There's lots of data on the Web and plenty of ways to "scrape" it -- to mine information from a website and store it in the format you want. Even if you're comfortable coding, though, it can be a pain to figure out how to extract data from a complex HTML page.

Import.io is one of several products and services that aim to simplify the process. What's compelling about Import.io is that it's both free and fairly easy to use -- even for sites that use JavaScript and present results in multiple pages, such as USAJobs, the federal jobs site.
