Overall Satisfaction with

I mainly used to refresh feeds used for digital marketing through Google Adwords and other similar digital strategies. It's basically a scraper that you can set up in minutes without having to learn or maintain any code. With a desktop application, it was initially free. Before translating, we used the service to crawl a website for meta tags.
  • When it comes to scraping data from large URL lists, it's very effective and precise.
  • It promised to be extremely simple to use, with no coding required.
  • Crawls and scrapes pages based on patterns you specify through examples.
  • Scrapes a specific section of a website.
  • It necessitates coding for the specific task at hand. It stated that this would not be the case.
  • Since it recently went cloud-only, a desktop application needs to be reintroduced.
  • When compared to other open source competitors, additional scraping features would be nice to see.
  • This used to be free and very useful, so pricing needs to be addressed right away.
  • Data collection & Collaboration within the team.
  • It really helped to collect large chunks of data from the web.
  • When compared to writing a script from scratch, it is very simple to use for creating a web agent. excels at creating a scraping campaign tailored to your needs in a matter of minutes. It's ideal if you need to scrape data on a regular basis, whether on a large or small scale. After you've created a scraping crawler, you can simply run it and return after lunch to enjoy your data without having to second-guess its accuracy.

We used Connotate as a data mining tool for web research as a teaching assistant for the College of Information Sciences and Technology. You could train agents to automatically gather data in a variety of ways, which I used in my own research. Connotate's analysis was not as useful to me as the data itself, because we were using it to inform us of trends rather than make decisions.
