About us

Who are we?

Data extraction.io is a big data blog operating as part of Octoparse. You probably wonder why we create another blog that attaches to the official one. Octoparse is niche-centric and techie that only benefits a small group of readers. In reality, there are probably more people who do not acknowledge the power of big data that needs to be educated, or they probably just don’t know how to get started and generate the most value for the sake of their careers. 

Our mission is to help all readers get better at what they do with the power of big web data. Whether you are a freelancer, student, business owner, or even a daydreamer who’s at a nascent stage, this is the place to share your stories and ideas to empower others. 

We don’t set rigorous rules to limit your ways to inspire the readers. But we would encourage all contributors to propose content focusing on web scraping, programming, web data applications, big data innovations, entrepreneurship which can add meaningful values to people’s life

Submission rules

We praise the diversity of voices without degrading the quality of work. In doing so, we want to share clear guidelines to help your articles get published. As you submit articles, you are agreeing to comply with all the rules:

“By words we learn thoughts, and by thoughts we learn life.”

Jean Baptiste Girard

  1. You own the content that you create. And therefore, you are responsible for the content you post. 
  2. No Plagiarism. We respect the copyrights of others, so do to you. We understand sometimes we are exhausted and brains get drained, but don’t transplant people’s ideas entirely and claim to be yours.
  3. Do the research. Your perspectives matter, but stop the firehose of assertions without backend referrals or sources. We welcome you to join our forum community if you are full of ideas!
  4. Limit the hyperlinks. Don’t jam your articles with irrelevant links. We accept link-exchange for SEO purposes if it helps your traffic, but we place readers’ experience at the first place. Make sure your articles have no more than 3 hyperlinks.

To become a contributor, please submit your articles to our editor ashley@octoparse.com along with your resume and Linkedin profile which would help us identify your qualifications.

Once you submit, we will carefully read and review your article. Once your article gets published, we will add you as a contributor with your name and profile picture in the blog.
