Simply start clicking and collect the data you need. No upfront configuration or programming skills needed.Add to Chrome Watch Demo
The point and click selection tool allows you to grab any data element on a webpage. With Multiple/Single toggle selects, you can either select all similar elements or only the clicked element. Now you have a finer control on what to scrape.
The scraped result are available to you at all times as you scrape through multiple websites. No need to login to another app to see what you have scraped so far. Less friction, more scraping!
Once you are done, download the result in a JSON or CSV file. No signup or fee required just to see your hard work!
Web scraping is extracting data from websites. You can then take the data to make it suit your (business) purpose. There are many ways to do web scraping, but most of them require money, coding experience and upfront configurations.
Couple main use cases: if you are a data scientist, you can use it for research; if you are a business owner, you can use it for market analysis/comparing prices; if you are a digital marketer, you can use it for lead generation.
I was trying to gather a specific set of data that was scattered among blog posts and websites. Most of the scraping tools out there focus on recurring scraping of multi-page mega sites like Yelp. Although they do provide analytic data around the scraped results, it was not what I needed. I need something that allows me to easily scrap multiple webpages as I browse (like websites I only visit once), 0 friction (no upfront configuration needed), and persists the data (so I can keep growing the list as I scrape), and then generates a CSV.
The fact that it traversed DOM tree reminds me of a spider. Hence the name :)
I'm working on the next phase of Spider, and it's going to help make the process of gathering data even easier. If you are interested, please sign up below; if you do web scraping often, I'd love to understand your use case and make Spider an awesome tool for everyone!
