ImportFromWeb is an add-on for Google Sheets that extends the list of functions provided by the platform. It is a perfect alternative to the native function ImportXML.
It adds a new function =IMPORTFROMWEB() to your spreadsheets, which is a powerful, yet easy-to-use, Web Scraper.
Using =IMPORTFROMWEB(), you import any data from any website in your spreadsheet in real time.

It is the process of collecting structured Web data in an automated way in order to manipulate it and bring out new knowledge. The reasons to use Web scraping are numerous: price comparison, SEO analysis, Stock Market monitoring, Social Media tracking, …
Extracting data is one thing, but crossing data sources, filtering, sorting tables, building charts and pivot tables is likely what you need to squeeze all the value that data can offer.
This is why we have created an original tool that works natively with Google Sheets.
We believe spreadsheets are the best instruments to sort, filter, crunch, cross data in an easy way, without requiring technical skills.
