Actually I am a web developer and I had a project where client also needed the data to be filled up from sites like alibaba, justdial, olx etc. I have come to octoparse searching for those data extractors so that I can get the data as I wanted and then upload it to my database. Well believe me, it didnt go well in the first attempt. it was when i gone thru all the sample cases and the videos that I have understood how to properly use the software. For olx.com , justdial it was fine but had a lot of problem with alibaba.com . I had to get the phone number which requires a login and it took one complete day to get succeed at the end, and that too with local extraction, but still it suffices me. So in this way I was able to collect fair amount of data from here and could use it on my client's site. The Xpath tool helped me a lot in justdial site and the cookie tool in specific, for alibaba. I think speed is also good but could even be better. Hope my case study would guide new octoparse.com software users a direction of use / faith in the software.
