How to Extract Data from Websites

There is a lot of information on the web. Most research now is primarily done online. Once you’ve found what you are looking for, you will certainly be asking yourself how to extract data from websites. Using a copy and paste technique is so time consuming it defeats the purpose of the internet and it will not get the hidden data that may be there. A software program or service will help show you how to extract data from websites, including hidden data such as meta-tags and meta-descriptions. The data is then downloaded and presented in an easy to use format. It is perfect for lists and contact information.
