Project Description

------------------------------------------------------- Project Description ------------------------------------------------------- This project will extract data from the following 3 sites: [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] [url removed, login to view] For each site, I want to input a variable search keyword(s), and extract all the results into a database. For all 3 sites, the data can be obtained by going to the main page of the site and doing a search in "business name", while leaving all other fields blank. ------------------------------------------------------- The Data To Be Extracted (Not avaible in every listing] ------------------------------------------------------- SuperPages: business name, business description, website, address, phone, fax, email YellowPages: name, address, phone Switchboard: name, address, phone, fax ------------------------------------------------------- Output Format ------------------------------------------------------- I would like the data to be in MS Excel format or Comma Delimited which I can import into Excel. ------------------------------------------------------- Features ------------------------------------------------------- I would like to be able to perform these functions as well, once all the data is extracted: **Go through existing data (all 3 sites combined) and remove duplicates: Duplicates found by an exact match of: [Zip code AND Business Name] or [Street Address] I am on a short budget so I am not looking for any extra features... just the basic functionality described above. For the sample search: "auto repair", you should get the same results as I did: [url removed, login to view] --> 37,363 results [url removed, login to view] --> 34,771 results [url removed, login to view] --> 248,050 results
