Mozenda Glossary of Terms

Data Scraping

See also Extract Data, HTML Spider, Web Bot


Data scraping is the action of collecting data from webpages on the internet. This is generally in mass, or in large amounts, and usually involves complex programming or automatated software. Scraping usually focuses on obtaining multiple fields attached to a main list of items. This is different from crawling, which implies the collection of only one data point, such as emails, from multiple domains.
