This course has been designed to provide the basics of web scraping and data extraction. You will find a lot of techniques for the data mining, from the single page extraction, to the most complex techniques like the creation of a crawler for the research.
Some sections are also focused to software tailored for extracting:
- geolocated data
- SEO data
- users comments
You will also discover how to anonymize your extractions to prevent a block or a temporary ban.
No programming knowledge is required, all the software are really easy to use.
You will find many examples of data mining in the field of marketing and SEO and all the advice about the best software to "tame" difficult sites.
PS: some tutorial are about paid softwares. I have no agreement with the software house producing it, I just use them in my work. When it's possible I will use free software.
