:


    #1 List business name of company
    #2 List landing page URL of their adwords ad(s)
    #3 Approximate the average CPC for their keywords
    #4 (Optional) Some way to estimate their monthly spend on adwords


    The top 3 are whats most important for me to really be able to efficiently market my service.


    Is there anything out there for this?


    Thanks very much!

    I guess the paid option of ispionage might help you here, but it wont give you the full data you need.

    Try looking for different ad-spy tools, if they don't work, I guess you will need a custom bot created.

    Thank you for the suggestion of ispionage. I was really hoping there would be something out there that would already do this. I will check out your recommendation, maybe it can get me part of the way there!

    Will be selling optimised landing pages to businesses who right now are sending paid traffic to their website (losing out on conversions).

    Nice. To collect emails?
    Look if they have responsive design or mobile website too. I get angry many times when I acces a website from my mobile device and its not mobile optimised.

    To collect emails, or to drive phone calls. It depends on what action the business wants the customer to take. Yes, mobile optimised is a big part of it too, but even if they already have a mobile optimised website -- sending them to your home page etc is still not good enough. It needs to be mobile optimised, but also focus on getting the visitor to take the required action.

    This is at least what I would like to focus on. Good that you brought up mobile optimised, because that is a big part of it, too.

    This looks exactly like what I may need. I will look at it more a bit later when I have some time but it looks promising! Thank you!

    Unfortunately Spyfu only has leads it seems for US/UK but not AUS?

    I was mostly looking for something where I can enter in a country, state and perhaps a niche keyword and then have it return results for all ads showing for those conditions. I am thinking maybe nothing exists for that.

    Alternatively, you can just outsource this work on odesk/elance just to get started. It shouldn't too expensive, as I don't quite see any special skills needed for this.

    I will have to start off doing this manually. If it works out to be a good idea for prospecting and getting clients, I'll probably take on someone from oDesk once I know the concept is working. Valid point.
