Building a LinkedIn scrapper using the Web Clipper

I’ve been playing around CSS selector on the Web Clipper Block and created a Clipper that automatically extracts information from a LinkedIn using the CSS selector.

This could be useful for recruiters, sales reps, or people just building a social network.

Here’s my full write up:


Thanks so much for creating this Nick - would love to chat with you more about this as I’m going to be using this as I’m starting at a new company next week. I’ve been looking for a replacement since Indeed acquired ZapInfo. Let me know if you’re open to a chat.

Hey Nick, thanks for sharing this - it looks like that notion write-up link is down. Any chance you could share an updated link?

Hi @Nick_Miller , I just wanted to thank you very much for putting this together. It helped me a lot!

This is awesome. I’m not quite getting all of the fields to map, only a couple of them, but will keep working on it. Great idea here.

EDIT: I made edits to the CSS selector and it has worked out great. In fact, I’m pulling in the About section as well.

Great work!
