Extracting data from websites is easy with Apify.

It saves us time from web scraping since the whole process is done automatically, our data flow is very good, we improve our business objectives because we have the help of Apify.

PROS

I like how easy it is to extract data from different web pages, the templates are very good, the system works smoothly, the proxy service is excellent, the automated web scraping is very effective.

CONS

At first we thought that the configuration would be complicated, but it was not, since the whole process was carried out as normal.

Definitely works and it's worthy

Generally, I was super well-assisted and the system worked 99% of the time, I have experienced only one outage with the SERP Proxy service in more than 12 months using. Considering the difficulty of scraping google I understand that this is very acceptable.

PROS

The proxy feature works very good and the dashboard allows me to watch exactly how I'm spending my money. The marketplace is also very interesting although I haven't used it.

CONS

The proxy service doesn't allow me to choose the country for the requests, so the websites that have IP-related restricted access doesn't work with the Apify service.

Good Tools, Great Support, and Swift Developer Responses

Overall, my experience has been very positive.

PROS

- Trial period with credits to test a few APIs and integrations. The limit was high enough for me to get a good idea of the APIs I want to use and find one that works well for me. - Direct communication with the developers. I had a small issue which was resolved immediately. I also made a suggestion for one more data point to be extracted. It was added in no time, which was fantastic. - Support and Apify tour - the chance to talk to somebody from the team about the platform and for them to recommend sections and features based on your needs and use case. I had a session with Cait. She was brilliant, answered all my questions and suggested functionalities that I hadn't discovered but will definitely make use of going forward. - Swift approval of my application for student discount. Took 2 minutes to get an approval after my application.

CONS

Can't say that I have anything negative to say do far. If I need to add one, that would be price. I have no direct comparison as I have not tested any alternatives. And since I have no time to search for alternative solutions (dissertation deadline fast approaching) and I am happy with this one so far - I will go with it. During my Apify tour, Cait did suggest that students can apply for Student discount. I wish I had known / applied for it before I had moved on to Starter plan. As a student, I am paying for everything by myself and I can already say that I will need to spend $200+ to get the data that I need.

Vendor Response

Hi Boryana, thank you for the detailed review of Apify! We are really happy your experience has been positive so far and that you were also able to utilize the student discount in the end. Best luck with your dissertation thesis!

Scraper for Travel Website

Very easy to use

PROS

Have used this tool to help build a travel website and found their Booking.com and Trip Advisor tools to be very useful.

CONS

Some duplication or minor errors at times so you do need to scan over the export file before importing or manipulating data.

Reason for choosing Apify

It was very quick and easy to start using with the tools already in place.

Reasons for switching to Apify

This tool was easy to use and more affordable than other similar tools.
