In 10 minutes you'll understand Data Miner basics, like how to scrape simple data using public recipes and right clicking. As well as downloading and saving the data.
In 30 minutes you will be able to extract large collections of data and do multi-layer scraping by creating a Data Miner Job
To use a Public Recipe, you must first find the data you want to scrape. Data Mine can only extract data when it's visible in your browser.
Next, open up the data miner extension and find the recipe that best describes your data. Then click on it.
Once the recipe runs, click Download and open it in excel.
Multiple page results is very common for search pages. Data Miner can automatically click and scrape multiple pages by finding the next page button and clicking it.
To start Next Page, select a search recipe that has Next Page set up (indicated by a book symbol). Then in the top panel of th Data Miner Viewer, click Next Page, then Start and watch the rows accumulate.
Once you've accumulated enough rows, simply press Stop.
For basic tables, you won't even need to select a recipe. Data Miner is capable of analysing basic tables and extracting data automatically with right clicking.
Once the table has been analyzed and scraped, download the data and click save to use later.
