Well it has multiple problems: 1.yes the xpath adress seems to be non-working 2.you have to make a string if you want to print it use html.tostring(doc) (Warning this function takes a single element only doc.xpath(xpath) in your code returns a list so you have to choose an element from it eg html.tostring(doc[0]) see my code below) My advices for you 1. Search a html tag witch contains all of the search res in our case <div id="ires"> 2.Then inside this tag search for a html tag witch contains an individual search res in our case <div class="g"> 3.Then get your data out from the <div class="g"> tag My code does the first 2 steps for you the third step is up to you: https://code.sololearn.com/cF9AXMiY802Z/#py
