Obtaining data in a usable form about other businesses

I'm interested in analyzing Google reviews of 11 businesses that I patronize, but do not own. The content is (obviously) publicly available, but the format is difficult. Is it permissible/possible to obtain review content (text + star rating) as two columns in a spreadsheet without using the My Business API? I tried simple copy/paste - the text of the review comes through fine but the star rating doesn't.

 

Thanks for any help or guidance you can provide.

Hi,

 

No. Google is not going to format and provide information for businesses you do not own. This is something you will need to take the time to do on your own. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
