Web Scraping allows you to gather information from other websites and present it in new and unique ways for the benefits of your users or customers.
For example, www.skyscanner.net scrape airline prices from multiple airlines and present them all together in a single interface and have built a $1 billion business out of web scraping (+ a bit of affiliate marketing).
Literally any kind of data can be scraped and if you’re unsure of ideas yourself then get in touch and tell us more about your business and we’ll help you figure out some real value add for your business.
It’s important to stay on the right side of the law too – web scraping is a grey area and some sites are no-go areas due to complex terms and conditions, but remember, Google scrapes the entire web and presents snippets of those websites on it’s home page so it’s not as grey as you might think.
