Scraping Amazon Product Data
When you go to Amazon's website and perform a search for a particular class of products (for ex: Mobile Phones), a lot of products are displayed in the search results which spans over multiple pages. By following each product link, we can view additional details regarding them. WebHarvy lets you automatically scrape product data displayed by Amazon. This includes (not limited to):
Product name, Price, Images (download multiple product images), Bullet Points (description), Product Description, ASIN, Dimension, Weight, Item/Model number, Reviews, Rating, Best Seller Rank under various categories etc.
Watch the following video which shows how most of the above data can be scraped from Amazon product listings using WebHarvy.
Since Amazon has varying page layouts for various products, and since the amount of details present can vary from product to product, the Capture Following Text Technique is used to obtain data accurately from product details pages. This helps to get data based on a heading text, irrespective of the location of the text on the page. This is used to select product data like ASIN, Price, Shipping Weight etc. Know More
Data scraped can be easily exported as a local file (CSV, TSV, XML, JSON formats supported) or to a database (MS SQL, MySQL). There is no limit to the amount of data which can be extracted and exported. Listings which span across multiple pages can be easily extracted.
