What is a web scraping?

Web scraping, web harvesting, or web data extraction is data scraping used for extracting data from websites. Web scraping software may access the World Wide Web directly using the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, or through a web browser. While web scraping can be done manually by a software user, the term typically refers to automated processes implemented using a bot or web crawler. It is a form of copying, in which specific data is gathered and copied from the web, typically into a central local database or spreadsheet, for later retrieval or analysis.

Web scraping a web page involves fetching it and extracting from it. Fetching is the downloading of a page (which a browser does when you view the page). Therefore, web crawling is a main component of web scraping, to fetch pages for later processing. Once fetched, then extraction can take place. The content of a page may be parsed, searched, reformatted, its data copied into a spreadsheet, and so on. Web scrapers typically take something out of a page, to make use of it for another purpose somewhere else. An example would be to find and copy names and phone numbers, or companies and their URLs, to a list (contact scraping).

 

What you can do with data scraping?

Web scraping is used for content scraping, and as a component of applications used for web indexing, web mining and data mining, online price change monitoring and price comparison, product review scraping (to watch the competition), gathering real estate listings, weather data monitoring, website change detection, research, tracking online presence and reputation, web mashup and, web data integration.

Using data scraping you can build sitemaps that will navigate the site and extract the data. Using different type selectors you will navigate the site and extract multiple types of data - text, tables, images, links and more.

 

What role scraper should play for you?

Web scraping is the process of automatically mining data or collecting information from the World Wide Web. It is a field with active developments sharing a common goal with the semantic web vision, an ambitious initiative that still requires breakthroughs in text processing, semantic understanding, artificial intelligence and human-computer interactions. Current web scraping solutions range from the ad-hoc, requiring human effort, to fully automated systems that are able to convert entire web sites into structured information, with limitations.

 

Below are the ways for scraping data:

  • Human Copy Paste : Sometimes even the best web-scraping technology cannot replace a human’s manual examination and copy-and-paste, and sometimes this may be the only workable solution when the websites for scraping explicitly set up barriers to prevent machine automation.
  • Text Pattern Matching : A simple yet powerful approach to extract information from web pages can be based on the UNIX grep command or regular expression-matching facilities of programming languages
  • HTTP programming : Static and dynamic web pages can be retrieved by posting HTTP requests to the remote web server using socket programming.
  • HTML parsing : Many websites have large collections of pages generated dynamically from an underlying structured source like a database. Data of the same category are typically encoded into similar pages by a common script or template. In data mining, a program that detects such templates in a particular information source, extracts its content and translates it into a relational form, is called a wrapper. Wrapper generation algorithms assume that input pages of a wrapper induction system conform to a common template and that they can be easily identified in terms of a URL common scheme.Moreover, some semi-structured data query languages, such as Xquery and the HTQL, can be used to parse HTML pages and to retrieve and transform page content.
  • DOM parsing: By embedding a full-fledged web browser, such as the Internet Explorer or the Mozilla browser control, programs can retrieve the dynamic content generated by client-side scripts. These browser controls also parse web pages into a DOM tree, based on which programs can retrieve parts of the pages.
  • Vertical aggregation : There are several companies that have developed vertical specific harvesting platforms. These platforms create and monitor a multitude of “bots” for specific verticals with no "man in the loop" (no direct human involvement), and no work related to a specific target site. The preparation involves establishing the knowledge base for the entire vertical and then the platform creates the bots automatically. The platform's robustness is measured by the quality of the information it retrieves (usually number of fields) and its scalability (how quick it can scale up to hundreds or thousands of sites). This scalability is mostly used to target the Long Tail of sites that common aggregators find complicated or too labor-intensive to harvest content from.
  • Semantic annotation recognizing : The pages being scraped may embrace metadata or semantic markups and annotations, which can be used to locate specific data snippets. If the annotations are embedded in the pages, as Microformat does, this technique can be viewed as a special case of DOM parsing. In another case, the annotations, organized into a semantic layer,are stored and managed separately from the web pages, so the scrapers can retrieve data schema and instructions from this layer before scraping the pages.
  • Computer vision web-page analysis : There are efforts using machine learning and computer vision that attempt to identify and extract information from web pages by interpreting pages visually as a human being would.

 

Key Features of Web Scraping

In order to remain competitive, businesses must be able to act quickly and assuredly in the markets. Web Scraping plays a big role in the development of various business organizations that use the services. 

The benefits of these services are: 

  1. Low Cost: Web Scraping service saves hundreds of thousands of man-hours and money as the use of scraping service completely avoids manual work.
  2. Less Time: Scraping solution not only helps to lower the cost, it also reduces the time involved in data extraction task. This tool ensures and gathers fast results required by people.
  3. Accurate Results: Web Scraping solutions help to get the most accurate and fast results that cannot be collected by human beings. It generates correct product pricing data, sales leads, duplication of online database, captures real estate data, financial data, job postings, auction information and many more.
  4. Time to Market Advantage: Fast and accurate results help businesses to save time, money and labor and get an obvious time-tomarket advantage over the competitors.
  5. High Quality: A Web Scraping solution provides access to clean, structured and high quality data through scraping APIs so that the fresh data can be integrated into the systems.

