Sad to say, but the three Google Search harvesting utilities from Sobolsoft no longer work on Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 9. The utilities are: Google Save Search Results; Google Extract Data & Text; and Excel Import Multiple Google Search Results.
I’m guessing that to use these today one would need to blow the dust off an old Windows Vista PC with something like IE6 or IE7 installed, although the problem might be due to newer versions of Visual Basic runtimes or similar. The utilities don’t run well on Windows XP (I tried one, on an old laptop) because the GUI layouts are truncated in it, vital ‘save’ buttons are unreachable, and the software can’t be re-sized.
Among possible fallback options, none of the Google URL Harvester scripts for Greasemonkey work now. The clunky Outwit Hub still can’t seem to get past Google Search’s URL obfuscation and other clutter, making it fairly useless for the task. SEO software like URLHarvester and Scrapebox doesn’t seem to care about link titles or extracts, just raw URLs and PageRank.
Still working is the basic per-page method of using Multilinks (Firefox) or Linkclump (Chrome), and then my combinatory Excel spreadsheet.
** Update: found a new, free way to do it, that also harvests snippets.
