Web scraping, web harvesting, or web data extraction - is a process of extracting data from websites. This term usually refers to automated processes implemented using specialized software.
Here is a typical web scraping flow: let's say, we want to extract some specific information (title, price, description) on books listed in some online store (for example, amazon.com). The software will open specific web pages, grab the html of each page, convert to structured format and store to database or to csv/xls file. There are actually a lot of cases when web scraping can be used. Any automated data extraction from web sites is a web scraping: lead generation, product details extraction, price comparison, real estate monitoring, trends monitoring, tickets, social media and many many more.
