Powerful Web Crawler Engine Inside
Powerful, multi-threaded web crawler engine provides for quick and efficient data extraction. Web Content Extractor supports password-protected websites and can access the Internet via multiple proxy-servers ensuring speed and reliability. Not only does the crawler support downloading with up to 20 simultaneous threads, it is also highly configurable. You can set it to ignore certain URLs or include them into the extraction basing on a title or a URL match. Such flexibility means accurate web scraping at a high pace, as well as is an additional way to customize the process.
Wide Exporting Capabilities
In addition to its immerse extracting power, the program also features wide exporting capabilities. You can save gathered data into a plain CSV or text file, export to HTML or XML, as well as to put the data right into a given database format using the built-in possibility to export information into MSSQL/MySQL script or directly into any ODBC-compatible destination.
This allows you to apply the scraped data immediately – say, perform an in-depth analysis using spreadsheet application, create a summary report and upload it via FTP, or import the data into your own application or service’s database.
Web Content Extractor provides serious automation of the website scraping task. Usually, you only need to specify a basic extraction pattern (done in few clicks too) and run the extraction process. The program automatically scans the provided URLs and scrapes all the info that meets the specified template. And command line options allow setting the program to work with any third-party scheduler.
The program doesn’t try to outsmart a user though. Yes, it determines elements on a page and the type of the data field suggesting the extraction results as a preview, but you can always make necessary changes or adjust the program’s choice manually if needed.
