With Selenium create a google Search list in Incognito mode withe specific location,
Hello to all

a bit of Context:

I have to do a deadly repetitive task for a colleague that begging Monday.
Make a list of Search results in Google Search in Incognito/Secret mode. 300 results for 17 locations, for each Link, title, short description. ARGGHHHHH
I want also to help my colleague not to explode.

What I did until now:

I tried to use Selenium a first time, wired errors (I will come back to that after) occurred. I switched to fake_useragent and BeautifulSoup.
The code is working but I don't know if it is possible to implement location and Incognito mode.
Here is the code:
import urllib
import csv

import requests
from fake_useragent import UserAgent
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup

import re

csv_list = [["順位", "タイトル", "要約", "リンク", "関連キーワード"]]

query = "'tour eifelle'"
query = urllib.parse.quote_plus(query) # Format into URL encoding
number_result = 20

ua = UserAgent()

google_url = "" + query + "&num=" + str(number_result)
response = requests.get(google_url, {"User-Agent": ua.random})
soup = BeautifulSoup(response.text, "html.parser")

result_div = soup.find_all('div', attrs = {'class': 'ZINbbc'})

links = []
titles = []
descriptions = []
link2= ""
for r in result_div:
    # Checks if each element is present, else, raise exception
        link = r.find('a', href = True)
        title = r.find('div', attrs={'class':'vvjwJb'}).get_text()
        description = r.find('div', attrs={'class':'s3v9rd'}).get_text()
        # Check to make sure everything is present before appending
        if link != '' and title != '' and description != '': 
            link3= link['href'].lstrip('/url?q=')
    # Next loop if one element is not present

#to_remove = []
#clean_links = []
#for i, l in enumerate(links):
#    clean ='\/url\?q\=(.*)\&sa',l)

    # Anything that doesn't fit the above pattern will be removed
#    if clean is None:
#        to_remove.append(i)
#        continue
#    clean_links.append(

# Remove the corresponding titles & descriptions
#for x in to_remove:
#    del titles[x]
#    del descriptions[x]

for i in range(len(titles)):

# タイトルリストをcsvに保存

with open('Search_word.csv','w',encoding="utf-8_sig") as f:
    writecsv = csv.writer(f, lineterminator='\n')


Then After that
I tried to go back to Selenium

Here is the code:

import csv
import time  # スリープを使うために必要
from selenium import webdriver  # Webブラウザを自動操作する(python -m pip install selenium)
import chromedriver_binary  # パスを通すためのコード

def ranking(driver):
    i = 1  # ループ番号、ページ番号を定義

    title_list = []  # タイトルを格納する空リストを用意
    link_list = []  # URLを格納する空リストを用意
    summary_list = []
    RelatedKeywords = []

    # 現在のページが指定した最大分析ページを超えるまでループする
    while i <= i_max:
        # タイトルとリンクはclass="r"に入っている
        class_group = driver.find_elements_by_class_name('r')
        class_group1 = driver.find_elements_by_class_name('s')
        class_group2 = driver.find_elements_by_class_name('nVcaUb')
        # タイトルとリンクを抽出しリストに追加するforループ
        for elem in class_group:
            title_list.append(elem.find_element_by_class_name('LC20lb').text)  # タイトル(class="LC20lb")
            link_list.append(elem.find_element_by_tag_name('a').get_attribute('href'))  # リンク(aタグのhref属性)

        for elem in class_group1:
            summary_list.append(elem.find_element_by_class_name('st').text)  # リンク(aタグのhref属性)

        for elem in class_group2:
            RelatedKeywords.append(elem.text)  # リンク(aタグのhref属性)

        # 「次へ」は1つしかないが、あえてelementsで複数検索。空のリストであれば最終ページの意味になる。
        if driver.find_elements_by_id('pnnext') == []:
            i = i_max + 1
            # 次ページのURLはid="pnnext"のhref属性
            next_page = driver.find_element_by_id('pnnext').get_attribute('href')
            driver.get(next_page)  # 次ページへ遷移する
            i = i + 1  # iを更新
            time.sleep(3)  # 3秒間待機

    return title_list, link_list, summary_list, RelatedKeywords  # タイトルとリンクのリストを戻り値に指定


driver = webdriver.Chrome()  # Chromeを準備
# サンプルのHTMLを開く
driver.get('')  # Googleを開く
i_max = 5  # 最大何ページまで分析するかを定義
search = driver.find_element_by_name('q')  # HTML内で検索ボックス(name='q')を指定する
search.send_keys('Test blender')  # 検索ワードを送信する
search.submit()  # 検索を実行
time.sleep(1.5)  # 1.5秒間待機

# ranking関数を実行してタイトルとURLリストを取得する
title, link, summary, RelatedKeywords = ranking(driver)

csv_list = [["順位", "タイトル", "要約", "リンク", "関連キーワード"]]

for i in range(len(title)):

# タイトルリストをcsvに保存

with open('Search_word.csv','w',encoding="utf-8_sig") as f:
    writecsv = csv.writer(f, lineterminator='\n')

I specified the path

But I get this Error Message.

Python 3.8.2 (tags/v3.8.2:7b3ab59, Feb 25 2020, 22:45:29) [MSC v.1916 32 bit (Intel)] on win32 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information. >>> = RESTART: C:\Users\name\Desktop\B\Python\Recherche de mots\Cherche de Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Users\name\Desktop\B\Python\Recherche de mots\Cherche de", line 49, in <module> driver = webdriver.Chrome() # Chromeを準備 File "C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\lib\site-packages\selenium\webdriver\chrome\", line 76, in __init__ RemoteWebDriver.__init__( File "C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\lib\site-packages\selenium\webdriver\remote\", line 157, in __init__ self.start_session(capabilities, browser_profile) File "C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\lib\site-packages\selenium\webdriver\remote\", line 252, in start_session response = self.execute(Command.NEW_SESSION, parameters) File "C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\lib\site-packages\selenium\webdriver\remote\", line 321, in execute self.error_handler.check_response(response) File "C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\lib\site-packages\selenium\webdriver\remote\", line 242, in check_response raise exception_class(message, screen, stacktrace) selenium.common.exceptions.WebDriverException: Message: unknown error: cannot find Chrome binary
After taht I tried to specify the path directly in the code

this ligne
driver = webdriver.Chrome()
But I encounter an other problem,
driver = webdriver.Chrome(r'C:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38-32\Lib\site-packages\chromedriver_binary')

Please see
I tried all the solutions here,
None of the solution were working

If you can find something to help I will be extremely happy.
I am not familiar with chromdriver-binary package, just try downloading chromedriver from here: and then
browser = webdriver.Chrome(executable_path=r"C:\path\to\chromedriver.exe")
Same error discussed in the thread WebDriverException: 'chromedriver' executable needs to be in PATH
mlieqo, Believe me I tried.
Yoriz, thank you also for the Link,
I don<t know working on a Japanese computer change parameters, I am just not finding solutions. Spent 2 days on this. I have to take an other route.
