Methods of Web Scraping

However, before we learn how to collect data effectively, let’s find out why people actually started doing web scraping. The Method of web scraping is many types dependence upon the web sites backend content. Here are just some of the various Web scraping methods available:

Usually, there are two ways of how you can gain access to the content you’re interested in:

  • Use API - In this way, Possessor give permission to access to the users as they have a vested interest in subscriptions, newsletters, and so on.
  • Exemption API - In this way, when web scraping gets in the game.
  • A method with API usage fully depends on buyer’s financial resources. However, it’s not a big deal in terms of technical implementation. All the information that you obtained using API will be both well structured and normalized. For example, it can be in the format of XML or JSON.

    The second method is when it actually comes to web scraping. It becomes a tough call for developers and mathematicians. Just try to realize the extent of this technology. During the scraping, the text is being automatically processed using both Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Semantic Interpretation. Isn’t it a technological breakthrough.

    Web Scraping - Techniques

    These types of methods you'll be able to understand which one connects your needs. Here we going to see some types of methods.

    Copy/Paste Method :

    This method is probably one of the simplest way to scraping. The manual human examination and copy-pasting method may sometimes prove irreplaceable. At times, this technique may be the only practical method to use especially when websites are setup with barriers and machine automation cannot be enabled. This method is widely used for small blogs or shops with poor choice. This method is High-quality content , High-Speed Search and adaptation to the buyer's needs.

    Regular expression & matches capture :

    Regular expressions are supported by the majority of programming languages. What is really cool is that their syntax remains almost unchanged regardless of a programming language. This allows to migrate projects to the programming languages with higher performance and clearer code (for example, from PHP to Ruby). This is simple but at the same time highly effective method of retrieving information from the Internet. It becomes even more effective combined with UNIX capture command line tools (‘CURL’ for example). You can find regular expression in most of the programming languages. In our case, we implemented this web scraping method for several projects on Python and Ruby.

    Choose this method if you deal with self-monitoring of several information providers. Assuming it’s a scraping of separate pieces (product name, it’s price, phone numbers, emails and so on). Using this method, you’ll spend about an hour per website. Of course, if you won’t face any pitfalls, such as JS rendering.

    HTTP-Request :

    Using socket programming, posting HTTP requests can help one retrieve dynamic as well as static web page information. you’ll be able to get dynamic and static pages by sending HTTP-requests to remote servers. This method uses sockets programming and sort all the answers using pre-made data about goal packages (their classes and id). This method is a good choice for any project. Despite the fact that it’s more complicated in terms of implementation, it’ll also allow getting more data in a shorter period of time.

    DOM Structure :

    Dynamically Modify or inspect a web page, client-side scripts parse the contents of the web page into a DOM tree. Analyzing DOM structure based on the screen scraping will be a good choice, for both small and large-scale projects. Nevertheless, the implementation of the project’s automation is quite challenging from the technical perspective. However, it didn’t prevent our team from solving all the challenges as well as successfully implementing this method. To achieve the goal we wrote a browser’s emulator and its “virtual screen” handler with intellectual nodes search in DOM structure. Due to Automation, you'll be able to get qualitative content in large amounts.
