Need to collect information from your competitors' websites? Do you want to be aware of all the news, choose the most relevant offers, acquaint visitors of your own resource with new products? There are several methods for solving this problem.
Method one - self-collection of information manually. It takes a lot of time, as you have to visit many different resources to find the right information. This is what ordinary Internet users do in search of the right product or weather forecast. If you are considering the World Wide Web as a platform for promoting your products or services, this method is definitely not suitable for you.
Method two: the use of robots - special scripts for searching, ranking and organizing the information you need. When set up correctly, such programs can be very effective - it feels like a person is selecting the information for you. It is impossible to choose a universal script, since it adapts to a specific task. Therefore, we develop such inpidually to order, depending on the tasks.
Features of work
In order to determine the benefits of automatically collecting and sorting information using robot scripts, you should learn more about how they work. The robot constantly functions on the network, masquerading as a search engine. Thanks to this robot, any information posted on the sites is available. Even if the resource hides certain data, scripts can easily get it and pass it on to the owner. It should be noted that robots are not recommended for downloading personal information of a competitor and its customers. The setting is carried out specifically to receive introductory information related to a particular product, so no ethical or legal norms are violated.
Multifunctionality of robot scripts
Also robots scripts can perform other tasks. For example, check availability, change certain files in a timely manner, monitor the emergence of new information. Often this is done by a whole series of controllers, each of which performs a specific task. This is not always convenient, and besides, it takes time. A properly registered and configured robot is capable of simultaneously performing a series of tasks, information on which can be viewed using the icon hidden in the system tray. Due to this, it becomes possible to significantly reduce the time for carrying out the required work.
