4. Easy & safe authentication

This automation will connect to the website on your behalf. The safest and most efficient way for Phantombuster to authenticate as yourself is by using your session cookies.

To make that process as easy as possible you can use Phantombuster's browser extension. It's a 2-click installation.

If you're operating from another browser and/or want to do it manually, here is how to do it.

5a. Simple Mode Specify your search filters from Phantombuster.

In the search text field, simply enter the terms you want to scrape results from on the LinkedIn search engine. For example SpaceX engineer or iOS developer or even CEO! More advanced search queries are also possible using keywords allowed by LinkedIn: OR & AND (see Using Boolean Search) and even school:, company:... (see Using Search Operators).

Below, specify more than search terms: degrees, categories and

5b. Advanced Mode Make multiple searches directly on LinkedIn and use the URLs as an input.

Create a spreadsheet on Google Spreadsheet.

Copy and paste the LinkedIn search URLs and paste them in your spreadsheet. One URL per row, all in column A.

Make this spreadsheet public so Phantombuster can access it.

Paste the spreadsheet's URL to Phantombuster.

You can also append in the search page URL &page=x (x represents a page number) to let know the API where it should start to scrape data in the LinkedIn result.

6. Scrape every results of a big LInkedIn Search

If you want to scrape every results of a big 50 pages search, we recommend you spread that extraction over a few launches. To do so, you can append &page=x (x represents a page number) to a search URL to specify the page it should start at.

Start your automation!

You're all set. Just click "launch" to get your automation started!

Set this LinkedIn automation on repeat

Once your automation's configuration is ready, you can schedule repetitive launches. This will allow you to avoid rate limits, scrape more data and get your automated workflows to spread over days, weeks, even months.

To do so, go to your dashboard and look for your automation's “Settings” button.

Then, select a frequency:

And Save those new settings at the bottom of the page.

Recommendations

👮 LinkedIn limits: Officially, Sales Navigator searches are unlimited. But doing too many searches, too fast, can trigger LinkedIn rate limits.
