At a Glance: Web Scraping

Web scraping is the process of extracting data from information freely available on the web. If you want to automate the process of gathering large volumes of information from multiple webpages and sites, a web scraping professional can help you get started.
Web scrapers can use programming languages like Python, Perl, Ruby, or Java to write scripts capable of extracting images, files, contact details, and other information from the web. They can gather data such as email addresses, phone numbers, and physical addresses, then compile that information into organized lists and tables in CSV, .txt, or Excel formats. Web scraping can be as high-tech as using bots and web crawlers to mimic search engines and as low-tech as good old-fashioned human research with copy-and-paste. Web scraping professionals on Upwork can employ a variety of tools like Uipath,, or Kimono to extract information from the web and deliver it into your data format of choice.
