Companies are looking for reliable ways to integrate the world’s intelligence in order to build new strategies and make informed business decisions. Such data is the driving force behind e-commerce marketplaces, travel fare aggregators, or any company that seeks to rank on the first page of search engine results.
While web scraping can look like a simple process, acquiring publicly available data from multiple sources brings several challenges that companies need to be aware of.
Where to start if your company has no experience in web scraping? What tools do you need to gather public data from various sources for a reasonable price?
Here at Oxylabs, our mission is to share all the know-how that we collected over the years in the industry in order to create a future where big data is accessible to all businesses. For this reason, our team took the initiative to host a webinar discussing web scraping, proxies, and challenges that often lead public data collection. Also, participants will have a chance to watch a live demonstration of Oxylabs’ public web scraping tool, Web Scraper API.
