Data Mine Websites at the Click of a Pink Button

Posted on 6.10.2014

Manually searching Web pages for specific data points is tiresome, tedious and aggravating all at the same time.

Yet, at one point or another most Web workers have done it. However, thanks to Import.io the drawn out process has become a lot easier.

Import.io is a data mining and collection tool that inspects Web pages for data points and neatly organizes them into a table. The tool saves all work on the cloud so it never takes up any additional memory space on the users computer.

To use Import.io’s tools, Web workers must download their browser from the cloud and install it on their computer. Once the browser is installed and opened workers type in the URL of the website they want mined and press the pink “io” button on the upper right-hand corner of the browser. Workers are also able to integrate the live data into their applications after it is published on Import.io’s platform.

Import.io is free for personal use however if used for business or by enterprises there is a fee.
