    Advice on Web Scraping

    Hi Everyone, really new to the forum and not massively but I work with coders everyday and I know that this is something that you geniuses will know.

    Me and a friend are starting a new business venture and we are looking for a web site scraping tool that will scrape a results web page for data and be able to put it into an Excel spreadsheet for analysis.

    I've heard that you can code one your self in Python so the option would be to pay a Python coder to make one for me or I'm not sure if there is a reliable tool available that we could customize and use for what we need.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance

    1. Load data piecemeal
    2. Take maximum
    3. Parse pessimistically
    4. Gather statistics
