Web parsing is the technology used to extract large amounts of data in a structured format from the web. Since almost all the websites display the data in an unstructured format, it is not feasible to extract this data without the help of sophisticated technologies. Web parsing for data extraction emerges as the perfect solution to aggregate data sets from the web. Parsing makes the unstructured data sets on the web structured and machine-readable so that it can be deployed for various business use cases where data is essential.
