There are several ways to extract URLs from web pages using web scraping techniques, but here are some common methods:

  1. Using Regular Expressions: Regular expressions (regex) can be used to search for patterns that match URLs on a web page. The regular expression pattern can be written to extract all URLs on a page or specific URLs that match a certain pattern.
  2. Using Beautiful Soup: Beautiful Soup is a Python library that allows you to parse HTML and XML documents. You can use it to extract URLs from web pages by searching for anchor tags ( <a> ) that contain the href attribute.
  3. Using Scrapy: Scrapy is a Python framework that simplifies the web scraping process. You can use it to extract URLs by defining the XPath or CSS selector that identifies the HTML elements containing the URLs.
  4. Using Selenium: Selenium is a tool used for the automated testing of web applications. It can also be used for web scraping, and it allows you to interact with the web page as if you were using a web browser. You can use Selenium to extract URLs by finding the anchor tags and getting the value of the href attribute.

It is important to note that while web scraping can be a powerful tool for extracting data, it is important to respect website owners' terms of use and not to violate any copyright or intellectual property laws.
