Octoparse is an extraordinary web scraping tool for data analysis, SEO, marketing, e-commerce, IT, real estate, hospitality and more. We know how hard it is for us to build our own database. It is a headache to write the code using python to conduct web scraping for most of us. Octoparse is the ultimate tool for data extraction (web crawling, data crawling and data scraping). With precise database at hand, you would be able to conduct data analysis, marketing strategy, sentiment analysis, ad campaign, lead generation and more.

In order to achieve automatic web scraping in a real sense, the Octoparse team has never slowed down its pace in making data more accessible and ready to everybody. It’s rooted in our belief that in the era of big data, anyone should be blessed with the capability to collect data so as to harness the power of big data.

Today we are extremely excited to introduce the release of our most stunning feature --  Web Scraping Template in Version 7.2.4 [download here ]

 

What is Web Scraping Template?

Web Scraping Template is a set of pre-formatted tasks ready for everyone without configuring any scraping rules nor writing code.

 

What makes the Template Mode so special?

If you have ever wondered about the level of technical proficiency required to build a web scraper? The answer is “None” with the newly launched Web Scraping Template. With traditional web scraping technique, you have to learn Python in order to complete one task template. However, Python has a stiff learning curve. Think of writing Python as like editing photos using Adobe Photoshop. Comparing with photography filter apps like Meitu, Adobe Photoshop is way more complicated with sets of parameters. Octoparse Web Scraping Templates are the solution for people who have a hard time laying a hand on web scraping. All you need to do is enter the URLs of the websites, and Octoparse will take care of you from there.

 

Who is this for?

Anyone! Yes, for anyone that wants to get data fast and easy. If we already have a template you need, that's great and carry on! If not, let us know through the contact form.
