Harvesting data from the web primarily refers to digging the data from the web and then storing it on either a cloud storage or one of the traditional storage mediums. The main idea is to find meaningful fields in diverse webpages on the web from where to extract data. Once this data is extracted, storing it on the cloud is the most convenient and cost-effective method to ensure longevity.
While harvesting data from the web, it’s important to determine what technologies are to be used for such harvesting, how the various challenges with regard to structure of web pages and dynamic nature of new content can be harvested. Harvesting data from the web is not a new practice – the pioneer of this approach were search engines such as Google, Yahoo!, Ask, AltaVista. Though much has changed since then, as everyone now has access to suit the harvesting process to their own needs when they are utilizing the services of a web harvesting service such as PromptCloud.
