Project Description:
I am looking to scrape information off of the webpages in the attached excel spreadsheet (all 763 of them, or however many have websites next to their names in the excel file; example = www.18rabbits.com)

Why I am hiring a freelancer.
1. I want the MISSION STATEMENT for each company (eg - we are an environmentally friendly clothing company that loves farmers…).
2. If this is not possible, most of these companies have an 'About Us' page. What I'd then like to do is scrape the text from their 'About Us' page (or Home Page if no 'About Us' or comparable page exists)

The text information scraped from the webpages should be placed by the freelancer in a new column (or columns) in the attached excel file (exactly how is up to the freelancer).

I have added the excel sheet that we will be using for this project. PLEASE SEND A SAMPLE OF THE FIRST 10 WEBSITES SO THAT I CAN AWARD THE PROJECT.

Skills required:
Data Entry, Excel, Web Scraping
Additional Files: Mission+Statement+-+Freelance.xls
