About article extraction APIs

Article Extraction is the process of extracting article content from news articles, blogs, or web pages. This is a form of web scraping specific to news articles, press releases, etc.

What is Article Extraction?

This process automatically extracts “clean” text and other content from web sources. Service providers make an article API available for developers to use.

How does an Article Extraction API work?

Article extractor APIs simplify the web scraping process by providing developers API endpoints to use instead of having to build all of the components from scratch. With a developer account, you can get started right away. Typically the process goes like this:

  1. Perform an HTTP GET request on the relevant endpoint. Usually, you will need to provide an authentication token and a URL of the web page you want to be processed. Depending on the API service, you can also provide other parameters to specify different options.

  2. The API will return a response, often in JSON format, with the result of the request. Typically the API will return the title of the article, the full text, article date, and more. The API may also return related images or videos depending on the options selected.

  3. Developers can use the response to process the data or store the data however they want for future use.

Who is Article Extraction for?

Developers who want to programmatically extract clean text from news articles, blogs, or other sources of content online. Some use cases include content categorization, keyword extraction, and sentiment analysis.

Why is Article Extraction important?

Article Extraction APIs save developers time by providing endpoints that they can reuse again and again. That way, developers don’t have to develop all of the code necessary to perform the loading and extraction of content.

What you can expect from Article Extractors?

Different API providers will offer various features, but the common features include requesting and receiving a clean text from specified URLs.

Are there examples of free Article Extraction APIs?

Several article API providers offer free trials for developers to experiment with API features. TextRazor does offer a completely free plan. However, the free tier limits the number of daily requests and the number of max concurrent requests.
