Now, if I asked most people what is meant by 'online web scraping,' I'm guessing that most would have to Google up the phrase to understand exactly what it's all about. For those of you who aren't sure, I'll tell you now. In simple terms, web scraping (also known as web harvesting or web data extraction) is the art of extracting bulk data from websites. While it can be done manually, the most efficient method is to use an automated process to copy the information. The concept of the web scraper online involves the mass copying and consequent retrieval of data from websites to your database or spreadsheet for later analysis or use. 

Basically, the raw data is then turned into a great business opportunity which can garner sales leads, monitor ecommerce, collect product information from online shopping malls, to export internal data for line of business, to build data sets for research and data journalism, to gather feedback for marketing, to monitor results for SEO and to get 'clean data' for analysis. In fact, any list-like data that is visible online can be easily collected. 

Listly.io is a web app that helps marketers and business analysts scrape web data very easily and without the need to write a single piece of coding. While there are many different types of web scrapers available online, many are a little too complex and feature rich to be easily manageable. The beauty of Listly is that it's a very user-friendly, lean, mean machine that is really quick and is best for downloading and organizing web data. However, the feature that most users seem to love the most is the web scraper Chrome extension tool. When installed and signed in to Chrome, it's easy to gather all the online data that you see. 

You might think that Listly would suffer in comparison with similar web scraping tools because of its lean features but, while it is simple and quick to use, it certainly doesn't lack in automation or productivity. With a little more advanced functionality, you can use schedule automation, click automation and proxy IP etc as an effective online web scraper.

For a while there, web scraping was considered illegal. These days, the only possible issue lies with terms of contract but even that has had enforceability issues over the years. So, what we have is an app that gathers mass data garnering everything from sales leads to real estate listings to price comparisons. If it's a list and it's out there, Listly will gobble it up. It will scrape data from single or multiple pages and it will do it quickly and cleanly. Quite simply, the insights gained from this well organized web app turns data into business opportunities. There are plenty of web scraping apps out there but very few that are as fast and efficient as Listly.io
