Data crawling tools can have many purposes. SiteLucent crawlers collect data from eCommerce product detail pages. Every day, our software drops by worldwide webshops and marketplaces. Why? Because product detail pages are full of eCommerce touchpoints that are helpful to monitor for you as an eCommerce professional. The point is that it takes you hours to check thousands of eCommerce product pages manually. You sure have better things to do!
A product detail page is a web page on an eCommerce site. It presents a specific product. On a product detail page, we usually find a product title, product images, videos, a product description, price, specifications, and reviews. SiteLucent gathers this info continuously, whereby opportunities for improvement get uncovered for eCommerce teams.
SiteLucent daily monitors millions of product pages all over the web. We scrape and organize all data (anything a shopper can potentially see) and calculate over 70 different metrics such as:
Our software makes the eCommerce data that is being crawled daily, transparent and applicable through visualizations, calculations and reports. This is what you see in your dashboards and widgets.
Widgets are small applications that visualize your data and thus make it easy understandable and applicable. SiteLucent currently uses 6 different visualization types: KPI, scatter plot, line chart, bar chart, data table and product overview.
Besides visualization type, a widget can show you different metrics such as content criteria, availability and search rank (as we explained in step 2).
Also the dimension, aggregation, time range and, in case of a data table, the table fields can change per widget.
A precondition for staying ahead of the competition is to offer the best possible presentation and visibility of products on all online shelves. Touch-point monitoring and analysis uncover powerful insights for brands, as well as opportunities to improve customers' experience on all sales channels.
