    We’re a job board, and use Mozenda for scraping jobs from clients’ career centers on their corporate web sites….works awesome, only takes about 20 minutes to set up a robot, and it allows us to traverse pages, pull elements of the job (job title, description, citystate, etc.) and then format the data and send it to our systems in a nice clean SGML feed. It is 100% web based and they charge per page…very reasonable. Check it out at http://mozenda.com/

    Excellent tool and thanks for the share.

    I’m going to give it a crack to collect data and content for blog posts. Lets see how it goes. Will update meanwhile if you have any thoughts on it then please let me know.

    I recently scraped all of my website’s data before migrating. I also downloaded the server files, but one cannot be too cautious :)

    I’ve tried mozenda but all of the tool tips, popups and interface make it difficult to use. I prefer outwit because it’s much more clean and intuitive.

    Been using this tool for a while now and is doing a great job for me but you have provided more ways on how to do scraping effectively. Thanks Ethan for this informative article!

    I love OutWit Hub and I am constantly discovering new features. Thanks a lot for “Fast Scrape – Include Selected Data”! Great one. I hadn’t even noticed it.

    BTW, outwit just released a new app for scraping contact emails, addresses and phones, called email sourcer. Not as thorough as a custom scraper in the Hub, but super simple. I haven’t tested all features but it looks like it might be faster depending on the need and the case.

    I haven’t tried using any of these tools in scraping data, as I go through the tutorial it makes me understand how useful these tools are. A must try thanks for the tips and step by step walk through!

    I’m looking for a php script to scrape and post headlines on my website without any intervention. I would just run a cron job daily. I thought this might work but it looks like this is only to get data. Any ideas?

    Nice, but what if you scrape a platform like google ? is that a possible problem to get blocked wit your ip Adres ?
