Unlock your business potential using web scraping
Ever wondered how web scraping works? You're not alone! Web scraping, or web harvesting, is the process of using bots to extract data from a website. For example, if you just started out your business, you may want to monitor your competitors; if you’re a marketer, you may want to collect customer reviews and get user feedback signals for your marketing strategy.
