Scraping project.

I have alot of content to scrape from the web and embed into xml much that I don't think I can afford to hire someone to scrape all the various sources that I need. I would like to hire somone to teach me how to scrape content.

I am hoping to scrape content, images, and newsfeeds. thank you

I appreciate all the bidders communicating about this project and it is very hard to make a decision because I am having quite a time understanding the concept of scraping and I am realizing that all content, pictures, etc can't be scraped because of cookies, frames, etc.
I can see that scraping is like an art, it seems like its not something I can just jump in and start doing. I believe that I need a bot because I want the content to be fresh.

So the logic behind the bot... Does the bot gather the data from websites and then insert for database and then my content areas link to that? This is an example of what I am trying to accomplish:

I have an info box about a city.

The first tab would contain information about their services

The second tab would contain historical content

The third tab would contain information people involved in the program

The fourth tab would be news links; I wanted it to be a variety, some links from cnn, bbc, and maybe other services

The fifth would be pictures

I wish it were all in one place to be scraped. And if you can imagine 50 cities at least, that's alot of cutting and pasting of content, and alot of scraping.

From my understanding it would seem that a bot could do something like this. Please let me know you thoughts. thank you.

OK, Below is an exact example of what I am trying to accomplish. I can provide the bot or application the just needs to be scraped. I was hoping that I could plug in a URL and the bot could go from there. So lets take a look.

The information needed:

Darfur, Sudan
background -

All the content except the images

All content except images

From this website I was able to access the content through

Maybe the first 3 links and description from cnn -

First 3 links and description from Foxnews, Sudan&nav=World

First 3 links and description from BBC

First 3 links and descriptions from ABS news,world

First 3 videos/description found at google video

First 3 videos/description found at cnn video

First 3 videos/description found at abc video

I didn't provide the links for these but I think you understand the logic. I have no problem researching the links but it is my hope to acquire the information from them.


Same method like above

So this is what I am really trying to do. I can imagine that this might be a tough task for a bot or application to do, but even for 50 or more locations, might be out of the question, I don't know.

Let me know your thoughts. Thanks for all your insight and help. This should finally help me to make a decision.
