Mozenda Glossary of Terms

Web Spider

See also Web Bot, Web Robot, Web Scraping, Web Parsing


Web Spiders are active automations that perform various tasks on the internet. These are most frequently used by large search engines to index or record the hyperlinks on each page and their destination. By definition, a web spider crawls through many web domains and is not dependent on the format or layout of any one web page.

Mozenda gives you the tools to extract data like a Spider or Robot.




For many people, the emergence and exploding power of the internet is nothing short of extraordinary, which is as it should be. Its capabilities are still only in infancy. Businesses continue to discover new methods of using the tools of data acquisition, experimenting with new technologies and software systems in an effort to gain a market edge.

The Mozenda Advantage

One of these tools is the Mozenda Data Extraction System. Just as the railroad transformed continents in the 19th century, so has the internet transformed global commerce today. The Mozenda software suite has given many companies the advantage they have been looking for to conquer the mountains of information and tackle the challenges of unstructured data.
