Hello,

I am new in the scraping universe and would like to ask, which scraping method / product would suit my needs best: I would like to find out from forums and social platforms, if certain brands are being discussed at all there, and if so, with which adjectives they are being connected / mentioned. Am I on the right track, trying to solve this over scraping? Thanks a lot for your help.

Hi Seschulz,

Your project seems very interesting, and I think there's no one simple answer to your inquiry.

Currently we have two options to offer: Use Portia and deploy your Scrapy Projects.


Portia is our open source visual scraper, it is made for scraping simple sites, learn the beautiful "art of crawling" and performs simple and middle size projects with almost no programming knowledge.

You can start by reading: http://help.scrapinghub.com/portia/using-portia-20-the-complete-beginners-guide

Scrapy is a powerful crawler developed and maintained by our founders. It requires more programming knowledge but the results can be outstanding. The best part, is that you can deploy your projects for free in our platform and automate your project in a very nice and easy way. I suggest you to start with the tutorial:

https://doc.scrapy.org/en/latest/intro/tutorial.html#scrapy-tutorial

If you need further assistance, you can always hire our experts or ask for our datasets service:

They can save you a huge amount of time and resources.


Kind regards,

Pablo
