Google themselves made a large-scale comparison (they did) and we have to accept GoogleSheet is definitely a tremendous collaborative tool:


And according to this excellent article from, we count 750 million. to 2 billion. people using GoogleSheet in the world in 2021, versus 750 million. to 1.2 billion. for Excel.

In this tutorial, we’ll see how to export your data from leboncoin, the main French Real Estate website, into a gorgeous GoogleSheet. Data scraping. Done. Online collabration. Done.

Let’s go!


Leboncoin uses DataDome bot mitigation which prevents most of the web scrapers from extracting data. We'll use our Leboncoin Listings Search Export automation for this tutorial, which has in-built DataDome Bypass feature.


First, let’s setup a clear Leboncoin Squid. If you need enhanced tutorial, feel free to check this dedicated article. Let’s start by picking from our browser the very URL we do need

e.g. all the housings in France, worth over 1 million euros


Now, let’s create a Leboncoin Search Export cluster, and let’s add our precious URL:


OK we are ready! Now we can simply click on Save&Exit, in the upper right corner:


Our cluster is created!


Now, let’s prepare our googlesheet. Let’s first go on the googlesheet website, property of the house of Google, and let’s create a sheet.

Let’s visit simply this website, and click on “Create a spreadsheet”:


NB: you’ll need to get a google account to perform this task. Before going ahead, be sure you do own a google account with proper credentials.

A proper sheet is created, hosted on the cloud!

Let’s rename it first, and then click on “Share“:


Now, let’s be sure to share to Anyone (1) with Editor (2) right:


NB: If not performed this way, our system will be not authorized to expand data to the dedicated googlesheet. Be sure to proprely set it this very way.

OK we’re done here! Let’s now simply copy-paste the URL of the sheet, clicking on copy link, and we’re good:



Last step of this tutorial! Let's just go back to our lobstr cluster - and click on the icon in the upper right corner that represents a paper plane.


Then, simply paste the URL of your Googlesheet (1), and press Save (2).


We’re fully up and ready!



Now let’s simply launch our crawler:


A new run is triggered, time to let the professionals play:

Collection is complete! We did collect 104 listings, in 3 minutes, which is about 30 listings per minute. And directly visible from the RunPage:
