Too Long; Didn't Read

Web crawling is essentially the use of an internet bot - also known as crawlers or spiders - that “crawls” the internet and gathers pages and data to index or create collections. Web scraping is a technique for extracting specific data from websites and exporting it to a local workstation in Excel, Excel, or SQL format. Web crawling uses a spider (or crawling agent) that locates and obtains information from the deeper layers of the World Wide Web by crawling through every nook and cranny of the Internet. Scrapy is a high-performance web crawling and scraping framework commonly used for web crawling.
