Mozenda Glossary of Terms

Web Content Extractor

See also Website Data Extraction, Website Content Ripper, Web Mining Software, HTML Scrape


A web content extractor collects raw data displayed on a web page — such as product or service information — and converts it to information that can be parsed and organized. This is generally done with data extraction software, of which Mozenda is the most powerful.

Mozenda allows you to reduce time spent on Web Content Extraction.




The purpose of web content extractors is to simulate the human browsing experience by replicating computer commands to click, operate dropdown menus, and ultimately extract specific data fields from a web page. The value of web scraping lies in the automation of the data collection and the transformation of the data itself from an unstructured format to a structured format such as CSV, TSV, or XML file. These files can then be downloaded and analyzed.

A data miner is software that can read encrypted materials on public websites. Data miners can detect and read other software, creating a data flow that can be instructive to businesses and others. Health care researchers can use data miners to find out rates of illnesses, the scope of a public health crisis and more. Law enforcement officials can use data miners to root out criminal activity and to solve crimes. Government agencies can use data miner software to look for policy compliance. An ongoing email list, marketing and advertising expertise, and competitor research are three major reasons for data miners.
