Easily turn SERPs into CSV files (100 SERP results at a time)

When prospecting for link building outreach targets, it is useful to turn a Search Engine Result Page (SERP) into a CSV file, so the CSV file can be used as input to various software programs that help you determine if the target URLs and websites are worth pursuing.

This tool does just that, with Google Custom Search Operators, and a browser extension named SEOquake. We hope you find this tool useful.

The Google Custom Search Operators make it easy to generate very focused SERPs, and SEOquake makes it easy to download the SERPs to CSV files.

IMPORTANT: If your custom search operators define a search that is too narrow, you may see very few, or even zero results.
