We are looking at doing some data scraping collecting data from various online websites in structured format, these will be the daily deals websites, which we will need to get relevant details such as
• deal on offer
• number of deals bought
• saving percentage / saving dollar value
• company name
• time remaining
We will want to be scraping websites hourly, then monitoring the data to find trending data, show the best deals on offer and being able to profile each deal based on a number of criteria such as popularity, time left in offer, how much traction the deal is receiving, location based on postcodes, and distance from user.
