Web Content Extractor Overview
Scraping data from websites is a common data gathering task. Though covering hundreds of possible application spheres, this job is really a time consuming operation unless you have proper automation software to do this for you. Indeed, hours long copy-pasting of various texts, images, and other data from HTML pages by hand can easily enrage even the most smooth-tempered person. Not to mention low productivity of the manual scraping of web data.
Web Content Extractor is a professional web data extraction software designed not only to perform the most of dull operations automatically, but also to greatly increase productivity and effectiveness of the web data scraping process. Web Content Extractor is highly accurate and efficient for extracting data from websites. It offers you a friendly, wizard-driven interface. Not a single string of code is required!
Ultimate Extractor for Every Task
Whenever you need to extract some typical data from multiple web pages, Web Content Extractor is the ultimate solution. Extract product pricing data, grab real estate data; parse Forex and stock market figures; extract book, song or movie information; gather news and articles on a certain topic; extract web content on hotels or car rentals in a given country; collect information from dating sites or job web-resources – this is merely a short list of Web Content Extractor possible applications. Of course, you are not limited with the above; the tool perfectly works with any kind of web information and thanks to fine customization it can deal with any website whatsoever.
Wide Exporting Capabilities
In addition to its immerse extracting power, the program also features wide exporting capabilities. You can save gathered data into a plain CSV or text file, export to HTML or XML, as well as to put the data right into a given database format using the built-in possibility to export information into MSSQL/MySQL script or directly into any ODBC-compatible destination.
This allows you to apply the scraped data immediately – say, perform an in-depth analysis using spreadsheet application, create a summary report and upload it via FTP, or import the data into your own application or service's database.
Web Content Extractor provides serious automation of the website scraping task. Usually, you only need to specify a basic extraction pattern (done in few clicks too) and run the extraction process. The program automatically scans the provided URLs and scrapes all the info that meets the specified template. And command line options allow to set the program to work with any third-party scheduler.
The program doesn't try to outsmart a user though. Yes, it determines elements on a page and the type of the data field suggesting the extraction results as a preview, but you can always make necessary changes or adjust the program's choice manually if needed.
Versatility through Advanced Customization
The scope of Web Content Extractor application is wide not only due to its functions, but also thanks to advanced customization capabilities it offers. Indeed, while making the bulk of the work for you, Web Content Extractor still reserves the place for manual tuning. Crawler options, customizable extraction patterns, adjustable data fields let you tailor the tool to your very specific needs.

After agonizing over how to automate a very important web data project, I can easily say this was the best $99 I've ever spent on any software. The best part is that Michael had my project specified, written and delivered in an hour! Now I have a template that I can use to learn more, after already delivering the critical data.
I would just like to compliment your phenomenal employee Michael. His turn time and professionalism is unmatched. I must be honest. I truly believed when I sent the email out for a hope and a prayer for help that I wouldn’t get a response. However, I was pleasantly surprised that not only was my email returned, Michael took the time to explain the program to me and how to fix my problem. Truly unmatched professional service that I will recommend over and over again.
I would like to thank the team for this wonderful Software. Its made life a lot simple and is far easier to use than any other scrapping tool that I tried and tested.
Just wanted to let you know how much I like your Web Content Extractor program. It is very well done and is saving me all sorts of time. I'm always integrating various software systems and most of the time I am astonished with the amount of the bugs that is out there. This program was a breath of fresh air. I will recommend to any of my colleagues who need this sort of service.
I just wanted to e-mail you about Web Content Extractor. I must say this program is the best $90 dollars. I have spent in a long time. The program is amazing, powerful and intuitive. For the last 3 days I've been putting the program through its paces, having it run continuously, and it is still harvesting results for me. Thanks so much for creating such a great tool. And all the different export options are so handy!.
I am a novice with scraping data and thought I wouldn't even figure out how to make this software work, but to my surprise it only took about 5 minutes to run a project using the free trial. I did a few more test projects then purchased Web Content Extractor the same day. I couldn't be happier with this, and was very surprised how smooth it runs without any bugs and never slowed down my computer. Today my first day using the full version I ran 2 projects and scraped 50,000 and 58,000 records back to back in about 9 hours without any stoppage or monitoring by me. This is a very cool piece of software at a bargain price and I have not even learned all the features yet.
I want to thank you for your rapid response with a terrific solution to my problem. You have provided me with excellent support from the moment that I first tried out the software, and now that I am a user, I must say that the experience I have had with your product and, especially, your customer support, is the best that I have had with any software I have ever purchased.
Web Content Extractor is the most comprehensive and user-friendly tool for data extraction, available on the market. The Newprosoft team go above and beyond in providing individual, fast, and knowledgeable support. This product has been thoughtfully engineered, anticipating the complex data-collection needs of web managers.
I have been extremely satisfied with the follow-up customer service. Very refreshing considering the typical customer service from most online companies.
I am a consistently happy customer of Newprosoft. What a cost and time saver their program is! And from the start their support has been outstanding - even to the point of designing a project specific to my needs that uses their web extraction software. And the program works wonderfully, delivering consistent, clean results every time I use it. I have gone back to them for yet more help in expanding a project, and each time they are enormously helpful. What more could a customer want: a product that delivers flawless results and product support that is quick, thorough and which goes the extra mile?
I purchased a copy of your software last year, and I have found it to be absolutely fantastic. It has saved me so much hard work - thank you!
First of all, your web extractor rocks! we downloaded the trial version and a couple of tests were enough! we've tried several products before including automation anywhere but yours is the the best!!! so we decided to purchase it!
The web scraping software from Newprosoft is probably one the best that I have found for both novices and web developers. The support is also fantastic and very quick. The web scraper can be used for indexing any type of website in great detail with the option to select items on the page that you require by a simple point and click method. For developers, the data extracted can be output in many data formats: SQL, MySql, CSV and more. There is even a preconfigured PHP script to insert the data into your MySql database. Added to this, during export, the size of the actual exported data file can be split into multiple data files for example, 500 records per file so as not to overload your database when uploading the data. I have tried many solutions and this is by far the best to my knowledge and well worth the money.
I have tried 12 other software company that provide similar service (web scraping) and found yours to be the best in many areas.
Web Content Extractor is an amazing product. I have been able to scrape critical information for our business, saving hundreds of hours of work. And, when I have needed assistance, Newprosoft’s support has been fast, helpful and professional
I purchased Web Content Extractor a few weeks ago. Thank you it's brilliant and very simple to use compared to your competetors. I have achieved in a few days what previously took weeks!
I was ready to hire someone from rentacoder.com to write a similar extraction program in PHP or .NET, but the Web Content Extractor program is so much more flexible and easier to use than what a programmer would have created at up to 3 or 4 times the cost of this program. I have even received support on a Saturday for a specific data extraction question, and that’s even before buying the program.
I recently purchased web content extractor and may I say firstly, thank you very much for a brilliant tool that has saved me a lot of time harvesting the data I need.

The software allows me to do things that I simply could not accomplish manually. Not only is it flexible and functional, the support is absolutely outstanding!
I downloaded and evaluated over 15 different “web extraction” programs / utilities this week. I found yours to be the easiest to use, yet still the least expensive. I have now purchased Web Content Extractor and it worked flawlessly for my initial project. Thank you for the template file, it was VERY easy to add on an additional field and simply run! I was so impressed with Web Content Extractor, and your support response, that I purchased another one of your products based solely on description. I didn’t bother to evaluate, I am confident that your company actually creates quality software with quality support.
