Data scraping does not happen in a vacuum
Once scraped from the web data can be manipulated to perform different functions. Over time, websites are constantly changing. The parameters of the scraping need to keep apace.
Data scraping tools can frequently break when changes to the website are made.
Some sites have used techniques to make their websites scrape-proof.
Technically it is possible to work around all sorts of problems like this.
Is Web Scraping Legal?
There are misconceptions about web scraping as the reputation of some software affects the industry. Just like other tools, you can use it for good and for bad.
Most web scraping techniques are only able to reach data that is publicly accessible. Maybe there is data which requires the user to login first to access. In this case, web scraping is likely unethical yet not technically illegal.
What is the cost of a web scraping developer like Lumen?
Most companies outsource their web scraping. If you do quick research you will see a big range of prices for different web scraping developers and freelancers.
If you rely on freelancers for your custom data scraping, it will be much less reliable than an established company with 25+ years of software development, such as Lumen.
At the end of the day, it depends on the complexity of the project. We have successfully delivered long-term projects for enterprises which require high-scale, high-quality data.
The best way of understanding the price of data scraping would be to speak to one of our consultants.
