We have an awesome piece of news for all of our creators and builders: we have formed a partnership with Bright Data whereby we work closely together in serving the needs of data publishers from scraping and organizing data to publishing and monetizing. Our users can now get quality data from any public website with the help of Data Collector, the world’s #1 web data platform run by Bright Data.
Web data collection, also known as web scraping, used to be complicated: it required a team of data acquisition specialists with expertise in proxy management and web data extraction. With our new partnership in place, you can save time, effort, and resources. Data Collector is layered over Bright Data’s industry-leading, patented peer network technology, with the ability to tap into difficult-to-access public websites. Bright Data has proven to be an expert in overcoming obstacles and roadblocks so you can acquire your datasets without any headaches.
Acquiring data with Data Collector is super easy, just follow these three steps:
- Choose the websites to collect from.
- Select the frequency: real-time or scheduled, and delivery format: JSON, CSV, HTML, or Microsoft Excel – use CSV for the smoothest process to import into TrueSource
- Decide where to send the data: webhook, email, Amazon S3, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, SFTP, or API – use any of the cloud storage to import into TrueSource.
It’s really easy to acquire data with Data Collector: you can get started right away with templates: choose from hundreds of pre-made data collection templates, download already-collected datasets, or build your own collector.
So if you wanted to create a data-centric application or website with TrueSource but have had problems figuring out how to access or keep fresh your data, do we have a solution for you: learn more about Bright Data on the link below.