Finding and hiring expert scraper/crawler

It’s important to note that not all scraper will be ideal fits for every project. For example, those with highly analytical backgrounds in software engineering would be ideal for developing algorithms but may not be the right fit for a data scraping project. That’s why it’s so important to understand what type of scraping expert will bring the most benefit to your company and business goals.

Here are some questions to consider:

What is the overall learning you hope to find? 

By including your goal in the project description, it allows professionals to better understand what type of work is required.

 

What core skills will scraping experts need to complete the project? 

The answer will revolve around your current data infrastructure and the processes used to extract information.

 

Would you benefit from someone with highly specialized skills in a few areas of data scraping, or would a well-rounded expert serve you better?

 

Are there any time constraints to consider with this project?

Let professionals know the amount of hours of work that might be involved.

 

What kind of budget will this project have? 

The more experience and expertise a data scraper has, the higher they expect to be compensated. Higher budgets will more likely give top-tier experts a reason to submit a proposal.

 

Web scraping project template

Below is a sample of how a project description may look. Keep in mind that many people use the term “job description,” but a full job description is only needed for employees. When engaging a freelancer as an independent contractor, you typically just need a statement of work, job post, or any other document that describes the work to be done.

The ideal professional will also be able to advise you on additional metrics to analyze and compare in order to help you meet your goals.

Also, keep in mind that communication is always a key consideration in the data science field. A brief interview can allow you to gauge how strong each professional is in expressing ideas and explaining their process. The more you speak to each professional by phone, email, or chat, the better you’ll be able to gauge their professionalism and communication skills and determine whether they’re right for your project.

Why Developers Write Horrible Documentation

Your developers love to solve problems, implement new features, and squash bugs. And, they are pretty brilliant at this. But, they hate writing. Most engineers can’t write a single coherent sentence, let alone a user manual.

 

That’s because writing and programming are two different skills. One requires abstract thinking and problem solving while the other requires great language skills, conciseness, and playfulness. Sure, both developers and writers share some skills like reasoning and problem solving but they manifest differently.

 

That’s not to say that all developers are bad writers. Some of them know how to create straightforward, well-organized sentences. For most of them, however, this task is a challenge, and they’ll do anything to escape the act of writing. So, even though your developers understand your product best and might seem like the perfect person to create user manuals, it’s actually better to work with a technical writer.

 

We know what you’re thinking

Professional writers can adapt everything from their tone to their writing style to the identity of your business. They conduct interviews with you and your employees to get a feel of the personality of your company. Niche expert writers often have hands-on experience in your industry so getting to the heart of complex topics isn’t something difficult.

 

Writers may specialize in an industry or by project type. Such as tech writers or those who only write direct mail pieces. Although writer portfolios may include a mix of project types, writers usually fall into one of these three categories:

 

Content writer: These non-advertising writers are skilled at writing blog posts, ebooks, and whitepapers.

 

Advertising writer: Many worked in ad agencies and are familiar with graphic-heavy projects, slogans, or mixed media campaigns.

 

Sales writer: They work on projects focused on conversions. Such as getting the click, call or purchase. Projects include product packaging to email campaigns and landing pages.

Write a great Job Post to hire content writer

The goal of your job post is to help the right freelancer find you. You can do this by writing a strong project description, which is simpler than you might think.

Your job post just needs to answer these three questions: 

What do you need done? 

When do you need it? 

What are the start and end dates for your project? 

 

These details not only help you attract more skilled freelancers, you’ll also receive more accurate proposals.

 

Now that you posted your job and received a bundle of proposals, here’s how to quickly identify the most ideal top talent for your project.

 

1. compare freelancers

Narrow down your initial pain by filtering out these proposals & compare the selected proposals to judge which one is the well suited for your needs

 

2. Interview Them On Toogit Messenger

Once you narrow the shortlist down further, schedule a interview with them using Toogit Messenger. Many companies prefer video over phone because video lets you see their body language and hear their tone of voice. But sometime or in the writing case as you can view their skills on chat you never found this on other side. Ask questions that help you understand their process and passion for writing, and your project.

 

3. Test them with small assignment

Once you identified the finalists, consider giving each writer a small test assignment. 

 

4. Hire them on Toogit and Get started with Toogit’s unique project management tool. Toogit is a premium freelancing site with all the premium features to help you find the best candidates for your job and help complete the job.

 

How Content Writers Work

Content writers work with their clients in order to determine how to bring the greatest possible benefit to potential readers. This requires thoughtful conversations between writers and their clients, plus extensive research to locate the best possible information. Being able to understand business models and the client’s overall goals are also important, so superior communication is always a necessity.

