[url removed, login to view] Data Extraction is growing rapidly. I have several active projects, several waiting to be started, and I've been turning projects down because of the workload.
What I need is someone to work on "parsing modules" for my spider on a per-site, per-spec basis. Your mission would be to find patterns in a page, extract relevant data, insert it into a database. I have extraction tools, HTML parsers, and other code snippets to use in order to simplify this and you are welcome to use your own coding tools. I simply don't have the time to keep up with demand lately. My database abstraction layer is simple to use... all you will need to know is the query to insert the data you find.
The spider does it all except the per-project requirements and I can't keep up with the volume of recent business. The spider will give you the HTML code from the target page and you fill a database with the required info, the spider does the rest over and over.
I will be hosting the spider and running it on my servers. I just need a plugin module (include file) that will take the page data and do various things with the HTML content.
For the sake of this bid... what would you charge to list products from the final product page on [url removed, login to view] I can gauge your bids from this baseline. Efficient, optimized PHP code is STRONGLY preferred. Long-term business relationship sought.
