Being able to access data from sources that you normally wouldn’t be able to access through conventional search engines is an advantage. Think of accessing data like fishing in the ocean.
You might be able catch plenty of fish with the equipment available to you (i.e. Google, Bing, Yahoo)–but you want to catch the fish in the deeper waters that no one else is catching in the places no one else is thinking of looking. Having BrightPlanet at your service is like having the ultimate fishing net that can reach all of those fish within seconds.
Harvesting data from the Deep Web is a unique BrightPlanet solution that uses our extraction tool suited for large-scale website searches.
Deep Web harvests are the solution if you want quality content from a curated list of sources. For the sake of time, you do not want to spend hours of your day performing complex Google queries or scraping through websites looking for a single content source.
What Does Deep Web Mean?
The Deep Web refers to data stored in a website’s internal database. This data is typically not accessible via search engines, which index the Surface Web. Consequently, Deep Web data is accessible only by issuing queries to a website’s search form.
Once the query is issued, BrightPlanet extracts the search results. Our Harvester then detects “next” pages to ensure you receive all relevant documents.
How do Deep Web Harvests Work?
In order to get access to Deep Web sources, BrightPlanet’s Data Acquisition Engineer team configures each source.
