    The biggest problem that Diffbot solved for us is reducing our time-to-market. Diffbot enabled us to rapidly build our product so that we could test it with an initial set of pilot customers. With Diffbot we were able to focus on solving problems for our customers instead of worrying about building or scaling a web scraper from scratch. As a result, we were able to get initial traction within a month of coming up with the idea and can now easily support the new customers that we are acquiring.

    + PROS: Before using Diffbot, we considered building our own scraping system. This would have cost us at least 4 weeks of development time up-front and 1-2 days of maintenance cost on a monthly basis. The time itself is valuable, but even more so when considering the opportunity cost of what that time could be spent doing in an early-stage startup. After integrating Diffbot, we have that time back to building our business, developing exciting features for our customers and growing our customer base. The API has been reliable and the data that Diffbot is retrieving adds value to our customers with every content brief that is created.
    - CONS: No issues that we've experienced so far, it does exactly what we need it to.

    As a technical recruiter, it’s really important that the data I’m sourcing is accurate and up-to-date. I haven’t found a platform with more detailed (or accurate) information anywhere else. I’ve tried others but Diffbot seems to aggregate the latest information which gives me a huge advantage over other recruiters.

    + PROS: You can find anyone! They've got the most up-to-date accurate info that is incredibly helpful when trying to source niche candidates for high-level development jobs. It feels like I have an unfair advantage with the data I'm able to pull.
    - CONS: Took a little getting used to but their support team was really helpful and guided me in the query building process to find the right qualified candidates.

    “Simple app for easily extracting data from the web”

    + PROS: The integration of Diffbot with our platform helped us to easily extract data from articles in the web
    - CONS: It was a bit unstable from time to time, but if it did - it was for very short period (and still...)

    “Powerful scraping tool with necessary developer support ”

    + PROS: The basically out of the box crawler could scrape a bunch of data quickly. There were tons of features that clearly would be valuable with the help of internal developers.
    - CONS: The initial output was generally pretty convoluted which required a lot of cleaning before being usable. It also required our own dev resources in order to really get the most out of it.

    “Diffbot Increases Efficiency”

    + PROS: Prior to using Diffbot, we relied primarily on RSS feeds and a web scraping tool that is based on the visual layout and HTML of a webpage. We were very dependent on X Paths to get the data we wanted. We find that the Diffbot crawlers are more stable in the long term because they are not as impacted by website design changes. This saves us a lot of time that we would otherwise be spending on maintenance.
    - CONS: The two issues that are most challenging for us are: 1. Diffbot does not recognize PDF documents, and we frequently would like to ingest them as articles. 2. We find it difficult to troubleshoot a crawler in situations where it is not bringing in data or it is not bringing in the data we are expecting.

    “social media and news monitoring”

    + PROS: Diffbot provides great APIs, technical resource, and overall service. Their technical resources are one of the most advanced and highly accurate. Diffbot's team keeps their APIs up to date with social media's rapid evolution. The customer support is equally helpful and very friendly. They are very willing to work with flexible scenarios, accommodate needs and low budgets for small research groups, provide demo and trial accounts to experiment. Overall, they are the best social media data provider and analysis company, in my experience of over a decade.
    - CONS: This is more like a suggestion. Diffbot has several excellent capabilities and they are constantly improving and adding new features. Current customers and perhaps prospective ones too would benefit from a weekly/monthly newsletter, or social media updates, about these new developments.
