    I've been researching sites that scrape data for statistical purposes and have come across a few such as Statscrop, Statmyweb, and Uglystat

    My question is what are they using to gather their statistics and why is it they are legal?

    I realize Google is the biggest web scraper on the planet but websites have no choice but to allow them for traffic purposes but what about others?

    I don't have any coding experience (sorry), but I kinda think they are using Ajax, PHP, and a few API's.

    Thanks,
