What data can you provide me?
We have the technical capability to extract any website data.

How will you manage my data project?
After you’ve submitted your project request, a member of our solution architecture team will quickly get in touch to set up a project discovery call. They’ll explore your requirements of data extraction from websites in detail and gather the information they need, including:
What site[s] do you want to crawl?

How can Zyte help me extract website content?
Zyte’s Data Extraction services is an end-to-end solution that can help you with web content extraction. It’s the most hassle-free way to get clean structured data; quickly and accurately. But if you’re looking for a DIY option, Zyte offers web data extraction tools to make your job easier.
What is meant by data extraction?
Data extraction is described as the automated process of obtaining information from a source like a web page, document, file or image. This extracted information is typically stored and structured to allow further processing and analysis.
Extracting data from Internet websites - or a single web page - is often referred to as web scraping. This can be performed manually by a person cutting and pasting content from individual web pages. This is likely to be time-consuming and error-prone for all but the smallest projects.
Hence, data extracting is typically performed by some kind of data extractor - a software application that automatically fetches and extracts data from a web page (or a set of pages) and delivers this information in a neatly formatted structure. This is most likely a spreadsheet or some kind of machine-readable data exchange format such as JSON or XML. This extracted data can then be used for other purposes, either displayed to humans via some kind of user interface or processed by another program.
Why is data extraction important?
There’s a vast amount of information out there on the Internet. Extracting and aggregating data from public-domain websites and other digital sources - also known as web data scraping - can give you a significant business edge over your competitors.
Data extracting generates insights that can help companies analyze the performance of a particular product in the marketplace, track customer sentiments expressed in online reviews, monitor the health of your brand, generate leads, or compare price information across different marketplaces.
It also gives researchers a powerful tool to study the performance of financial markets and individual companies, guide investment decisions and shape new products.
There are many non-financial uses for data extraction, such as scraping news websites to monitor the quality and accuracy of stories or to monitor trends in reporting. It’s also used to obtain information from public institutions, for example, to track contract awards and hence investigate possible corruption.
Data extraction can significantly streamline the process of getting accurate information from other websites that your own organization needs to survive and thrive.
What is a data extraction example?
There’s a vast range of applications and use cases for website data scraping. One popular example where data extraction is widely used comes from the world of retail and e-commerce. It’s an invaluable tool for competitor price monitoring, allowing companies – and market researchers – to monitor the pricing of rivals’ products and services. Manually tracking competitors’ prices that may change on a daily basis isn’t practical - especially if you’re monitoring the pricing of hundreds or thousands of different products. A data scraping tool automates this process, scraping pricing data from e-marketplaces and competitors’ websites quickly and reliably.
