Here is what I am looking for:
I would like a simple website scraper able to extract data from Craigslist.
The goal is to be able to extract information from the Real Estate For Sale by Owner and For Rent by Owner Sections of Craigslist.
I should be able to do the following with the application:
Create a campaign name
Select Sub City
Select sub Category
Select Price range: (from:$_______ To: $________
Filter by Keywords (Separated by comma)
The application needs to extract the following information
Phone Number (if included)
Link (url of ad)
Address (if included)
Export to Excel CSV and email
It would be great if this could also be adapted to extract the same information from other classified websites such as Backpage.com, Kijiji, Oodle, etc... but I need to have it working on Craigslist first. If that complicates this project, we can add the other sites later.
It should be able to extract data from all postings in the category in a 24 hour period
The program needs to have an easy user interface. (I'm not that smart so seriously it needs to be easy)
Thanks so much
