Octoparse. Now this is an interesting company. I was recently promoted to Director of Sales and I knew that in order to get leads, I'd have to be able to scrape the web at my discretion and look for the data that I wanted. That being said I have 0 prior experience with this process before now. And make no mistake, it's technical. With all that in mind, I have only ever had to reach out to their customer service once for help. They responded the same day and I was off and running. Octoparse also has some YouTube videos that have proven helpful. Once I become more proficient with the program we're going to buy more licenses so I can teach more people in my company to use it for other projects.

  • Crawling.
  • Data Export.

  • Haven't had any issues with the program or company. But there's certainly a learning curve. More tutorial videos wouldn't hurt.
Octoparse is good for web scraping and crawling. It has done everything I've ever asked it to with very few exceptions. With that in mind, I would think that if it wasn't able to preform a task, it's probably user error. I'm hesitant to reach out to their customer service team, as with the free plan you get what they call "community, lazy support" which makes it seem like they'll get to you when they feel like it. Not really complaining though, since I'm not paying for anything, so what can you expect? At any rate, I'd highly recommend them.

Octoparse Scorecard Summary

About Octoparse

Octoparse is a free web scraping software that turns unstructured or semi-structured data from any website into structured datasets, no coding needed. Extracted data can be exported as API, CSV, Excel, HTML, TXT, or into a database. It’s a free tool for data analysis and mining.

Scraping the web on a large scale simultaneously, based on distributed computing, is the most powerful feature of Octoparse. After you upload your configuration project to the cloud, you can choose to perform the extraction concurrently by using many cloud servers. If you need to scrape 10,000 web pages within a short time, then Octoparse cloud service fits best. 

Crawlers run in Octoparse are determined by the extraction rules configured. The extraction rule would tell Octoparse: which website is to be open; where is the data you plan to crawl, etc. provides high speed data collection, performing up to 10 concurrent threads. Being a Windows application, Octoparse works well for static and dynamic websites, including those whose web pages are using Ajax. There are various export formats of your choice like CSV, EXCEL, HTML, TXT, and databases (MySQL, SQL Server, and Oracle).