 

Some content writers may handle more advanced tasks like preparing ad copy, technical writing, or explainer/video scripts. Others could have backgrounds in marketing, search optimization, journalism, business, or a number of other fields to make their services more comprehensive for their clients.

 

Considerations For Hiring A Content Writer

There are a wide range of professionals in the field of content writing with different levels of experience, so it’s important to have a clear understanding of the type of services you’re required. For instance, novice content writers may be suitable for writing things like blog posts and product descriptions. It may require a more senior content writer, however, to clearly articulate complex topics for the general public.

 

How To Choose A Best Content Writer

Since writing is the most important skill, you should look for well-written custom proposals that directly answer each of the questions posed in your job description. Also pay attention for any typos or poorly written sentences since it’s a direct reflection of the work you’ll likely receive. The same goes for any messages or emails exchanged during the selection process; top professionals will be quick to respond with excellent communication skills.

 

Additionally, remember that your brand has a distinct personality of its own—even if it hasn’t been actually defined yet. You want to find a writer who can capture the appropriate tone and create content that will resonate with your audience.

 

Finally, be sure to ask plenty of questions about the writer’s experience and familiarity with your industry. The more comfortable you feel with a writer during the hiring process, the better the overall experience will be in the long run.

Python is one of the fastest growing programming languages. It has undergone more than 28 years of the successful span. Python itself reveals its success story and a promising future ahead. Python programming language is presently being used by a number of high traffic websites including Google, Yahoo Groups, Yahoo Maps, Shopzilla, Web Therapy, Facebook, NASA, Nokia, IBM, SGI Inc, Quora, Dropbox, Instagram and Youtube. Similarly, Python also discovers a countless use for creating gaming, financial, scientific and instructive applications.

 

Python is a fast, flexible, and powerful programing language that's freely available and used in many application domains. Python is known for its clear syntax, concise code, fast process, and cross-platform compatibility.

 

Python is considered to be in the first place in the list of all AI and machine learning development languages due to the simplicity. The syntaxes belonging to python are terribly easy and can be easily learn. Therefore, several AI algorithms will be easily implemented in it. Python takes short development time as compared to different languages like Java, C++ or Ruby. Python supports object oriented, functional as well as procedure oriented styles of programming. There are lots of libraries in python that make our tasks easier.

 

Some technologies relying on python:

Python has become the core language as far as the success of following technologies is concerned. Let’s dive into the technologies which use python as a core element for research, production and further developments.

 

  1. Networking: Networking is another field in which python has a brighter scope in the future. Python programming language is used to read, write and configure routers and switches and perform other networking automation tasks in a cost-effective and secure manner.
  2. Big Data: The future scope of python programming language can also be predicted by the way it has helped big data technology to grow. Python has been successfully contributing in analyzing a large number of data sets across computer clusters through its high-performance toolkits and libraries.
  3. Artificial Intelligence (AI): There are plenty of python frameworks, libraries, and tools that are specifically developed to direct Artificial Intelligence to reduce human efforts with increased accuracy and efficiency for various development purposes. It is only the Artificial Intelligence that has made it possible to develop speech recognition system, interpreting data like images, videos etc.

 

Why Choose Python for Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning?

Whether a startup or associate MNC, Python provides a large list of benefits to all. The usage of Python is specified it cannot be restricted to only one activity. Its growing popularity has allowed it to enter into some of the most popular and complicated processes like artificial intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), natural language process, data science etc. The question is why Python is gaining such momentum in AI? And therefore the answer lies below:

 

Flexibility: Flexibility is one of the core advantages of Python. With the option to choose between OOPs approach and scripting, Python is suitable for every purpose. It works as a perfect backend and it also suitable for linking different data structures together.

 

Platform agnostic: Python provides developer with the flexibility to provide an API from the existing programming language. Python is also platform independent, with just minor changes in the source codes, you can get your project or application up and running on different operating systems.

 

Support: Python is a completely open source with a great community. There is a host of resources available which can get any developer up to speed in no time. Not to forget, there is a huge community of active coders willing to help programmers in every stage of developing cycle.

 

Prebuilt Libraries: Python has a lot of libraries for every need of your AI project. Few names include Numpy for scientific computation, Scipy for advanced computing and Pybrain for machine learning.

 

Less Code: Python provides ease of testing - one of the best among competitors. Python helps in easy writing and execution of codes. Python can implement the same logic with as much as 1/5th code as compared to other OOPs languages.

 

Applications of Python:

There are so many applications of Python in the real world. But over time we’ve seen that there are three main applications for Python

Web Development: Web frameworks that are based on Python like Django and Flask have recently become very popular for web development.

Data Science (including Machine Learning): Machine Learning with Python has made it possible to recognize images, videos, speech recognition and much more.

Data Analysis/Visualization: Python is also better for data manipulation and repeated tasks. Python helps in the analysis of a large amount of data through its high-performance libraries and tools. One of the most popular Python libraries for the data visualization is Matplotlib.
