What is Web Scraping?
Web Scraping also termed as, screen scraping, web data extraction or web harvesting is a simple technique used to extract large amounts of data from websites to save it to a local file on your computer or a database spreadsheet. A web scraping software will automatically load and extract data from multiple web pages based on the client’s requirements. Then, the data built is customised either for a specific website or is configured to work with any website. You can easily save the data available on your computer with a single click.
