Program needed. I need to have data scraped/extracted from a classifieds site and then imported into my classifieds website database. The purpose is to populate my website with Ads.
My selected candidate for extraction is http://www.manta.com Alternate sites are http://www.usfreeads.com or http://www.olx.com or http://www.adlandpro.com There are thousands of classified sites where data can be extracted from.
The extracted data will be imported to my website www.millionads.org
For receiving the listings on my site the needed 6 fields are: .(EMAIL ID). .(URL address).
(CATEGORY). .(THUMBNAIL of PHOTO or Url ). .(TITLE - one line). .(DESCRIPTION - 3 lines).
I want a script that will allow me to gather classifieds one category at a time.
Once I select the category/subcategory to be extracted the script should ask me how many classified ads I want to gather.
All extracted classified ads should be shown in a file or the results page. For my selection and approval. of some or all the extracted listings.
From here I should be able to 'Import' the Ad into my site. I should be able to select the category where the Ad will go on my site and then click import.
If the script tries to import any Ad and it finds a duplicate email already in my database, then I should be able to reject that email Ad.
Please show me a test or demo by extracting and placing on my website a sample of 20 Ads. If satisfactory then the job can be awarded to you.
For clarifications contact me and also show examples of other extraction/scraping scripts you have done in the past.
