How to do Web Scraping in Bulk from same Website

basically how to do Web Scraping?

Consider you are browsing a website with very many pages in it, you kind of like it and now you want to have all that content/data for yourself.

Saving it manually would be a very hectic task or next to impossible.

You see a similarity in the webpages, basic Client-Server-Database interactions.

Consider the links of webpages are in sequence

for eg:

www.examplewebsite.com/aaa

www.examplewebsite.com/aab

www.examplewebsite.com/aac

www.examplewebsite.com/aad

www.examplewebsite.com/zzx

www.examplewebsite.com/zzy

www.examplewebsite.com/zzz

Each and every link/webpage has same html id/class

for eg:

[hash]name

[hash]price

.photo

How can you as a client PROGRAMME to save the necessary data from each webpage

i.e.

the programme should generate links, send request to server, receive request & data from server, save relevant data (by extracting) on client memory

You can use many libraries available online for example Try BeautifulSoup in Python. It has good documentation as to how to go about scrapping information from a particular webpage.
