The internet contains a huge quantity of useful data. Unfortunately, this information is largely unstructured, which means the data is hard to conveniently access or reuse in unique ways. Web scraping is a technique for converting this unstructured content into structured data, such as an Excel spreadsheet or MySQL database.

You can fill in the details in our request a free quote form to get an idea of price. From our vast experience of building scrapers for all sorts of websites; we now have a matured scraping library which can deliver huge amounts of data at a very nominal cost. Prices are discounted when ordering multiple scrapes.

In what format can I get data? In what format can I get data
We help you extract data from various websites such as online stores, online auctions, shopping sites, real estate sites, financial sites, business directories, and etc. in the format that you wish. The extracted data can be exported to a variety of formats, including Microsoft Excel (CSV), Access, TXT, HTML, XML, SQL script, MySQL script and to any ODBC data source. This variety of export formats allows you to process and analyze data in your customary format.
How long does it take? How long does it take
A simple website can be scraped within a week while a larger one will take several weeks to download all the required data. We can run an instance of a scraper script which can easily download about 5, 00,000 records from a website in a week. In general, If the website is relatively small, well structured, and the data is embedded cleanly in the HTML a script will take about 4-6 days to setup and data will reach you in the frequency you want. When we have received your project details we will give you an estimation of the time required.
How frequently can I get the data? How frequently can I get the data
The frequency large depends upon the size of data that you need, if your target website has say 100,000 or 200,000 records, we can give you this data twice every week. For our monthly scraping contracts, we monitor the scraping scripts and ensure that they are running continuously without any issues. If the underlying websites make any changes in the markup which causes problems for the scraping scripts, we correct the scraping scripts as soon as possible (there is no separate cost for this maintenance work and is included in the monthly cost). We also provide you live reporting at an interval mentioned by you with progress of data collection.
How can I be assured about clean data? How can I be assured about clean data
When we first start web scraping from new websites, the data that gets out is not 100% correct the first time (but this data is not shipped out to our clients). Scraping process has to be tuned as we find different combinations regularly. We have a process of validating data in place, where we randomly select data from the output and cross check the same on the parent website. This way we continuously improve the quality of data that gets extracted.
