Webhose.io provides on-demand access to structured web data that anyone can consume. We empower you to build, launch, and scale big data operations - whether you’re a budding entrepreneur working out of the garage, a researcher in the science lab, or an executive at the helm of a Fortune 500 company. Start for free by sampling the Webhose.io API, and then consume the same web data that powers global media analytics and research companies. We structure, store, and index millions of web pages per day in vertical data pools (e.g. news, blogs, and online discussions). Just define the data you need and scale up as you grow. This way, you can focus on what you do best instead of wasting time and money crawling, scraping, and extracting web data yourself.
The Webhose.io API now includes access to dark web data and broadcast data feeds. The Dark Web Data Feed provides access to anonymized web content available on TOR. The Broadcast Data Feed provides access to transcripts of U.S. television and radio programming, and some Canadian station programming.
This tutorial shows you how to create a free email alert feed using the Webhose.io API and MailChimp. We’ll start with a basic query to monitor content mentioning Donald Trump. Then we’ll add some filtering parameters to the API query and show how to plug the API URL into a MailChimp RSS campaign.
Thousands of researchers, entrepreneurs, and executives need to tap into Web data to deliver insights. Access to structured Web data tends to be limited at best, and heavily gated by billion dollar corporations. Consuming crawled web data with an API usually makes more sense for businesses.
