Scraping hidden details using WebHarvy

WebHarvy allows you to scrape hidden fields in websites which are displayed only when you click on a link or button. The ‘Click’ option in the Capture window can be used to display such ‘click to display’ fields. The following video shows the process.

The video below shows how contact details from Craigslist listing pages can be extracted using this feature.

WebHarvy also allows you to scrape data from the HTML of the page. For example, the following video shows how geo location (latitude, longitude) can be extracted from yellow page listings (map details) from its HTML – this data is not visible in browser.
