Project Description

Hey Programmers...

I'm looking for someone who can do a type of "scraping" tool (somewhat). It needs to be able to do 2 different things...on with youtube and one with google.

1) I'm looking to be able to scrape for and add a whole bunch of youtube video embed codes for a particular topic in spintax...

So for example...

I would type in a keyword such as "finding a real estate agent" - the program would then go search youtube for related videos (however many I specify), and scrape a bunch of their embed codes and put it in spintax.

So if I typed in "real estate" for the topic and "3" for the amount of videos I wanted embed codes scraped for, it would come up with something like this...

{ | | }

*NOTE: I had to put spaces between the code so it will show up (hopefully). I'll give the exact code in private message (it may still not show up). If it's showing as {|||} or something similar above, that is not the correct code...

So basically i went and searched for real estate in youtube and pulled 3 embed codes for 3 different real estate videos. So that's what the program would do, go in and pull the embed codes for X amount of videos and then put them between the spintax.

So that would be the first function of the program.

The second function would be similar...

2) This function would basically do the same thing, but search google for a certain term and pull X amount of URLs in between the code (like , and put them in between spintax..

So if I entered the topic "real estate" and put in to get 3 URLs, it would go and search google for "real estate" and then pull 3 URLs, put them in the , then put it in between spintax. For example it would give me back something like...

{ | | }

*NOTE: I had to put spaces between the code so it will show up (hopefully). I'll give the exact code in private message (it may still not show up). If it's showing as {|||} or something similar above, that is not the correct code...

The program should NOT pull from the local results (the "A", "B", "C", etc)...I'm looking for it to pull high quality sites, preferrably with high page rank (let me know if this is possible to do).

So it should do both of these functions (or a program for each function, either is fine).

Please make sure you put *READ* in your project message to me so that I know you read and understand the directions. If I don't see *READ* I won't even consider your bid...I need someone who pays attention to details...good luck!

Oh, and please let me know the details of how difficult this will be, how much you're charging (if it's more than $250 please just let me know - as I wasn't sure if I should pick $30-$250 or $250-$750), and any other details you can give me. Thanks...
