When you think of web scraping, what comes to your mind? Web scraping is often called web harvesting or web data extraction, and yes, it’s about collecting data from a web page. If you’re a marketer, you might need to start off with market research; if you’re a realtor, you might want some more real estate listings. Whether you’re a marketer or a realtor, your first step here is data collection!

In this post, we’ll let you know how to collect web data from Yelp.com, which publishes crowd-sourced reviews about businesses, such as restaurants, bars, dentists, beauty salons, etc. More specifically, you can use web data to reach more customers or develop your own competitive strategies.

One more, you can use this walkthrough for your go-to websites, such as Foursquare, UrbanSpoon, and OpenTable. Check out how Listly is simplifying your workload!

Basic Extraction

First things first, go to your target website and hit LISTLY WHOLE.

Once you hit the button, you’ll be taken to Listly’s data extraction page.

Group Extraction

Hit the + GROUP button and paste the web page addresses you want to scrape to the ADD URL section.

Once you click SUBMIT, Listly will automatically start extracting your target web pages.

You can check out your data extraction history by clicking the SUCCESS button.

Don’t forget to sort your data and click EXCEL to download them into Excel.
