Data crawling, also known as web scraping or web harvesting, is the process of automatically extracting information from websites. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as market research, price comparison, and sentiment analysis.
The process of data crawling involves using a software program, our proprietary web crawler, to navigate through the pages of a website and extract the desired information. Our program can be programmed to follow links on the website, allowing it to access multiple pages and collect a large amount of data in a relatively short period of time. This process can also be done manually, but it is generally considered less efficient and less effective.
Data crawling can be beneficial for your business as it allows you to gather valuable insights about your competitors, customers, and industry trends. However, it is important to note that data crawling can sometimes be illegal if it breaches website's terms and conditions or if scraping sensitive data without permission. Therefore, we ensure to follow the laws and regulations surrounding data crawling and to respect the rights of website owners.
