Web-Scraping Made Easy With ScrapeStack

By Samuel Oloruntoba

At a particular point or another, you may want to build a simple bot for scraping website data. For example, on a link sharing website, you may want users to be able to see a meta preview of the what the shared link is about without the user needing to waste time visiting the URL.

Some of its key features include it being:

  • Free to start
  • They currently handle over a billion requests monthly
