    Dear programmers,We are looking for a long-term partnership with a programmer or a programming firm for ad-hoc assitance and would appreciate offers from such only. The first task is described below:We are an economic consultancy assisting a European ferry provider with their pricing of tickets. To do that, we compare their own prices to their competitor"s prices by scraping information about ticket prices from both their own website and their competitor"s. However, our current web scraping code is in error state, because one of the ferry providers has changed its website. We would thus like assistance with respect to writing a new code that can scrape price information from the website or modify our existing code.The specifications of the task are:(1) Prices from the following websites need to be scraped: http:\/\/www.dfdsseaways.co.uk and http:\/\/www.dfdsseaways.nl.(2) The following prices need to be scraped: (i) Two specific routes per website, (ii) one-way tickets only, (iii) two and four adult tickets, (iv) specific dates or date intervals, and (v) all cabin types. Very importantly, the price of one car must be included in the scraped ticket price.(3) The prices need to be scraped to an Excel-file. (Currently, this is done via an iMacro-program, but you can also use pure VBA-coding if possible).(4) The code need to be incorporated into our existing Excel spreadsheet.Please provide both a fixed price, a per hour price, and an estimate of how long it will take to complete the task.NOTE: Please only submit offers if you are familiar with iMacro!Kind regards,Ulrik Haagen NielsenConsultant, Incentivewww.incentive.dk

    Project Description:We place regular ads in various categories on Gumtree throughout the day.Main objective is auto post, and repeat the adverts in cycle, without being in front of the computer, should skip errors and run* In case of error, process should not stop, it should continue* We would require total control over clearing cookies, cache and history, before adverts are posted in loop we should be able to define after how many times of posting an advert we want to clear data Main process starts from Login from registered email account, than1. The solution must allow us to specify and edit advert headings, prices, description, location in UK * Once these fields defined, it should save them, so can be used next time without entering them * Should allow to edit the fields once definedFields required in one add: * Title * Price * Description * Location (which would be selected randomly every time from a pre defined file) * Images 2. There will be a range of adverts which we need to be able to add to and delete from, so the solution must cycle through them Should create an interface where all these fields can be seen in excel type of format, so we can delete or edit them,3. Photos will need to be uploaded - different for each ad, This is the difficult bit, you need to test gumtree to know how they upload picture, with time their server changes and software will not be able to upload the picture, so we will need the coding bit as well with guidance how to make changes to adapt with gumtree website change, so we can make the changes our self, since last freelancer left us on our own, did not provide the update, and the whole software has gone wasted.4. We must be able to specify frequency (every xx minutes, hours, loop cycle for the adds) 5. We must be able to choose posting categories and form content *another field which is important while we save an add, predefined posting category id ( example bed, sofa, wardrobe )6.Edit different emails into adds for posting, option of using different emails * one email login for gumtree would use defined adverts already ( with seperate cookies ) ( like private browsing) * we should be able to use as many emails as we want to be logged in and posting adds ( seperate to each other) * we should abe able to use the sofatware on as many computers as we want any further details required feel free to ask

    I would like to extract directory information from a web site into Excel. The directory lists employees at firms in an industry. . The site limits results available for a single search, hence the need for automation. The approximate size of the database will be 3000 firms, 50 employees each (with a large range), about 5 fields per employee.and 5 fields per firm. This is a single extraction -- no subsequent crawling needed.The scrape must be completed by Wednesday April 16.

Experience

Hovenation INC

Our company took advantage of loopholes in Google's Search algorithm. I was in charge of deciding what assumptions to make and risks to takes in hopes of finding algorithmic loopholes that could be taken advantage of. This went very very well for a couple of years, but soon before panda and penguin google closed the loopholes we were using and I ultimately decided being that I have learned so much about web scraping that I am going to focus my business on that.
