How our API works

  • Automatic Extraction is accessible via a single HTTPS Endpoint.
  • You need to submit a request - it can be one or several queries. 
  • Each query must contain the URL you wish to extract data from and also the pageType parameter which determines the type of data you wish to extract from that page.
  • Requests and responses are transmitted in JSON format over HTTPS.
  • Authentication is performed using HTTP Basic Authentication, where your API key is the username and the password is empty.
  • Your API will be provisioned once you sign up for trial.
  • Supporting Documentation can be found here.

Frequently asked questions

What is API scraping?

Data scraping APIs are web services that support the automated retrieval of content from other web pages, quickly and at scale. A data scraping API can make it quicker and easier for developers to build web data extraction applications, with less coding from scratch.

There are various free and paid-for data scraping APIs out there, varying in their functionality, ease of use, and value for money. Some APIs can deal with sites that incorporate anti-scraping measures. Data scraping APIs also vary in the format they deliver their results to the user: these can be in HTML, JSON, plain text, or JPEG images.

What does web scraping mean for business?

Organizations use web scraping services to access a vast range of information that’s out there on the Internet.

From a business perspective, web scraping services automate the process of extracting valuable data from other websites quickly, reliably, legitimately and at scale. What’s more, scraping services ensure that the data organizations need is delivered in a convenient structure for easy retrieval, processing and analysis.

The data provided by web scraping services plays a crucial role in helping businesses understand their competitive landscape, tune in to customers’ sentiments, identify new commercial opportunities and guide better decision making.

Scraping services can be used to extract information from a huge array of online sources in the public domain. These range from news articles, blogs and customer reviews to e-commerce websites, academic libraries, job postings, company reports and entertainment platforms. Web scraping can also unearth a rich seam of ‘alternative data’ that helps financial organizations tailor new products and services to meet their customers’ needs.

Web data extraction companies like Zyte offer a range of scraping services to help organizations access clean, dependable data that reveals actionable insights and fuels sustainable business growth.

Is it legal to use an API to scrape?

Using an API to scrape data from public websites is not inherently illegal. However, many APIs require that you sign up and agree to the site’s Terms of Service. These Terms of Service may place legal limitations on how you access, use, and share the data so it is important that you carefully read them before agreeing.
