With the advent of social media and proliferation of E-commerce, the amount of insightful data available on the web has been on the rise. Be it market research, competitive intelligence or running your own website using content aggregation, all the data you need is out there on the web. The only drawback of web data is that it is not structured in form since web pages are created with humans in mind and not machines. Crawling, extracting and turning this data into a structured form requires a lot of technical skills and advanced technology resources. This is why you need the help of a dedicated web scraping service provider who can constantly keep expanding your datasets with fresh, structured data that is in a plug to play format.
What Datasets can you get from the Web
Any data available on the web can be turned into a data feed according to the requirements. Ecommerce product feed is one of the most sought after data from the web by many companies operating in the online space. The product feed can be used to stay updated with the changes in price, user sentiments, product description, availability and ratings of various products on the E-commerce portals. A dedicated web scraping service provider can help you get this unstructured product data as a continuous feed of structured data.
Extracting Job feeds data is extremely useful for companies in the recruitment industry for market research or running their own job aggregation site.
