Amazon has the largest bookstore online with a huge catalogue of books from different genres. The data associated with books such as title, author, customer reviews, product ID, price, language and publisher can be extracted for several business use cases. Web scraping services from PromptCloud can be used to extract books data in a structured format.
How is Books data extracted?
The process of extracting books data from Amazon is complicated and technology intensive. We set up web crawlers to extract data points that match client requirements. The frequency at which the crawls have to be run is set and the scraping setup runs on autopilot from there. Finally, the unwanted noise is cleaned out from the extracted data. The client gets clean and structured data in a ready to use form. Our extensive technology stack facilitates fast and high frequency web scraping in lowest latency possible. We deliver the extracted data in popular formats like XML, JSON and CSV. With PromptCloud, you get data in a plug and play format which greatly adds to the value of investment.
Why use web scraping
Web scraping is the only way to extract thousands of records in a short amount of time. Web scraping bots can crawl multiple sites simultaneously which significantly reduces the time required to extract data. The possibilities of errors creeping into the data is almost non-existent when you use web scraping. Although websites might undergo structural or cosmetic changes often, our advanced monitoring systems make sure that the crawlers stay updated and running at all times. A dedicated web scraping service can spare you a lot of time and energy that can be used to focus on your key business activities. Moreover, maintaining web scraping setup can be a headache if setting up a big data stack is not your forte
When considering the complexity of web scraping process, it makes more sense to outsource it rather than trying to do it in-house, which could easily drain your resources.
