If you want to extract data from your website, then you can do this in a few ways. In the past, you would have to extract data from yur website yourself by hand or hire a data entry specialist to go through the website and remove the data that you wanted to have records of. You or your data entry specialist would then have to organize the information and enter it into an Excel file or other appropriate file format. Completion of a process like this could take anywhere from one month to a year or more depending on the data. Now, you have the technology though a website scraper to complete this process in less than a day.
